On my way home from the mall today I took a detour to my favorite grocery store to grab some sweets. Normally I wouldn't mention it, though my dentist made me feel guilty about my eating habits, and this is sort of a public confession...except I'm not really confessing! Oh dear :X
So after I slunk in the front door, and ran for the candy aisle and began scooping like a mad-woman (ok not really), these two whiney kids see me and fly at the open canisters and begin stuffing candies in their mouths.
I felt this indescribable feeling of guilt, dismay, and angst at their sorrow when their mother yanked them away, while *I* stood there shame-facedly clutching three bags of sweets and my other hand still holding the spoon. What's a kid to do when they make everything so freakin' cute and delicious??!
