I enjoyed the pack meeting. They did a cake raffle. We bought a ticket, and we didn't win. I was fine with it. I guess if you win not only do you win the cake, you win the chance to donate the cake the next month. Like I said I was fine with it. However, Noah was not so fine with it.
To make matters worse I tore the ticket in half after they gave the 2 cakes out. Then they drew for other prizes. Noah was really upset when he saw I tore the ticket in half. Then he was even more upset when we didn't win any other prizes either.
So take a good time with your Tiger Cub, mix it up with not winning, and what do you get....a crying Tiger Cub. What's a Mom to do?
Well I'll tell you what this Mom did. I looked in my Tiger Cub book and what did I see? An elective to visit a bakery. So, I say to Noah. 'How would you like to visit a bakery, and buy a cake?' He said while wiping his tears 'Yes'. So, we left the pack meeting and went to the bakery at the Winn Dixie. We talked with the Bakery employee, drooled over all the yummy cakes, and Noah picked out a double layer, chocolate fudge cake. Then Mommy signed off on the elective.
Was it the right thing to do? You will most likely say no.
Do I care? Nope
P.S. Well maybe I care more about what you think then I let on. Leave me a comment about my parenting, or leave me a comment about a similar situation you had as a kid, or with your kid, or just leave me a comment. I am very comment less....Are you listening? Is anybody out there?
