They are so important to kids.
For years, whenever I go to visit my
we take our three youngest to
Dollars & Donuts.
They Love this tradition and really count on it.
A visit without D&D
would be very disappointing!
First is Donuts
so that we have extra energy for Dollars.
(Just what they need...)
Then, we cross the street to the dollar store,
where they spend their hard earned cash
on candy and crazy stuff.
Isn't it lovely?
And, so alluring...
That is Sherrie. I left her in there.
There is only so much excitement
I can take in one day.
These two reverted, by a couple of years,
with this purchase.
Later we found out, when one asked for a lighter,
that the plan was to blow these "guys" up.
Have you ever had one of those bizarre days when
everywhere you went you see the same strange thing?
There is a movie called "After Hours"
When I keep seeing someone,
or something unusual all day
it reminds me of that movie.
It's a weird movie,
but for some reason,
through all it's craziness,
I like it.
This was one of those moments.
I love D&D and hope that it never ends.
But, having older children,
I know that there will be that day...
So, for now, it is
Dollars & Donuts
every single time we visit!
