Question of the Day


I went on an outing today with the kids--to a thrift store in search of an exersaucer. Found one for $5 (which is way better than $119 like I saw at Babies R Us, are you kidding me? Who can spend that kind of money on something that will only be used for 4 months?!).  I was so proud of myself venturing into the world like that with 3 babies! Some old lady even felt sorry for me so she chased after me into the parking lot and gave me 2 cabbage patch dolls and a leopard. I should go out more often! Do you think if I went somewhere fancier then I might get more expensive offerings in the parking lot? ("Here lady! I saw all your kids and wondered if you wanted this Versace gown?")

Now, the question:

Maggie fell asleep in the car with her half eaten Sonic corn dog in her hand. So, I ate it. When she wakes up is she going to remember the corn dog? Am I going to be in big toddler trouble?

I'm nervous.

Hilarious, corn dog, I mean. I've done this several times and I always get caught. I think you should be nervous.

My kids would remember, and I would be in BIG trouble. :)

Wow, good question. Sometimes Max remembers and sometimes he doesn't. Usually when he does it's many hours later, or even a day or so. And it's tragic. But I would've done it too.
Let us know what happens to you....

If you ate my corndog, I'd be mad.

Did that old lady really give you that stuff? That is amazing. Was it new? Used? That is really cool! I should start handing out toys to overworked moms.

Just the other day I was over to the Nordstrom's when a lady came running out after me.
"Madam, I couldn't help but notice your three children. Might I offer you this china teapot, this crystal vase [pronounced vahz], and this distinctive elderberry-infused goat cheese?"
Needless to say---I took them!

Yes, you have a good reason to be nervous. But, I would've done the same thing. In fact, the minute your blog came up and I saw the picture, my mouth began watering and I could smell and taste the corn dog. As soon as I read that you'd already eaten it, I flew into a mini rage. I can only imagine what she will do to ya.

That's awesome that lady gave you stuff. I love it! You SHOULD BE very proud of yourself for venturing out.

I always eat my kids' stuff, and I'm dumb enough that it doesn't occur to me that they might remember, so sometimes I get in trouble. Best o' luck to ya!

I love thrift stores! That is so funny that that lady chased after you. I always finish off Mason's food...probably one of the many reasons I still have a lot of baby weight to lose! Sure do love ya!

Okay. So Lorri and Cam went to Las Vegas on a job? And they kept getting all this free stuff because Scooter is just SO DARN CUTE. They went to causally check out a hockey expo that costs big bucks and doesn't let in anybody under 18 (so our hockey loving nephew didn't even bother to go down there with his brother, who was doing video there), and when they got to the door, the guy at the door said, "Cool baby. Want to go in?" And Lorri said "We can't afford to get tickets." The guy looked at them in disgust and said, "You've got the coolest baby ever. You want to go in or not?"

So they went in. Good thing Scooter's hair stands straight up.
