The WAT-AAH! Challenge Results: Illinois (2009)

Tricia- Night Owl Mama- Took The WAT-AAH! Challenge with her daughter. "I'll try anything to get my daughter to grab a water bottle for lunch instead of a sugar loaded drink box that she normally grabs and shoves in her Hello Kitty lunch box every day."

The Set up...

The WAT-AAH! bottles arrived and I put them in fridge to get cold. After school my daughter immediately has to have a after school snack and a juice box or soda. She opened the fridge and...

B: "Hey! What's this?! Waaaaaaaat- Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Where did this come from?"
Me: (I acted like I had no clue what she was talking about.) "Huh?" I yelled back.
B: "This bottle of Wat-aah or water or the bottle with the crazy faced screaming (I can hear her giggling) kid on it" Is this gonna turn my tongue the color of the writing on the bottle?"
Me: "Gosh If I know" I yelled back.
I think they are warm though I just put them in.
B: OH! Okay.

The Results...

The Next morning she was getting her lunch ready for school. I reminded her like I do every morning, "Don't 4get to grab something to drink." She went to the fridge and looked for a few seconds turning around with a a bottle of WAT-AAH! "I can't wait to see what this taste like." She said, as she shoved it in her lunch box.

B: "MOM! You know that bottle of WAT-AAH! I took to school? Well, all the kids saw me drinking it and they all wanted to know what I was drinking and where you got it and how it tasted. They wouldn't leave me alone. It was so funny, because you know what? They thought you made it! And you know what else? It taste like Water"
Me: They thought I made it? That's silly. Taste like plain water?
B: Really, and ya know what else? I think I felt taller after I drank WAT-AAH! I sure like saying Waaaaaaat-aaah mom. Can I have the green bottle when we get home?"

Well beat that! Wat-aah wins over juice and soda pop!!!

  1. Well that's a neat way to get kids to take water instead of pop. I stopped drinking pop last year and I feel great as well. I hope kids will like it and stay away from sugar-loaded-cans. Good post.
