Today my amazing hubby went to the store and picked up some groceries for me, giving me a chance to get some much needed rest. While at the store Gregg picked up some Peanut M&Ms for Violet as a surprise. She came up to me with a giant smile on her face and showed me her surprise. Here is part of the conversation that followed...
Violet ~ Look Mommy! Daddy brought home a surprise for me!
Me ~ That was awfully nice of your Daddy to do that.
Violet ~ Uh huh (as she shoves a candy in her mouth).
Me ~ I want a surprise too! Do you think Daddy got me something?
Violet ~ Aww Mommy, we can't always get what we want (to which she offers me one of her candies).
It's funny to hear your exact words thrown back at you. Hopefully they're the words that you want to hear! In this case, I'm not so sure I wanted to hear those exact words but at least I know she's finally getting the point.
