    I only buy from my granddaughter. I order 3 boxes, minimum, the kind she and her brothers like, and then leave them at their house for them to eat.

    I remember that, too. My mother was the cookie chairman and we had those stacks all over, too.And then we went out door to door to peddle them, by ourselves!!!! Not anymore.

    You have revived a memory I thought I had lost. Decades ago when I was a Girl Scout and my mother was our leader, she became the cookie leader(? whatever?) for the area/region/whatever. Our dining room was FILLED with cases of cookies. They took over the house. They were everywhere. My younger brothers were driven to distraction becuase the only cookies they were permitted to have were the few boxes my mother bought from my sister and me, while they knew they were surrounded by millions of cookies. The entire experience was a test of my mother's commitment to being a GS leader. I will never know exactly what she took away from the whole experience cause I never thought to ask her about it and she's gone now. But GS cookies have a special meaning for me to this day -- I just miss the old Burry Biscuit Company peanut butter oatmeal cookies of our youth.

    It is great to have wonderful memories. Like this. I hope Sarah remembers this years from now.....it is part of our "mommy & me" time. We love and look forward to this every year....even if it gets tough to maintain until it is done....six weeks is a chunk of time.

    Oh, i would not either BUT the kids need to do their own Selling! Great life experience in working with the public, learning people skills, learn to communicate, might even find a career in sales! Or find out that sales is not a career for them. The kids need to do the asking and delivering. Not the parents. And, if the Troop has a Plan for the proceeds, tell the customers what the plans are. I want to know. And, yes, I will ask!

    When we started out as Daisy's, Sarah could barely talk....to shy. Now, six years later, she is strong, confident, & even humorous with her sales approach. I am a very proud momma. And, she loves to share what we do with donations....we give to the family abuse center, which is my favorite charity. For the girls, they get to vote. This year, they get a shopping spree at Sam moon, ice skating, and a trip to a theme reteraunt. They will have a blast!!! As assistant troop leader perk, I get to go as well. Eventually, Sarah will get to go to girl scout camps...but ten is too young....maybe 12.
