Laughter Lives Tuesday

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!

Visiting from BR blog...

That's cute. When my 5 yr old asks to go out to eat, and I tell him that we don't have the money for that; he proceeds to tell me, "Just use your driver's license"

Yeah...since that IS a way to get money!

What kids say....so innocent :)

My 6yr old son used to tell me to just use my "card" (debit card). He was convinced that meant we had money all the time!
