The Pickle Story

I can't help it. I've gotta tell it.

Sometime last week or so, I was making the kids peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch. Well, technically I made Owen just a peanut butter sandwich since he refuses to eat jelly, but I digress.

Anyway, they all wanted pickle spears with their sandwiches. And being the loving accommodating mother that I am, I said, "Sure, no prob," and then dished out a spear to each.

All was well. Except then Ashley noticed that Aidan had a bigger pickle spear than she did.

What followed was my favorite conversation ever among my three children. A conversation that I'm sure will be brought up at many inopportune moments in their future, because I am mean like that.

"Mommy, I want the biggest pickle! I love big pickles!" said Ashley. Heh.

Then Aidan said, somewhat braggingly, "I have a big pickle cuz I a big boy." Heh heh.

And then Owen said, very sadly, "I just have a little pickle." Heh heh heh heh heh!

Oh, kids. You make it so easy sometimes.

LMAO! Would it be too awfully mean to project this post at each of their weddings? I kid, of course!

P.S. I'd really love it if you came over and entered my current giveaway for a $10 Mary Kay giftcard and SatinHands gift set. :)

Oh. My God! That is AWESOME! I totally don't blame you for reminding them of this conversation many, many times...although I'm not sure Owen will be too impressed ;-)
