Thursday Therapy: Sippin'

My kids watch me like a hawk. Yes, like a bird watches it's prey. Waiting... waiting for the moment I will look away. The moment of complete opportunity. You know, those opportunities that come once in a life time. The kind of moments that allow you to hide in the dollar store, or steal a piece of candy... the kind of moments where you can sip somebody's beer.

BEER? 

Yep. That is what Jesse did today. Some lovely person left their can of something or other that contained alcohol open outside the zoo. My lovely little Messy Jesse found it and had himself a little sip before I could get over there and take it away.

The best part was that he spilt it on himself and so he smells of a late night party. Well, now I can officially say that my one year old has had more to drink then I have had my whole life :).

What a moment.

Oh. My. Goodness. That is too funny. Hopefully he won't have to have a breathalyzer test! ;)

Hopefully he thought it tasted bad (It MUST, right, because it sure smells AWFUL), and it cured him from ever drinking out of a can again. Maybe it's a blessing! We can hope....

Now when he is a teenager, you can say "Sorry bud, you already went through your 'come in the house smelling like beer' phase.You can't regress!"

It could really work to your advantage...

Oh my gosh! Were you dying? That is so crazy and so annoying that someone would just leave that lying around!

Little did you know there was probably a cigarette butt in there too so he most likely broke the Word of Wisdom twice in one sip. Ha ha! How funny/horrifying is that? The best part is that you were brave enough to share the story! You're the best!! I'm so sorry for your dollar store scare. Yikes! Treasure these memories... if it's possible! You're such an awesome mom - keep it up. And to clarify... you WERE a whiner when you were very little but you are not currently a whiner. You're a gem!
