In Haste

Just a quick post, but who else can I grumble to?

Why does bear do this?  He swore undying adoration for a particular snack.  I bought five as they were on sale.  I had been rationing the snack, just to be on the safe side, but thought I was safe having a few in hand.  Then the morning of the delivery, not the night before when I could have changed the order but ten minutes before the shop arrived, bear broke the bad news that he couldn't possibly manage a mouthful of it ever again.

Yes, I am tempted to tell bear that it's all that's in next time he grumbles about wanting snacks, but I'm fighting a different battle at the moment and I don't have the energy to fight on two fronts.

And what is even more annoying, I know that at some point bear will complain that I don't buy that snack anymore.  But by that time the snacks will be out of date and I am out of patience.


  1. Sounds like you need a break! Kids are like that sometimes. Maybe he'll change his mind and want some more. Otherwise I hope it's something yummy you wouldn't mind eating!

  2. Can they be frozen? That can extend the shelf life.

  3. Give the snacks to bear's friends when they visit. Bet you bear will like them again once you've given them out!

  4. Sounds about normal for children - just plain awkward!
