Confession Numbers 618 & 619

Confession #618

During our bedtime routine last night, the Tongginator made An Announcement. I knew this relationship was headed to a danger zone... I just knew it. Poor, poor Tonggu Daddy. He's in for a world of hurt in about ten years. Or maybe not.

TONGGINATOR: Guess what, Momma?

TONGGU MOMMA
: What, Tongginator?

TONGGINATOR: Zee told me today that I am his girlfriend, so that means he's my boyfriend.

TONGGU MOMMA
: Oh really? What do boyfriends and girlfriends do when they are five?

TONGGINATOR: Well... we play together. Except... actually, I don't play with him; he plays with me. Because he likes to play boy stuff. And I don't like boy stuff, so if he wants to play with me, he has to do what I want to do.

Confession # 619

The husband brought home three packages of Williams Sonoma Peppermint Bark. Which I love. (I mean - seriously - who doesn't? Except for perhaps the Happy Geek, who believes that all peppermint candy should be banned since it tastes like toothpaste. But whatever. Some people have NO taste.) Anyways, the husband brought home three packages of the yummy goodness.

Except that I ate so much of it yesterday morning, I had to go to the store to buy another tin. And I didn't tell the husband. Which means I surreptitiously replaced a large amount of the so-called missing peppermint bark so that it doesn't look like I ate as much as I did.

But I did. Eat that much.

The End.

OMG you just made me laugh so hard! The Peppermint Bark story sounds just like something we would do around here. I've had my eye on that stuff for awhile now but haven't had the opportunity to try any. I think I'm going to have to make a stop at the mall one of these days and pickup a tin. Maybe after Christmas when they discount all the leftovers. ;-)

Rhonda said...

TM, I swear on all things holy and chocolate, that we were separated at birth. I <3 chocolate bark, but I never buy it, or I'd run out of money trying to replace it all...

bbmomof2boys said...

That's too funny about Z and T! Big T said just last night that who ever marries Little T is in for it because she is like a little dictator! :)

Peppermint Bark huh? Never tried it! *gasp*

Hugs,
Carla

You are very brilliant. I never thought to go to the store and replace. I always just never corrected hubs assumption that I let the KIDS eat too much!

And what is it with the Kinderg??? We tried a new church this last weekend. I hung out with MM in the kid room for a bit to get her settled. I look up and this one boy is saying he recognized her to another boy. I pointed him out and asked MM if she recognized him. She nodded her head yes. Then she cut her eyes at me and told me that he is the boy that tried to kiss her on the bus. So I left my kid in the church class with the bandit kisser! LOL! (At least she informed me that she has another guy friend that makes sure he can't kiss her.)

And that Miss T, is how Happy Marriages are made:)

Desiree' said...

So funny! I live near the WS outlet and they have it on sale here. Bought way to much, also the homemade marshmellows!! ooh we dip them in dark chocolate and they are to die for. As for eating to much...well, what DH doesn't know won't hurt him right?? LOL

Aus said...

Good morning TM - you do know that TD reads your blog right? Ooops - hope the cat isn't out of the bag.... ;)

I'm all things peppermint - keep a bag in the car all the time - and as for the consumption of mass quantities....it's Christmas - you are heretofore absolved!

And finally - the way your dd is acting - maybe a good gift for TD this year would be a nice shotgun? Ya know - something to be cleaning when the new boyfriend first comes by the house to see T (or should I say "lil Empress')?....I'm just sayin.....:)

hugs - aus and co.

Chris said...

You are one funny woman!!!
My family knows that if something good (ie food) comes into the house, it is fair game and there is no guarantee it will last 24 hours!!!

And your little girl, hold on tight! Trust me what you see at 5 is not too far off of what will be at 15!

I know, we've survived the teenage years with one daughter...

This is the funny thing: my 20 year old daughter is definitely and older version of your little one....
and my five year old daughter and your daughter seem to be in cahoots with each other...they are so alike!

Having feisty, strong personality kids who have a mind of their own can be challenging, but oh so rewarding! Life is never dull! :)

Blue said...

hahahhahahhaaa! you eat that yummy goodness, TM! waistline be darned!

Also, Bob shuns all things peppermint as well. But I love him anyway.

Myrnie said...

I've been ignoring the fact that I have everything I need to make peppermint bark. I'm not sure I can ignore this fact any longer- thanks a lot. :P

*grin*

Better keep a watch on that little girl o'yours! Won't be little much longer :) Too funny...

Buckeroomama said...

Confession #618: I'd say you won't really have to worry about the T. "He has to do what I want to do." Love it!

Confession #649: I'll have to google Peppermint Bark.

Mamatini said...

It must be a Tonggu thing, again. Ina, in Pre-K, announced that she likes a ... Kindergartener! An older man! She also thinks Shang on Mulan is sooo handsome!

Isa, on the other hand, wouldn't even know boys exist - except for ball playing - if it weren't for her younger sister's constant talk about them.

Kristi said...

While I've never gone out to replace a package of candy that the hubby bought, I have many times bought, hidden, and consumed stashes without anyone in my house ever being the wiser. Well, except for my scale. Which is why I have Weigh in Wednesdays...

Gail said...

All I can say is, what a GREAT idea to replace what you've eaten...hee hee. Thank you TM!

And the WS peppermint bark is evil good!

Rachel@just another day in paradise said...

re: confession # 619: [looks around suspiciously, lowers voice to whisper] I've had to replace the replacement. . .which might be why I'm headed to "skinny jeans" class this pm.

re: confession # 618: Well, tonggu daddy should feel slightly better about letting her co-mingle with the opposite gender, considering they have to do what SHE wants to do. Hubs is still saying Kady shall join a convent by 14. . .I, on the other hand, think he'll send her before kindergarten. : )

Patty O. said...

I love it!!!! Replacing peppermint bark! That totally sounds like something I would do. And T is too funny! Glad she can keep the boys in line!

Janet said...

I could use some of that. It sounds delightful about now. And Happy Geek really doesn't like peppermint candy? REALLY? She's weird.

LucisMomma said...

Both confessions are too funny. Well, the first one is just sweet. Our Luci told me yesterday that the neighbor boy is now on her "ok, even though he's a boy" list. That makes 2, and she's only 5. Yipes, what are you and I in for, in a few years??

Cavatica said...

Clearly relationships are tricky at any age. BB is 2 and kisses boys and girls in her class. It's a goodbye ritual. There are times they all line up for their goodbye kisses. It's a close class.

Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...

I would have done the same thing!! I do love the WS peppermint bark, but I cannot eat it in large quantities..... the mint gets to me. Now straight chocolate, or heaven help, chocolate and peanut butter.....LOOK OUT!! I can't stop......

Happy Holidays!

Oh I think we live in similar houses. Amelia informed me on the way home tonight that Alyssa, was saying, "Amelia has a boyfriend" and all of the kids were laughing at her. I suggested she say, "Simon is my friend, but I'm too little to have a boyfriend." I got an eye roll.
As far as the peppermint bark - I used to make that as a kid (yes me, cook) I would melt almond bark and smash candy canes to bits and stir it up - then poor it out to dry. Cheap and easy. Well I discovered Candy Cane Hershey kisses this year and I've eaten 2 bags - YES, I have!

Annie said...

Oh my gosh you make me laugh!!! LOVE peppermint bark!! YUM!!!

CC said...

Just say that you used the peppermint bark to make the chocolate peppermint chews that I gave the recipe for last week. then really make it with chocolate chips and crushed candy canes. ;)

Michelle said...

Hmmmmmmmm.... purchasing chocolate to replace [much] missing chocolate is something that I would never do. Only that I have done it. Probably more times than I would like to admit. And Peppermint Bark sounds yummy. Now I'm hungry. :)

planetnomad said...

Peppermint bark sounds awesome! Enjoy!

When Abel was 6, he was telling me about school one day, about PE. "Who did you play with?" I asked, and he said "Someone who loves me." ROFL. They were "amoureuse" (this was in French) most of the year. She was a cute little French girl named Mona (Pron Moona) and we became friends with her parents.
