**Don't Forget- Still time for your Ten Things to Smile About post**Are you ready for Proud Mommy Moments? It is your chance to brag about the awesome things your kids did or to share with us those moments that make you so "proud"-i.e. you want to hang your head in shame. Please make sure you grab the button or at the bare minimum link back to myself or my cohost Kmama. And remember, you don't have to be a mother to play along. You can read more details here.
Every Friday we go out to eat- hey, this momma is tired of cooking by the end of the week. Last week we were driving around trying to decide where to go- Eric and I both wanting a step up from fast food. The kids saw Rubio's and voted for that- mostly because every time we have gone they have gotten a balloon. We warned them that on a Friday night we may have to wait. They agreed to be on their best behavior.
We entered the restaurant and were happy to hear there was only a five minute wait. Both kids immediately asked for balloons. "but how are you going to eat with them?" we asked? They assured us they would be able to.
After a few minutes they led us to our booth. Lucas quickly scooted in and so I asked Alex to come sit by me.
"But I want to sit by Daddy." she whined in her normal Alex voice-i.e. loud enough for the surrounding four tables to hear us.
"Alex you sat by Daddy last time, it is Lucas turn." I tried to reason feeling like the black sheep.
"No! I want to sit by Daddy!" She now wailed the redness of my face increasing correspondingly with her volume.
"Alex! Stop now or you do not get to go out to eat next time."
"But I want too!"
"I'll sit by you." Lucas volunteered.
Alex smugly sat down next to Eric.
I thanked Lucas for being a peacemaker and assured Alex that next time she would be sitting by me. As yes, it is such punishment having to sit by mom.
What is your PMM this week?
