FF - Kiddie Crack

If you're visiting me from Follow Friday, welcome to my piece of the net.

Yet again, it's been a crazy week. I tried getting stuff done around the house, and I was somewhat successful, but it's been so hot! A gradual warm-up would have been nice, but we jumped straight to 90 degree weather. I guess that's what I get. Last Fall all I wanted was 1 good winter with a decent snow. I didn't mean 3+ feet from 2 storms only days apart, but that's what we got. All winter I said we better have a hot summer so we can swim all the time. Well, it's been hot and the pools aren't even open yet!

The kids and I pick the husband up from work everyday. I've learned with this heat that it is better for my everyone's sanity if we just turn the AC on in the car. Yesterday I'm glad I did. I learned a valuable lesson and that was it is not wise to take fruit roll-ups for a snack in the car when it's 90 degrees outside.

I tried to avoid looking at other drivers around me but I'm sure they were giving me all kinds of crazy looks. I assume this because I'm sure I looked like a fool holding a fruit roll-up in front of the vent, on full blast mind you. I was trying to harden the stupid snack so I could peel the paper off! Good thing GG pointed out the melt factor early and told Little Dude to have me help him. I reached behind me to grab his snack to discover he already took a bite of his still rolled fruit roll-up. I'm not positive but I think he ate some of the paper. Oops!

While I was holding the roll-ups in front of the AC like an ass, the kids were able to keep themselves occupied with their kiddie crack.

I don't know what is in this stuff but I can't think of any kid in this area that can't get within 100 feet of the convenient store without getting the shakes. They ne-e-e-ed their Bug Juice! I finally got smart and starting saving a few bottles to refill with the less sugary crack-less juice I make at home. Just not this day. It was too damn hot to argue with the boy over juice.

I have a few other stories from the week. There's the one where Little Dude's soccer coach thought he wanted a Dago. Or the one about our truck that we just got rid of. That one's bittersweet.

But I know there's other blogs on Friday. So get reading, get linked, and get to mingling.

Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time....

Stopped by via Friday Follow! I had to laugh at your fruit roll up/AC vent story... I tried to do that with a Dairy Queen ice cream once with very little success!

Kmama said...

Ooh, i've seen that bug juice before, but never bought it. Thankfully my kids are more milk and water drinkers.

My kid LOVES the Bug Juice. I only buy it when I need to by a few minutes of silence because he doesn't come up for air until it is gone.

Nice to meet you.

I have also used the AC to cool too hot chicken nuggets. Or, if that didn't work, I held the too hot nugget out the sunroof. So, you are not alone in you craziness. Happy SITS Saturday.

I have to have the AC on in the car or the kids drive me insane. But that Bug Juice..oh no I can't do that. Jason goes bonkers.

Thanks for flying with us on the new Friday Follow. I've been following you for a while though.
