A Couple of Gals Out on the Town

I hope you can forgive me for my lack of posting the past couple of days.  I was still pretending to not be sick.  I was trying to pretend real hard. I even thought about asking my princess Kate to throw fairy dust my way, hoping to make my dream of being able to breathe like a normal person come true.  I decided that asking her would be silly.  I mean, she is a princess.  A princess doesn't have fairy dust.  Unless of course she is a fairy princess...hmmmm I wonder?

Okay, that is enough of the cold meds. talking, time for me to take over this post again.

Every week Rodi and I take one of the kids out on a date.  Tonight was lil' miss Kate's night out.  Rodi wasn't going to be able to make it out with us tonight, so after her dance class Kate and I headed straight over to Wal-Mart.  Just what you think of when you think of a mommy-daughter date isn't it?  Kate likes to take us shopping for her date night, thankfully there is a $5 limit.  Basically Rodi and I usually get ice cream with one of the kids each week.  Do you see the brilliance in our plan?  Kate and Koen like to see just how far they can stretch their $5.  Two weeks ago Koen came home with some serious loot for his $5.  It was actually pretty impressive.  Tonight Kate found two card games that were on clearance.  One was $2 the other was $3.  I decided to throw in the tax.  This girl of ours loves games, especially ones that involve the whole family gathering around the table and playing together.  She can't seem to get enough when it comes to family time.  I foresee many hours of Crazy 8's in my future.

As we were leaving my cold attacked me, like hit on the head with a hammer, attacked me.  My decision to cough was a terrible choice.  My throat was so sore, my head pounding, no relief in sight.  Then, I saw it....
 And guess what they serve?
She sort of got a bonus on our date tonight.  But it was all to make her sweet mommy's throat feel better. That is our story and we are sticking to it!
Oh and the lil' bugger saw the picture of the old school McD's on the wall and asked me "So is that really what McDonald's looked like when you were a kid?"  
Sweet isn't she?
I nicely replied "No" and then cringed at the thought of how old she must think her mother really is.  Did she see the gray hair I found the other day?  I pulled it out rather quickly, I didn't think anyone else had seen it.
She made up for it as we walked through the parking lot back to the van.  We were strolling along savoring the yumminess of our ice cream when she looks up at me and said, "This is really good.  Funny it doesn't taste like vanilla though, it sorta tastes like peacock"
OH I thought I was gonna need some depends right there in the parking lot!  I am old ya know.  She could not figure out why I was laughing so hard.  
I asked her "peacock?"
to which she replied "yeah, peacock, like those cupcakes we made"  
 "Oh, yeah I remember the peacock cupcakes" I said with a smile.  "I think I usually call them pecan cupcakes though."
Her only reply was a smile. 
I love these kids of mine, they make me giggle.
