It's funny when your kid starts recognizing things that aren't in his or her life everyday. I mean of course he recognizes who he sees everyday and such but I mean like when you're driving down the street and you see this:

And suddenly your kid gets a hankerin' for french fries (or apple dippers if you are so inclined). I guess in a way it's a good thing. It means people like my friend, Jess are doing their job.
But on the other hand, when you are in the grocery store line and your child recognizes this label:

It suddenly becomes a battle of wills. The boy started recognizing M&M's about a month ago and a few weeks ago he realized that they are in the check out lane. And do you know how much fun it is to be in the check out lane with a toddler grabbing 7638292929746 packages of M&M's? Well do you? And the more I say no, the more the boy wants them. Honestly, I don't know where he gets it from.

Do you find it as odd as I do that the boy recognizes MickeyD's and M&M's? Oh, and all Coke products. You would think we weren't being healthy at our house. I'm sure he's spoiled by all his grandparents....or something like that.

On a side note: My brother told me that one day they were talking about McDonalds and my sister in law's four year old nephew looked up out of nowhere and said,"Ba-Da-Ba-Ba-Ba, I'm lovin' it!" Thank you, it's not just us.

Corban sees a trail mix bag and shouts "M&M, I need M&M", so I am totally busted for digging out the M&M's by my little copy cat!

It was bad enough for us that for a while every time I went through a drive through sophy would start saying "finch fy?" over and over again begging me for French fries. I mean ANY drive through...including the bank. try explaining to a teller that you really don't go out to eat often.
