I was pleased that there was no whining and that they both seemed to accept the candy rationing as fact.
Later, Ethan was playing with an Etch a Sketch on the 3 hour ride home when he piped up from the back seat with a question.
"How do you spell 'I don't like you' ?" he asked innocently.
I couldn't resist finding out about this one. "E? Why do you want to know how to spell that?"
He blushed, looked down sheepishly, and said, "Well, I don't like you, because I can only have one piece of candy!"
I must be doing something right.
