1. On Saturday the kids and I went to Chick-fil-a. When we got done eating, we went to the play area per usual. While we were playing, The Most Annoying Child Of All Time came in, without an adult (pet peeve). Ya'll, I've been around a lot of kids in my day and I feel quite comfortable giving him this title. I'll spare you all the details but he was the most ill behaved, bratty, whiny kid I have ever seen in my life (and this is after 15 years of babysitting, countless practicums, student teaching and teaching)(also: Dear Friends who I hang out with on a regular basis: Thank for not having a child like this or we would have to stop being friends. Love, Me). The kid hit and pushed my kid as well as other kids in there. He knocked my baby over. He was loud. He was being extremely bossy to my son. And of course his grandparents were just sitting in the restaurant eating. So what do you do in that situation? Leave? Tell the kid to get a life? Try to wait him out? We did the later. He finally left (after kicking his grandma) and the play area was nice and calm.
2. While we were at Chick-fil-a, after The Most Annoying Child Of All Time left, Cason played with two little boys. I talked to their mom for a long time. She was really nice. Her boys were very close together in age. Cason is right between their ages. The boys all had the best time playing together. And they were sweet and energetic. So here's my question: Would it have been weird for me to ask the other mom if we could get the boys together again for them to play? I'm thinking yes, but I don't know. I'm secretly hoping to run into them again. No I'm not, because then it would be all weird and like, "Hey do you remember us from that time at Chick-fil-a?" I guess the moment has passed.
3. The other day, I was stuffing a diaper into the diaper genie. A smell came out that should not be smelled by humans ever again. I almost passed out, after I got done gagging. This is not a debatable topic, I just felt like sharing.
4. I am cooking three things in my crockpot this week. I only have two crockpot liners left. I'm making these chicken nuggets for Cason (he'll eat anything in 'nugget' form), I'm making chicken tacos and the best Hawaiian chicken known to mankind (chicken much?). So I'm thinking I'll use my two liners for the tacos and the Hawaiian chicken. Thoughts?
