-"Extraordinary" by Liz Phair
Some days I think I should be committed ... or one of my children should be :) Listen to this craziness: When Jeff came home Monday night Davis asked if we could go get ice cream for FHE. I thought we were being super nice parents by saying that we could go get ice cream at McDonald's (because sundaes are only $1) and we agreed to let them play for a few minutes in the playplace too.
side note: I really dislike McDonald's, so this is me being SUPER nice telling them we can go. And then while we were there they rubbed me the wrong way so we won't going back anytime soon. 1st straw: they charged me $1 for a water cup! last straw: the sign for the play place says parents CAN go inside but when Jeff was in there with Grayson the manager came out and very flippantly motioned for Jeff to get out. He politely said that the sign says adults too and she just laughed and told him in a heavy accent "Too big." Manners people!
Well, the kids seemed to be having a good time, we let them play for awhile and then it was time to go. Nobody complained about leaving but when we got in the van Davis started whining "I didn't want to go there for ice cream! I didn't want this kind! I wanted sherbert!" What!?! Crazy kid! And Davis, for future reference, it's hard to be convincing when you've already eaten the ice cream you supposedly dispise :)
