My Big Fat Double Standard

A few weeks ago, my husband and I took our children out for lunch at "the ham store" (as the munchkins call it) that's right next door to CPod's office. As we were leaving, I advised all three little boys to throw their drinks away because we can't have non-hermetically sealed drink cups inside the car. And then I kept mine.

So, as we were walking to the car, G-Dog looks at my drink cup, looks at me, and says, "Mommy, why do you get to keep your drink but we had to throw ours away?" Now, I admit, I totally asked for what came next when I responded by saying, "Because I'm a hypocrite and I have a double standard."

He didn't miss a beat. "Oh. Can I have a drink of your double standard?"

Um, sure. And also, you can have some of my humble pie.


  1. Thanks for the laughs, Em. Keep 'em coming. It'll be wonderful to keep in touch with your family via the bloggin world, and I hope that you enjoy ours. We're not in the funny stage of life with kids yet (more the sleepless insanity phase) but my Jake is still a doll. Love to you! Lisa

  2. Such a funny story! I'm Destinee Blau (from Asheville Central) we met at the women's conference earlier this year. Anyway, I found your blog through mommyj and look forward to reading! It's such a fun way to connect!
