Gum

While I was putting Claire in her car seat today this is the conversation that took place...

C- "Mom, can I have some gum?"
E- "Yes, but I need you to wait until we get to the store."
C- "But Mommmy (whine, whine, whine), I want gum NOW!
E- "Is that a nice way to ask me?"
C- "No, but Mom, I am weally cute, and I have a smiwey face on today!"

How do you keep a straight face when they give you answers like that?! I didn't give in though! She was given gum as soon as we got to the store!

To be honest, I usually don't keep a straight face when I get responses like that. I usually laugh out loud! Not sure if that's the best response, but I can't help myself sometimes!

GC and I have had similar conversations lately. What is it with gum?! Her answer to you was really cute...and no, I don't keep a straight face on for those answers ever!
