This post is dedicated to my gal, Alex, at Only Bad Chi. In light of a post she wrote about a month ago, this scenario reminded me of her love for donuts.
Today, my daughter came home from school and this is the conversation we had:
My 9-year-old: “I had donuts today for someone’s birthday.”
Me: “Really? Donuts? At school?” (disapproving voice)
Her: “No mom, they were SUGAR donuts.” like this made it okay.
Me: “As opposed to donuts without sugar?”
Her: “NO! They were only the white powdered kind.”
Me: “Ohhhh…. well, in that case, that’s okay then.”
So the schools won’t allow us to bring anything sugary, yet they let someone hand out treats at the end of the school day so they are amped up at home for the parents?
Meanwhile, her brother is belly-aching over the fact she got a donut and he didn’t. Ugh! Thanks school. Awesome.
