TV commercials have a nasty way of getting into kids' minds. Call it want creation, a way of feeding children with new ideas and products that they just have to have! Else, you end up with a lengthy argument on why the purchase of product so and so should be deferred or denied. The latest object of discussion in our household is whether to buy or not to buy this new cheese product advertised on TV- The Laughing Cow Milky Cheese Spread.
In this round of kid vs. mom, the kid wins! (but just because mom... and dad.... and everyone else wanted to try the product too!).
