To celebrate gotcha day we ventured out to a restaurant as a special treat…a fancy restaurant. The kids had all requested Mcdonalds but mommy quickly vetoed that request. There must be more to life than the golden arches and mommy is sick and tired of eating salads out of plastic bowls that have a plastic cover.
We quickly chose another option. We got there and the kids were coughing, shivering from having been out in the cold, everyone wanted their moose hats put on that very minute and in no time there were five chalkboards scattered across the table to “color on” (with those kinds of stats it meant that in a matter of two minutes the table was covered in chalk.) Every few minutes Sam or I would have to run a child to the bathroom. Not to mention trying to communicate to the kids what their options were and then having them decide on something that they would be happy with. I mean after all the kids meals were SEVEN dollars (we discovered that upon opening the menus!) You ARE going to be happy about what you choose so…choose wisely.
Um, “What is your favorite place that you have EVER been to before?” I said enthusiastically.
That is right about the time that Sam returned. “Hey honey, let’s play a game” (as I nod to him in a way that communicates…just go with it!) How about I tell you a question that I asked the kids and then give you an answer and you have to guess which kid said that. We’ll play the kids against daddy and see who wins.
The final score was kids 5, daddy 10.
What questions would you ask your family while sitting around the table?
