Our Snacker

Have you ever let one of your kids do something that you know you probably shouldn't let them do...but you allow it anyway for the ten minutes of peace you get out of the deal?

Ten minutes...you can use to finish blow drying your hair.

Ten minutes...you can make dinner using both hands!!

Ten minutes...if you are a mom...you can fold two loads of laundry, send a kid to put them away, prepare everyone's stuff for the next day, sign off on homework, load the dishwasher and wipe the kitchen table.

So the real question...is that ten minutes worth the time it will take you to calm her down from taking the Pop Tart away, get the Pop Tart out of her hair, put all your canned goods back, sweep the floor and listen to her sit outside the pantry door and whine for more?!?



  1. I completely agree!!! Easier to hug and love to calm down than to try to do all that with a crabby baby!

  2. I agree!
    I let Kynnedy do stuff like that all the time!
    Nice to know I'm not the only one! :)

  3. I don't have kids, but I agree it would be must easier to just let them do it then to deal with the crying.

  4. I would have just stuck her IN the pantry and closed the door. That'll teach'er... right?

    By the way, when did you say you want me to babysit next?
