As a special treat today, I took my kids to the local candy store. The plan was to get a little ice cream and cool off after a very hot afternoon at T-ball camp.
We walked into the store. My kids' eyeballs got as big as saucers.
"Look at these candy lips!" my son exclaimed.
"Look at these lemon drops!" said my daughter.
"What would you like?" I asked. (I know, that was a dumb question!)
By the time we left, my son had a huge lollipop in his hand, with blue sticky stuff on his nose.
"I wish our house was like this!" my daughter exclaimed.
I for one, was glad it wasn't! What a mess that would be!
