Have you heard the jingle for Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup? It goes like this 'Campbell's...Chicken Noodle...Possibilities'. Well, my son thinks that is the name of the soup, possibilites. He only likes Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup, no other brand will do. (He recognizes the label.) He won't even eat the homestyle chicken noodle soup you find at cafes like Panera.
What I find amusing is how he makes his request for this soup. He'll say, "Mama, can I have possibilities?" or "Can you make possibilities?" or "Can I eat possibilities?" The first time he asked me this I understood him because I'm at home watching the same stuff he is on TV, but it threw my husband off when he was on lunch duty one weekend. I was out running an errand and when I came back my husband asked me "What's 'possiblilities'? R. keeps asking to eat it." Now he's been made aware, and thanks to the power of advertising on children's television, (which I feel only further complicates raising my kids because they want EVERYTHING), I am forced to buy only this brand of soup for my son. I need to shut off the tv.
