When we go camping or on a road trip, I treat it as the special occasion that it is and I buy drinks and snacks that I would not normally buy. I am not a sugary drink/soda kind of mom.
One of the drinks we had on our last camping trip were these SoBe Orange-Carrot juice blends. I didn’t buy them, I don’t even know where they came from, but Grant loved them.
He recently finished off the last one, and has been asking for more. (Again, unless we are going on a trip, I don’t buy stuff like this. I’m a mean mom.) So yesterday after school, Grant asked me if there were any more of these. Again.
Me: Grant, there aren’t anymore.
Grant: Why don’t you buy some?
Me: Because they aren’t very good for you.
Grant: Well, they taste very good.
Me: That may be the case, but you know I don’t usually buy things like that.
Grant: (clearly not getting it that it isn’t some inventory/availability issue) But they sell it at the store. It’s right by the wine bottles… You’re already right there!
