Mother-in-Law Prize

Living with a house of boys, my mother-in-law was frequently disappointed that no one noticed her new haircut. She solved the problem by buying a chocolate bar on the way home from the salon. The first person to notice the new style got to eat the prize. My husband tells me that often he would notice the chocolate before the hair then run and say, "Oh Mom, I like your hair."

A few days ago, we were iChatting with his parents. I said, "Pam, you got a new style!"

Hubby said, "She wins the chocolate."

We all laughed. Guess what came in the mail for me today? And it wasn't a Snickers bar.

What a way to get the "boys" and others to notice- gourmet chocolate would definitely get my attention. You know you are tempering your baby's palate for the good stuff!!!

So glad you were over the sicklys so you could enjoy it. I did not know that John used to see the chocolate bar BEFORE he mentioned my haircuts! That's pretty funny now.

LOL What a great idea! Enjoy that yummy chocolate. I often see the Ritters choc. at Trader Joe's. I will need to try it now!

A message to Kiara and those of you who have never tried Ritter bars: the Milk Chocolate with Butter Biscuit is out of this world!
