Tears and Doughnut Holes

We went over to Jack and Phyllis's for a visit yesterday.
After lunch, the children found a box of doughnut holes.
Although they didn't eat a particularly good lunch their sweet little faces forced us to give in.
As Caleb reached into the box for his second doughnut hole, we told him he couldn't have the ones covered in powdered sugar.
He reached for it anyway.
"No, eat this one," Adam said as he handed him one covered in cinnamon.
Caleb's head fell, his sweet little face looked up at his Daddy and started pouting.
Not a normal, every day pout, but one of the most pitiful pouts I have ever seen.
His bottom lip flipped out and quivered.
Tears immediately filled his eyes and rolled down his cheeks.
It was truly heartbreaking.
And a very happy little boy, got his powdered sugar doughnut!

Oh, the drama. I'd cry for doughnuts though, I get it. ;)

It is hard to resist that white sugar just calling out to you.
