You're the Best Mom in the Whole........ Town?

While snuggling on the sofa with the Munchkin this weekend she proceeded to tell me how I'm the "Best Mom in the whole town." While that may not seem like a lot it's actually an upgrade from "Best Mom I've ever had," I think.

The rest of the conversation went like this...

Me: The best Mom in the whole town?

Munchkin: Yes, the whole town, that's good

Me: Well what about about the whole world?

Munchkin: Well I haven't been around the whole world, but I've been around the whole town....

Me: Thanks?

Dear McDonalds, You Evil Empire

To Whom it May Concern,

While I don't rank you as high as Wal Mart in my places to loathe list, you're closing in pretty quickly.

You see, I recently gave up eating meat, which means that my children aren't afforded the gracious opportunity to chow down on your odd shaped chicken nuggets and weird meat burgers very often. But because of your evil ways and connections to Disney you continue to be the source for many a meltdown in my household.

With the new movie "Mega Mind" coming out, I'm sure you know that your Happy Meals are being coveted by children all over the United States, including mine.

So in a moment of weakness last week, I caved and my experience has brought on a level of hatred I never new I had. Let me explain.

After what felt likes years of begging for a "Happy Meal with a Mega Mind toy," I surprised my girls with a trip through the drive thru. While waiting in your incredibly long line (yes both lanes were open to insure speedy service) my children had the great pleasure of staring at all of the Mega Mind advertising you have up on your windows and display boards. They saw the ad and knew they were finally going to get their grimey little hands on that toy. I ordered 3! Yes 3, of your nasty ass McNugget happy meals, (can't give to one without giving to all...) we waited, there was more screaming from the backseat and finally about 15 minutes later we finally get our 3 boxes, heavily decorated with more Mega Mind ads. We got home and opened them up to find, cold food, and some lame-o cat toy that has absolutely nothing to do with Mega Mind.

You put me in quite a pickle there McDonalds. Quite the pickle.

So after scraping my children off of the floor from their meltdowns (did I mention the lines were so long it cut into naptime?) I explained that the people there made a mistake (or did they?) and we would try again for these worthless toys one day soon.

So today, I tried a different McDonalds, the line was faster, the food was better and we actually got 3 Mega Mind toys.... too bad only 2 of them work. Thank you.

Yours Truly,

The Incoherent Rambler/hater if all things Evil Empire-ish

Holy Inappropriateness Bat Blog.....

It's been well over a month since I've posted here on the old blog... I blinked and it's November, how did that happen..

A quick recap -

I've been busy, really really busy with our little blog that could. BirminghamMommy.com has taken off and takes up pretty much any bit of free time I had. I'm not complaining. I like it, it's fun and doing it makes me happy.

We took a trip to Vegas -- It was our first trip as a couple without our kids since the Munchkin was 9 months old (she's 5 now) We went with the "Random Family." We did all of the things you're supposed to do in Vegas. Drink, Drank Drunk. We ate some incredible Sushi at Nobu. We gambled, we hung out with Charles Barkley and watched Auburn from the VIP room in the sports book. There was a pro football player there too, used to play for the Jaguars but I can't remember his name. We had an incredible, incredible time.

My Munchkin turned 5 back at the beginning of October. She continues to be as sweet as ever. Some new little girls just started at her school, in her class. They are twins and moved here from across the country. She has made them her best friends, showing them how the school days go and has even offered to let them live with us until their house is ready.

The twins are crazy. They love each other like sisters when they are fighting like sisters. They are officially out of their cribs and are currently sleeping on cushions on the floor because the husband and I can't agree on what types of beds to buy. Just when we are about to order, we second guess ourselves or realize they won't fit... They think the current set up is a playground.

Halloween has come and gone. My decorations are still up.

What's been up with you?
