When I picked up Gigi from school, she wanted to know why I had several boxes of Crystal Light in the grocery bag. I don’t allow them to drink soft drinks (except the occasional Sprite in a restaurant) but she knows all I drink is Diet Sundrop. Yes, I know that’s kinda hypocritical, but it is what it is. Do as I say, not as I do and all that…
Anyway, I told her that my New Year’s Resolution was to drink more water. Which led to in depth conversation and questions about what a “reza-woo-shun” is. In a nutshell, I told her that it’s when people make a promise to try to do something that will make their life better. Without missing a beat, she says, “Oh, then, my reza-woo-shun is to kiss my Mommy every day”. Be still my heart. Couldn’t you just eat her up?
Then, there’s a slight pause…. “And to drink more Mountain Dew!!!”
And, because she’s so precious and I’m such a sap, she gets to eat cheese balls and a lollipop for lunch. Minus the Mountain Dew!
