Something for the kids

Thanks to Lisa W for emailing me the link to this news story. Personally I prefer to just make my kids walk around the back yard carrying bricks 🙂 Save money and get in shape at the same time.

I’m sure it is a good idea and all, but I just can’t shake the notion that it is more of a parenting issue than anything else. The family was all in the car sometime this week, and I was making some smart-assed comment about mommy (any mommy) buying her kids three Big Macs, or whatever the fuck they want, instead of limiting them to what they actually need. I don’t feel that junk food is particularly bad for you, in moderation at least. So my wife chimes in, “Hey, how about a fat sandwich”. My three year old decided then and there that she WANTED a “Fat Sandwich”. Now I will never be able to go through the damned drive-through without first considering if I just want to order one.

  1. I knew you’d get a kick out of that article. Tell me something, why is it that I tell your site EVERYDAY to ‘Remember personal info’, it doesn’t?
    I have to retype it everyday. Argh.

  2. I have the same problem. Something to do with the cookies, but I am not quite sure what. I may eventually send an email to support with my host (livingdot) and see if they can tell me something.

    Right now I am trying to deal with the mess I have made of my spam catcher. It is denying everyone’s comments including my own, so I have been going back in and having to ok them, which is even more of a pain in the ass than what was happening before.

  3. Straight white casa? Not sure what you’re referring to, but sounds like you’ve got a fun wkend planned with friends, adult beverages etc.
    Doing a little blog walking this am, I’ll join friends for adult beverages a little later on. So…here’s to ya (tips glass)
