All last week, Allie had been asking if we could eat dinner out at the same restaurant where we gathered for Uncle Ed's birthday party. Every. Single. Day. We decided to treat the girls to lunch on Saturday. Hey, no complaints from me.
Here and there, Allie had been complaining of a tummy ache. I thought she was just hungry. After she ate her meal, she announced that she felt like she was going to throw up. I told Rich that as soon as I went to the bathroom, I would bring her out to the van to wait for him to pay the bill. The last thing I wanted was for her to puke all over the restaurant. Three minutes later, she was inhaling ice cream.
And just as fine as can be. Notice how she was sitting with Rich. I told him that she could puke all over him.
We aren't big eaters so we ordered a large cheese pizza ($10) and one kid's meal (chicken tenders) for all to share. The girls had ice cream too. We even had leftovers to bring home.
We stopped at Target on our way home for a few items. I was looking for some kind of organic or all natural shampoo for the girls and failed. The store didn't have a great selection to begin with and when the bottle says "99.8% Natural" but the list of ingredients has a whole lot of non-natural items, how do I know that this is really 99.8% natural? Especially when one of these companies was just listed as having an all natural lipstick with a very high level of lead.
I gave up and told Rich I don't know who to believe anymore. Is this all just a media hype? A marketing ploy? Do I pay 5 times as much for shampoo because it is supposed to be free of cancer causing agents? I also said to Rich that it seems like every week, there is some new story of something else that is now found to be cancer causing.
And wouldn't you know that as I was enjoying a Cadbury Creme Egg the very next day, I happened to see that the #1 search on Yahoo was "Is sugar toxic?" I clicked on it and two minutes later, shut it down. I just could not go there.
(I write this not to start a debate but to note what I consider to be a current event. When the girls read this 20+ years from now, I wonder what they will think.)

I love how Anna is mocking Elaine's dance moves (think Seinfeld.)
