Funny Story #1
Funny Story #2
Spencer and I had a play date at my friend Danielle's house. Danielle has 4 kids- Allison is 9, John is 7, Lizzie is 4 and David is 2. We were sitting on the couch while David and Spencer played with books and trucks. Allison came in and asked her mom if they had any crackers. We both assumed she was just looking for a snack. She disappeared for a few minutes and then proudly appeared from the kitchen holding a plastic cutting board. She put it down on the coffee table and said "would anyone like some cheese and crackers?" 9 years old! The perfect hostess. Danielle and I just cracked up. We were already drinking wine (how great is a play date that includes wine for the mommies?!) so a cheese and cracker platter was perfect. So cute.Funny Story #3
After the playdate we met Michael at Target for some quick shopping and then went to IHOP for dinner. We waited for 15 minutes before I got up and told an employee that no one had been over to wait on us. He went to find our waitress, then came over, apologized, said there had been a mix-up and she would be there in a second. We waited 5 more minutes then left. I saw the manager outside smoking when we left. I think a strongly worded letter to IHOP corporate offices is in order.
So anyway, we ended up at Macaroni Grill. We sat outside, which was perfect, because no one else was out there and Spencer was able to run around and be goofy. When our waitress brought our food over and started putting it down, Spencer yelled "cheese!" just as she took out the parmesan grater. It was perfectly timed. As I write this, it's not very funny, but as it happened it was hilarious. My boy loves himself some cheese.
