It's Broken Mommy!
I have to admit, we've been guilty lately of taking LB to the golden arches. Yes the evil empire that is known as McDonald's. He loves it. He'll eat and eat and eat there. His favorites are the chicken nuggets, fries, and the apples. He washes them down with the 1% white milk. It got to the point, when we would drive by, he would yell.. "I go eat! I go eat!" No sweetheart, not tonight. With that I would get such a blood curdling scream, for the rest of the drive home. And people wonder why I like to drink? Anyhow, on our drive down to Charleston on Christmas morning, Mike had yet to have breakfast when we got ourselves on the road. We figured, we'd stop at McD's. It was closed. CLOSED! My two year old looked at those golden arches and screamed, "I eat! I eat! I eat!" We tried another location. CLOSED! Well, shit! What to do, with a screaming kid. We told him that it was broken. Sorry Honey Bunny, it is broken. We can't eat there today. Well, it worked. To this day, when we drive by, he says, "Mommy, Donald's broken, no go eat." I smile and say, yes baby boy, it is broken. I wonder how long we can keep up that rouse????
