Sometimes I forget that even American candy is a novelty to our girls who have grown up here for the past 4.5 years. I forget even the most simple things aren't common for them. Like Disney characters, English slang, drinking fountains, or playing on grass.
But today it was American Candy. They were given a bunch of new candy: Tootsie Rolls (which they busted up over, and thought was the funniest name), Peppermints (kinda spicy for Syd), and their favorite: Smarties!
I overheard Eden & Sydney talking about them, "Sydney - you have to try these! They are called Smarties, and they make you have good ideas."
That was the best thing I'd heard all year. I love their insights!
