A Lesson in How Not to Surprise Your Kid

The setting- breakfast table on Saturday morning
The cast of characters- the Allergistmommy and Son #1

Me: I have a surprise for you! We're going somewhere special today!
Son #1 (eyes lighting up): Are we going to Hawaii!?!!?
Me: Umm... no.  We're going to the pumpkin patch.
Son #1: Oh, okay.

(He loved it anyway, even if it wasn't paradise on earth.)
