The girls had a dental appointment yesterday for a check-up and cleaning. They both received a good "report card" (whew!), so we went to Dollar Tree to celebrate by picking up some new water toys for the pool. While we were there ...
Megan, pointing to a giant pixie stick: Mom, can we get this?
Amanda: Mom, look! (pointing to my favorite Reese's) Can we get some?
Me: NO. You two just got your teeth cleaned at the dentist. The last thing I'm gonna' do is buy you SUGAR.
Megan: I reeeeally have to go pee.
Me: Well you're not gonna' go here. There's a McDonald's across the parking lot. How 'bout if we go there, use their restroom, and then get an ice cream cone!
Like I said, NO SUGAR.
