Anna June brought home a report card for her second nine weeks in Kindergarten. It was all A's again.
We let her pick where we'd go out to dinner to celebrate, and she picked IHOP. We tried to persuade her to another place, as our IHOP has had abysmal service since it opened over a decade ago. On our last visit, it was so bad that we swore we'd never return.
But a smiling kindergartner with a perfect report card had more power than our vow made in disgust.
She had the Create-a-Face Pancake, which comes with a tube of strawberry yogurt you can add to the berries, bananas and whipped cream already on the giant pancake. She ate every bite.
It wasn't THAT bad. Until we started to leave. A young lady asked if she could have Ben's receipt, so she could call the number and take the survey to get $4 off of her meal. We did it, making sure she didn't get the copy with the last four digits of our debit card number, but as we left, we silently promised again never to return.
Until AJ gets to pick again for another celebration.
