A Thought During Z's Bedtime Ritual

So I don’t really know what those crunchy things are that are given out as an appetizer at some Chinese restaurants, but it came to me this evening that I might be willing to trade Zane in for a lifetime supply of their crunchy goodness.

I know. I know what you’re thinking: But what would Crunchy Thing Company want with an almost-three year old with severe asthma who is most likely unable to eat any of their products due to his numerous food allergies? Good point, gentle reader, but I am not really concerned with their interests here.

For me, trading in my firstborn might be a reasonable exchange for crunchy things for life.

BUT OF COURSE, I’m kidding. I jest. I joke.

They’d have to throw in a lifetime supply of duck sauce for me to even consider parting with my potty-training preschooler.

I don't judge you. Not even slightly. I think anyone in their right mind would do the same thing, although I'd angle for some chop sticks too.

Shoot, I'd give up 2 kids and 3 cats to anyone who promised me a lifetime supply of homemade, extra butter rice krispie treats.

That ooey goodness never talks back, has an attitude or wakes you up to feed it!

I think you are quite resonable here and I'm with you on this one.

Good call on asking for more! I don't want to part with Zane too cheaply - I worked hard to get him where he is.

Oooh, extra butter rice krispie treats. I think I might have to come up with a top ten list of things I'd trade my kid for...
