tell me im not alone...

Saturday, April 24, 2010 |
yesterday i was running around with nate and it was lunch time. usually i throw a few granola bars in the back seat and let him play 'treasure hunt' in the back seat while i drive over to hobby lobby for some shopping.
but yesterday, but yesterday...i felt nice.

me: natey-how about a happy meal?
nate: really?
me: yes-chicken nuggets or cheeseburger?
nate: mom, can we go inside so i can play at the playland?
me: no, not today.
nate: it is because of the swine flu, huh?
me: that's right! darn swine flu! (and i actually made a fist and shook it in mock-anger)

so today when i was tell the story to  chris, he was a little upset that i would blame the swine flu and not the fact that i HATE playlands.
he actually said that that is something my mom would say.
(yes we are still married. but surely headed for counciling)

so i need to have some back up from you out there. what do you think?
***remember last spring, the swine flu hit really hard. how do we know it isnt going to happen again? (chris didnt go for that argument)***

did i tell you that i really, really hate playlands?

I almost never let my kids go in. when they ask why I tell them the truth. Because I'm the meanest mom ever.

play lands are EVIL!!! I hate them with a passion. I just tell Jacob that kids pee in them and I'm off the hook. Tell Chris he's nuts. Swine flu could be lurking somewhere.

Hahaha! I don't like playlands either, unless it's naptime and I'm enjoying being on the outside of the glass with some of my girlfriends. Chick-fil-a is the best as far as play areas go!
