Addendum to the mommy-hood thing being better than 1-7 combined...

Took the kids out to eat tonight.
Chris is out of town, so why cook, right?
I debated. After all, Connor was with us. 
Poor kid. I promise I love him. I am simply c-h-a-l-l-e-n-g-e-d by him. 
Went to Smashburger, a local burger place. 
He took 4 minutes deciding what he wants.
No exaggeration - I watched the clock and that's a LOT of time in line when others are behind us.
He decided on chicken strips. Lemonade. Fries.
He bounced all over the booths. 
He didn't WANT any fries when they came.
He wanted WATER - not lemonade!
And the chicken strips were too hot and they didn't come with the RANCH dressing he likes.

I'm so glad I opted to go to dinner with the kids tonight. 
So very, very glad!
