Mommy can I buy you this?

December 31st, 2007 at 08:13 pm

This is an actual conversation I had with my son.

GMC: (holding up some sort of sugar concoction shaped like some TV character) "Mommy can I buy you this?"

Me: "No, it is shaped sugar and prolly tastes like crap, but thanks"

GMC: (holding up a marshmallow snowman with sparkle sugar decoration) "Can I buy you this?"

ME: "No, honey why do you want to buy me this stuff?"

GMC: "But it is spice thing"...(he thought the snow man would be like a spice gum drop, which he knows I do like)

Me: "No actually it is marshmallow (pointing to words on package), But very cool remembering I like spice drops. Now why do you want to buy me something?"

GMC: "I just want to get you and Daddy some junk food."

Me: "Ok how about I help you out, Would you like me to tell you what kind of junk food I would eat?"


Me: "Here, I love peanut butter and chocolate, you can buy me this ornament and I will get junk food and an ornament for the tree. And you can get Daddy the MnM kind"

Now on the one hand, I have an adorable son who wanted to buy me something. Very proud of him.

On the other hand,I still don't know why he picked junk food to treat us with, nor do I know why he felt like doing it in the first place.

Not to mention the kid can read, but didn't bother to do so at all! I am still not sure he knows what he bought me.

    How sweet, and thoughtful of him. I bet he picked junk food because it is such a treat to him (like most kids) that he thought you would be sure to love it too. My DS2 doesn't read wrappers either, I think there is too much other stuff on them besides words that they can't figure out what to read and what to look at. He just looks at the glitz and guesses (usually wrong) what is inside. Come to think of it so do some adults I know.

    Hehe, yes, that's is very sweet. Better than me too. My daughter asked one time what I wanted for Christmas. I jokingly said, "Buy daddy a stock!" She didn't understand. I laughed. Yes, I'm mean, but I hope she'll understand it some day. Then, perhaps I'll buy her a stock instead.
