What Is A Twinkie? Did we learn that in school?

"What is a twinkie?" That is what Superstar asked today! We were at the bank and DH asked the kids, "Do you want to go in the bank with me today? They have free twinkies"

So that's what caused Superstar to ask what's a twinkie. In response to Superstar question DH said "Well come in [the bank] with me and find out". He then turned to Web-Princess and said "Come on Honey, you too." So Web-princess climbed out and as she did I could hear her say "Yeah, Daddy what's a twinkie?"

As they all went in I sat there in the car and thought to myself. "Wow, We (my husband and I) are terrible parents. My 9 and 8 year olds don't know what a twinkie is!! OUCH!

After the bank we went to walmart so the kids could buy some things they have been "saving" up for. At the register the cashier asked Web-princess how old are you, because she did a really good job of counting out the money.

I told Web-princess it's okay you can tell her how old you are. So web-princess told her she was 8. Then the cashier asked her if she learned that [counting money] in school. 

Web-princess then put her hand to her chin, and started to rub it. She's thinking and all of the sudden she turns to me and ask "Well did we learn that in school?" "Yes we learned that.", I replied.   All the while I'm THINKING "Duh!" LOL So I guess that means I'm failing on the homeschool front too! LOL

  1. Hi!! Thanks for following my blog! Speaking of Twinkies, my husband and I are just too cheap to buy Twinkies but for some reason, he gave in to temptation last week and he bought some. He didn't buy the ordinary Twinkies, he bought Shrek Twinkies!
    They're really strange with green creamy stuff in the middle.
    I prefer Ding Dongs, myself!!
    Do your kids know Ding Dongs? Maybe it isn't a good thing to introduce them to, I now have a lifelong obsession for them. Not good for my diet....

  2. I don't think they know what a ding-dong is LOL!! That's funny that you mention the "green filling". The ones that our bank gave us had green filling too. :)
