This Evening

This Morning

From breakfast this morning, he wanted a bowl of Corn Pops with milk. I wasn’t even aware that we even had Corn Pops in the house, but I allowed it.

Later, he told me that he didn’t like them and moved the bowl to the sink. I moved it back to the dining room and reminded him that he asked for them.

Later still, while I wasn’t looking, he poured it out into the sink on the towel (why was a towel in the sink?!) and sneaked back to bed.

So, eventually I went to him and said, “I have a problem. The problem is that you misbehaved and poured out your Corn Pops in the sink on a towel. Were you supposed to do that? (No.) Did you know that there was a towel there? (Yes.) Anyway, my problem is that you misbehaved but if I don’t give you another breakfast, you’ll be hungry. So here’s my idea: You pay for the Corn Pops with your own money and I’ll give you another breakfast.”

He readily agreed to the deal. “Deal. How much do Corn Pops cost?”

I said, “I don’t know; let’s find out!” So I searched online. A box seemed to be $3.99, so I charged him a dollar. He agreed and enjoyed his next breakfast of corn flakes with milk and a strawberry Pop-Tart. (Mommy would later find it funny that the computer had an open browser window on Corn Pops.)

Apparently he thought–maybe the box suggested it–that the Corn Pop would taste like kettle corn. Which Mommy says that he doesn’t like that much anyway.

Later This Evening
