There are things you should not push the boundaries on.
And chocolate coins are clearly one of them.
After recently taking the girls to a blogging gig where they got to watch Cars 2 in 3D for a select screening in a city penthouse apartment, then headed off with stashbags (yes, they were much more than a showbag, a big stash of things thus, the Stashbag). I asked Popps if there was anything she would like to put in the bag, for the kids "who live in trees" I don't know why she thinks this is where less fortunate people live but she does.
She handed over pretty much half the stuff, a DVD, a CD, an actual Car and a Cars drink bottle.
This morning when I was preparing the stuff to take to the group I mentioned the other day, I also snuck into both of their rooms and took out the bags of chocolate money and added them to my 'stuff' bag.
I had no idea she had plans for those chocolates.
Not just for eating, they were to be real money in the play kitchen, to be used for playing shops and to make her money box sound full.
There were tears aplenty when I said "They are gone".
I have learnt my lesson, in future, I will be very proud that she is willing to so easily hand over so much and to not stretch the limits of giving by a five year old.
As for Cars 2, I can't tell you about it. I was too busy
