Not my child, but in college, I was on the swim team, and we used to DRIVE from Maryland to Florida over Christmas break, to train. My coach drove, and one memorable year, we took a detour through Tennessee, to drop off his daughter, who was maybe 3? at his parent's or in-laws. In the gigantic 10 passenger college vans. So at one point, we are all hungry, and looking for somewhere to stop and eat. But prior to that, for 2 solid hours, she screamed, at the top of her lungs "I WANT COKE AND SALAD" Needless to say we were quite happy to stop and oblige.
