I am not even sure how to possibly start this post. Ironically, I had just got done bragging about how brilliant, wonderful and caring my 14 year old has been lately, when I go to set my alarm on my phone and find this video.
See, for the past couple years, my sweet wonderful oldest child has been a bit of a pain in the a**. I am sure it is hormones etc. But he has been a beast to live with. All the eye rolling, walking away while I am talking to him and just in general being a early teenage boy. However the last few months he has almost been human again. Almost.
When I was a kid we tried to eat 6 saltines in 60 seconds and whistle. I had to Google Cinnamon Challenge to find out what they were doing. A person attempts to eat or swallow a teaspoonful of ground cinnamon in under 60 seconds without drinking anything. For $5 bucks?! Really?
The thing is, I am really not that surprised that the 14 year old would attempt to so this to his siblings, after all I am the oldest of 6 kids and the things I did to my siblings… well, they had better just not comment! But my daughter! Why did I expect better from her!!??
As I write this, my sweet, peacefully sleeping children are blissfully unaware that their parents have seen the video and are awaiting their awakening…. after all, that was $5 bucks in cinnamon they wasted! They better start looking for coupon to replace that 🙂
