Here is a laugh for you and a AAAAAWWWWW for today on Laughter Lives Tuesday:
One afternoon after work I went to pick up Mary Beth from school. I was putting her in her carseat when this conversation happened.
Mary Beth: Mommy can I have Ronald McDonald food tonight? (Notice she does not call it McDonald's or Mickey D's like most children)
Me: No baby not tonight we were going home and we were going to cook supper.
Mary Beth: Please can I have Ronald McDonald food?
Me: No we are not having Ronald McDonald food we are going home and cook and you can help me cook.
Mary Beth: Much louder voice: PLEASE CAN I HAVE RONALD McDONALD FOOD?
Me: No baby we can not! Mommy doesn't have the money to go to McDonald's - we will have to go home and cook.
At this point I am closing the back door of the SUV and opening the front door to get in and.....
Mary Beth: Mommy why do you go to work to make money if you don't have any money to get Ronald McDonald food?
Boy did I feel about an inch tall at that moment and yes I went into explain the whole situation to her about paying bills, buying food, shoes, clothes and having a roof over her head.
That is our little funny so now it is your turn. Make someone laugh today!
