Haha, tricked you!

Well, my children somehow have found this new fascination with soda! (Soda is the devil, by the way!..i could throw some statistics at you, but i won't!) anyway, we get all this juice from WIC, so i started brain storming! I had bought Seltzer water to make Chocolate Egg Creams (yumm). Typically i water down all of our juices. (I am typing half thoughts, but it will all come together! ) Well, at supper the other night they start asking for soda-probably because there was a bit of Gingerale left form the bread i baked with it. i told them no, but they just kept on going with "but mom, why can't we have soda? why do you think soda is so bad? we won't get fat we promise!" so i said ok, you want soda,i will make you some soda. I poured the Juice and added equal parts of seltzer water to it! They thought it was the BEST thing ever!! I was happy and they won too! Clayton could not figure out HOW a mom coudl MAKE soda! Yeah, i guess that makes me pretty cool in his little head! LOL!

So funny! We also drink seltzer as a way of avoiding soda, and I add juice to mine. To Jason Jr., it might as well be soda - he thinks it's a really special drink! (I must confess to drinking Coke at various times for the caffeine - I don't do coffee, and a mom's just gotta have caffeine sometimes!)

Jenny, so glad there are other mom's who don't do the soda thing! (it is a novelty when my kids get it) And I do have coffee everyday, i am not ashamed. :)
