"A Taco... and some Diet Coke!"

Yesterday, I was stir crazy. It's rather hilarious that I used to leave our home every day and now I can go almost a week (most of the time) before I have that itch to leave.

I had.. um.. volunteered Brandon to help move furniture back to the children's wing so if I was going to go out, I was going to have to take all four, by myself.

This task was much easier before the boys turned into willful toddlers. So I try to avoid it. But I couldn't help myself yesterday.

I took the children to Target to pick up a few things. I had a short list and plenty of time. In general this is the best formula.

Xander turned into a comedian as we were checking out. First, he apparently was traumatized that I had to remove the shower curtain from his death grip to put it on the conveyor belt so I could pay for it and not make headlines in our TinyTown.

"Pregnant mom of four shoplifts shower curtain, blames son!" I could just see it.

Then he decided to make faces at the lady behind us. Luckily, she was not offended at him sticking his tongue out at her. *phew* I even apologized profusely!

And then he decided to announce to the world that he would like "A taco and diet coke."

Yup, you read that right. My 2 year old would like a taco and diet coke.

I asked him if we should try to convince Daddy to go to Chick Fil A. But no, only a taco and diet coke would do.

Where does he come up with these things?

I told Brandon the story when we picked him up from the church and he thought I was totally joking.

Until he heard the voice in the backseat say. "Goggy! (Daddy!) I wanna eat a taco and diet coke!" Plain as day.

So we did it. We went to Moe's so he could have a taco. (He really had a burrito but I'm not getting technical with my 2 year old.) And yes, I did let him splurge and have a diet coke. (I'll probably get comments about how bad diet coke is for anyone much less a growing child, blah, blah, blah... I'm all about picking my battles.)

Apparently the Diet Coke hit the spot?

And this was what he thought of his meal:

That is two thumbs up for those of you not in the know. :)

Nothing better!


PS: I've had a few people ask about the lack of belly pics. With each pregnancy I show faster and faster... Be kind!

Isaiah 18 weeks!

Steph, your belly is adorable! You should see mine, I will have to take a picture and post it on my blog. I kind of avoid that! I think a taco and diet coke (actually I love Coke zero)sounds a bit heavenly right now. And our first couple kids never ever had soda, now the toddlers get sprite in the sippy cup on Pizza night because, they want to be just like the rest of the "big kids". Yep, I put sprite in the sippy cups. Bad mommy. :)
