My daughter's chocolate-themed birthday party is this Saturday. So naturally, we had to take a little trip to the grocery store to get some chocolate.
We walked into the candy aisle. "Okay kid, pick some candy," I said.
Well, that was a mistake. She grabbed a bag of Kit Kats, and Hershey bars, and Reese Peanut Butter cups.
"That's enough," I said.
She gave me a look. "Mom, this is no way enough!" Then she grabbed some York peppermint patties, and M & Ms, and Twix bars."
I shook my head. "Is that enough?"
"No, Mom, it's not enough."
Then she went for some non chocolate items - nerds, black Twizzlers, and Sourpatch kids.
"Wait a minute," I said. "Something's not right, here! This is a chocolate party, not a candy party!"
"But Mom," she said. "One of my friends who's coming doesn't like chocolate. She needs something to eat, too."
"Yeah, how about pizza, and veggies, and fruit? That's something else."
To make a long story short, we ended up buying $65.00 worth of candy. The moral of the story is this: Never let a kid loose in a candy aisle!
