Have it All

I once saw my daughter have an argument with herself about whether she wanted apple or orange juice. It was the funniest/saddest thing I have ever witnessed. She stood in the kitchen in front of the two containers I had taken out. What followed was an interesting interchange with herself that actually ended in tears. “I want OJ. No! I don’t want OJ. I want apple. I want orange! Waaaah!” Wow.

Before her head could explode from the pressure of choosing a tasty beverage, I managed to pry the empty cup out of her hands. Into it I poured a 50-50 mix of apple juice and orange juice. She was in thankful awe of my great Mother Knows Best skills.

Perfect to satisfy the multi-dimensional, multi-personality of your little one, check out these fantastically clever patchwork Bermuda shorts by Hartford Kids. Time to get dressed, son. What pattern do you want? Flowers. I want tiny flowers. NO! Big ones! I want this plaid. NO! I want that plaid. Relax, kid. You can have it all.

Very rarely does a parent win. In this case, we have a winner. So sit back, relax and celebrate with a big cup of juice. What’s your pleasure—apple or orange?
