Yesterday after I picked N. up from school, he claimed that he was STARVING and needed a snack before we went to the park. I didn't want to go all the way home, I forgot to bring something along as I usually do, and the baby was sleeping in his car seat. I didn't want to have to wake him up just yet. I told the boys that they could get fast food chicken nuggets and some juice. No fries. So that's what we did. We went through the drive-through and each kid got a 4 pack of chicken nuggets and some orange juice to eat on the way to the park. From the back I hear:

N: "BOO. HOO" (not crying, he said the words "boo. hoo."

Me: "What's wrong?"

N: "So sad"

Me: "?????"

N: "This isn't a happy meal, it's a SAD meal. A very, very, SAD meal. No toy......just some sad, sad, chicken."

LOL. That's hilarious. Kinda makes me wonder if either of my kids would come up with something that clever, but recognition of a happy meal would have to come first, I suppose!

Yes, the fact that my kids are familiar with Happy meals isn't #1 on my "reasons I'm not a crappy mother" list!

Absolutely *no* judgement placed on familiarity with Happy Meals! The sad fact is that if I bought one, the only thing my kids would eat are the fries. Protein? What's that?
