almost a chocolate river

it was tuesday morning,
and i had six $1 bills burning a whole in my wallet.
and two more dollars in change that i found inside my diaper bag.
covered in the crumbs of something that had fallen apart inside the pocket.
i'm guess nutrigrain bar.
but really, who can tell?
i was sad to find out my change was not accepted by the cotton candy machine.
pity.
i was really looking forward to watching my kids dance to the sugar sugar song while it spun.
the candy barrel was not a bad second option.
with a wishing well on the way.
6 pennies shorter, and we were on our way.
max kept putting different candies in her mouth.
brennan saving candies for later in his pockets,
so we ended up buying a few more pieces than i wanted,
but i got my vanilla and orange tootsie rolls,
so there were really no complaints to be had.
i just wish there was a willy wonka's chocolate factory.
just like the movie.
filled with everything chocolate.
with whipped cream mushrooms.
gum drops that fall from trees.
and
even the tulip tea cups.
a chocolate river would be nice too.
but i don't want to get too demanding here.

You're the best mom EVERRRRR! And I second that! I've always wondered why no one at least marketed the candy seen in the movie... HELLO! The lickable wall paper? Genius!
