Before treats came in a box

Sydney's really into "rollbacks."

She spies an end cap of Rice Krispie treats at Walmart the other day.

"Look! They're on rollback! Can we get 'em? Can we?"


As she put a box in the cart, I said, "You know, when I was a kid, we had to make our own Rice Krispie treats. You couldn't buy them already made.

Her big, brown eyes welled with tears. "You poor thing," she said.

I didn't laugh at her much as I wanted to.

Then, I realized I was sounding like my mother. I didn't even go into the fact that when I was a kid, Nabisco expected us to spread our own peanut butter on their Ritz crackers.

That might have been too much for her to handle.
