Photo Story - Times, They are a Changing...

A friend stopped by to give me a little early Chirstmas gift (thank you friend!) and as she was leaving, I got a notice about fraudulant activity on a financial account of mine - that stressed me out. So off to the library Harrison and I went to return (ironically) some past -due books and check out some Christmas books [and videos]. We came home with State Fair, White Christmas, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (original) and to round it out - Scooby Doo (the cartoon); not to mention a few good books. I guess we couldn't decide.

From there we went to Starbucks to use my newly acquired [and perfectly timed] gift card on my favorite holiday drink, an Eggnog Latte. Mmmm. No more stress for me.

I also got a little something for Harrison... a Hazelnut Cream (and it tastes as good as it sounds)! This year I've finally let him try all these fun things like hot chocolate (at Halloween), hot apple cider (Thanksgiving) and now, a Hazelnut cream from Starbucks.

He's almost four years old and I'm glad I held off from giving him all these yummy treat experiences. It's so joyous watching him relish in the flavor "firsts" and being able to express his excitement not only on his face but with his own words.

What does he think of the Hazelnut Cream?
"Mmm, Mommy, this customer treat is my all-time favoritest drink in the whole world!"
And then he asked,
"Is this a healty drink?"

Um, Err...

Every time someone posts something about SB I want to jog down the street and get me a mocha! Mmmmm!

You could tell him that it is good for his mental health! A good treat every once in a while is a good thing! :)

Sure it is! Good for the soul!

A customer treat? What a vocabulary!
Of course it's healthy -- as long as it comes from a parent.

That is awesome. I couldn't agree more...it is so much more fun when they can articulate it!

Kimber said...

How funny that he asked if it was healthy.

Loved this! Kidisms always give me a laugh! I'm thinking he wants to have some more and wants to see if it is healthy enough to have it all the time. he probably sees you with Starbucks all the time so why not him? Smart kid!

It's 'emotionally' healthy. :)

What is it about seeing a Starbucks coffee that makes me salivate. OY!

I had a hard time reading anything past fraudulent activity. YUCK. I hope everything's ok!
You're awesome for not letting it spoil your day (I really didn't intend to rhyme) :-)
