A few weeks ago, my husband and I took our children out for lunch at "the ham store" (as the munchkins call it), a popular eatery next to his 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 a slice of my humble pie.
I'm (not) Crazy Mommy.
