Today I eat what Mama used to forbid me to do: cola cake with caramel popcorn
But it happens to me a whole lot when Captain Chaos rides one of his extensive begging attacks. I get in a bad mood when I'm standing at a cash register, in front of an ice cream parlor, bakery or just in the middle of the green field and always just say "no" like a depressive robot. Then the only consolation is the thought that it seems that all parents are and always will be.
Of course, I was a very sweet child myself and never begged so unnervingly - that's obvious. In retrospect, my mom was not very strict about food either, but in two ways she had clear limits: cola (for teeth and caffeine) and popcorn (for teeth and abdominal pain). But I've also learned from my mom that there are exceptions to every rule - and that's why the son and his once-in-a-year-old-mom have the greatest exception today: cola popcorn cake!
You can have a very lively astronaut vampire (ask not) an impressive 5 minutes of revered-happy silence. "Oh my god, Mama," breathes the best son of all. "You have really put Cola in there?"
From us too we can dance a bit out of line as guardians and just say "yes". That's a lot of fun.
