Me-“Clara do you want me to pack a few extra cookies to share with friends on the bus?”
Clara-“Yeah, Ok Mom.”
Me-“You promise you’ll eat your lunch first, right?”
Let’s just say an 8-year-old has hoodwinked me. I had to pick Clara up a couple times from school last week only to discover she’s been a typical kid and eating her dessert and fruit for lunch and sharing the rest of her meal after school.
All I could do was bust out laughing. I mean really, this is my doing. I've learned something though. From now on I’m only packing her a small treat.
At least the bus kids are getting some healthy food. Hey, someone has to eat it!
