Just a couple stories that had to be shared:
1) The other day, we went to eat a Fazoli's restaurant. While waiting in line to order our food, the girls were getting pretty restless. My efforts to calm them were useless as they started "tagging" each other. A frail old man, bent over and walking slowly, walked in the restaurant. Before I could stop her, Meghan ran up to him laughing, and said "TAG!" and pushed him as hard as she could. The poor guy stumbled back but luckily maintained his balance. I was horrified that my daughter almost knocked him over! I apologized, and thankfully, he was good natured about it. Then, once we got our food, the girls were more interested in using their breadsticks as swords than eating them.
Things like this make me question why we bother going out. I think the purpose is so I won't have to cook for a change- but sometimes going out is just as exhausting as cooking!
2) This morning for breakfast, Ellie chose Honeycomb cereal. She finished her bowl and wanted more, so she said:
"More flower Cheerios, please?" Ha! I will never look at Honeycomb the same again!
