Dad Would Be Proud

Posted on December 30, 2008. Filed under: Mommy Moments, The Parenting Thing |

So I’m a terrible Mom and because I was getting home late last night decided to drive my kids through McDonalds.  Understand – I have terrible cognitive dissonance when it comes to McDonalds.  I personally hate it …. think it’s disgusting … can’t stand the greasy fry smell that comes out of the place.  But… the kids love it and will eat it and they are happy.  So – last night we were off to McDonalds because I needed happy kids. 

On the way ChickenFried says “Mom – can I get a Big Mac?”  Remember — the child is only 6 (and a half).  I tell him yes, but he won’t get a toy.  “Well, do they have a cheeseburger with three patties where I would get a toy?”  I busted out laughing.  Three patties.  First of all the fact that he said patties was hilarious, but then to ask for three of them.  Seriously — where do kids put this stuff?  I’ve reached the age where just looking at it (or smelling it) adds a pound. 

To end the story, he decided on a quarter pounder with cheese — and no toy.  And yes, he ate it all.
