What, you were expecting Santa??!?!



My 4yr old had a doctor's appointment recently. We were at a specialist that he'd never met before, so the doctor was trying to make smalltalk.

DOCTOR: "How was your Thanksgiving?"

JAKESTER: "Good."

DOCTOR: "Did you eat lots of turkey?"

JAKESTER: "Mmhmm."

DOCTOR: "Do you know what's coming up?"

JAKESTER: shrugged

DOCTOR: "You don't know?! Who's the big guy coming to your house dressed in a red suit?"

JAKESTER: "Ummmmmmm...a lobster?"

(In his defense, he did have lobster on Thanksgiving...so maybe that's where that came from LOL)

We were 2 hours from home for the appointment, so we decided to make it a Mom & Jakester day.

He requested lunch at "Friendly-Fire." HUH?! Took me a minute to figure out Friendly's.

Then my sweet little innocent baby boy told our waitress that she talks like Lois from "Family Guy." Ummm, yeah...I don't think the older boys are watching Nickelodeon before bed anymore...naughties.

A couple weeks later, I had his first Parent/Teacher Conference. The teachers showed me a poster that they made the previous morning during circle time, in which they asked each child, "What makes you happy?" and wrote their replies on the poster.

Jakester's reply: Going to lunch at Friendly-Fire with my mom, she had buffalo chicken salad and I had chocolate milk.

(DISCLAIMER: He had hotdogs and macaroni, too, but I'm thinking chocolate milk was the highlight.)

Funny blogs! Lobsters! LOL. We used to have Friendly's in MI, but alas, they went under.

Haha!

My kids have watched Family Guy a few times. Oops.

And Tommy had to draw some things that meant a lot to him and he drew Target and Wal-Mart. Since we're there like every week.
