"Home Food"

One of the new things Josh has experienced this year is the "snack from the gas station" stop. I've done this a couple of times when I feel like rewarding him for being good at school. Today, he felt entitled to another snack stop, I think, as a parent, sometimes you need to say no, as to not spoil the child. I felt that responsibility today. I told him that we would get a snack at home. He argued this for a while, and I stood my ground. The debate culminated with him proclaiming,
"I don't like home food!"
Thank you Josh, for another original term. Gotta love kids.

Yeah, there's something about non-home food that you never totally get over, but being responsible for the budget sure helps...
