Can't the bank hand out fruit to kids...not lollipops?
So I went through the bank drive through yesterday to make a deposit. I had both boys with me in the car, and we were jamming to some kid friendly music. I saw the teller getting my envelop ready, and watched her pick up two lollipops. I got annoyed. I don't know why though. When i was a kid, i loved getting lollipops from the bank. What am i supposed to say? "I'm sorry. We try and avoid simple sugars, like letting sugar syrup harden in a mold that my children can then suck on. Do you happen to have some grapes, or maybe an apple instead?" In the end, I took them, said thank you, and put them away for later. I saved them for big brother and gave Joshua something that I could carb count when we stopped. It just sucks that we have to play these chess games every moment of every day. I guess it still frustrates me a good amount because I only get these experiences on a limited basis. Unfortunately I am usually at work during the better part of the day. When the boys and I are out, just the guys, these things really make me appreciate all of the work and stress that Shannon has to deal with on a daily basis. D-Moms have to be some of the strongest people in the world. If the aren't, they fake it really well!
