Yep, I Did It Again

Friday evening we had dinner over at my MIL's house to celebrate Granny's birthday. Here are some pictures.

While we were there I had to share this story with, well, anyone who would listen, so I will share it with you too.

Hayley is still mispronouncing certain words like "other" is "utter" and "hamburger" is "hambooger" and if you want to know, one of my pet peeves is bad grammar or mispronunciation.

One day I overheard Hayley saying, "No not that one, the utter one!" I quickly had to correct her and I thought if I just put a little explanation with it maybe it will stick.

Me: "Hayley, do you know what an utter is?"

Hayley: "No."

Me:"Ok, an utter is a cow's Beebos."

Hayley: "Ohhhh."

A few days later it was just Hayley and I in the grocery store and she was telling me that she didn't want that kind of cereal she wanted the "utter" one. I quickly shot her a look and proceeded down the isle.

A teenage boy was walking right along side of us as Hayley decides to remind me what exactly an utter was! I knew what was about to come out of her mouth.(And the girl does NOT know how to whisper!) But the boy did not know what she was about to say, so I keep one eye on him just about the time she got the Beebo part. It was soooo funny watching him try not to laugh out loud!

Saturday we met my MIL, SIL, and Granny at Cracker Barrel for lunch. I was really looking forward to going, because I don't think I've been to Cracker Barrel for 2 1/2 years!!! I remember I was ready to deliver Leighton like any second!

Anyways, it was me and the girls about to conquer this assignment, I mean lunch.

Let's just say they had been warned in the car of what could go down in the bathroom if need be.

On a serious note, I have noticed that if I tell them what is going to happen like, 'Hey, we are not going to stay in this store for long, and when I say it's time to go, IT'S TIME TO GO.' And I tell them that as we are standing in front of the doors about to go in so there's no time for them to forget.

Back to Cracker Barrel. We were sitting at the table waiting for our food when Miss Wakeup At 7:00 AM Napless Leighton was doing too much whinning for me and yes we made that trip to the bathroom! As my memory failed me (yet again), I thought the Women's Restroom was to the right aaaannnnndddd apparently it (my memory) was wrong! If you haven't read the story of the first time this happened click here. Yes, I was so heated at the time I failed to look at the sign and we were standing in the Men's Restroom. I DID recognize the urinals this time and quickly motioned for Leighton to exit. She just stood there looking at me like, 'You're not giving me a spanking?' She headed back like she was going to the table. And I said, 'Eint, this way!' motioning towards the Women's Restroom.

We are not making a big deal about this, I know this curse will pass eventually!

I am so thankful that there hasn't been a male in the restroom at the urinal when you walk in! I would hate to be you if you messed up again:o! I know it sounds funny, but you need to be really careful. There are to many loonies out there now.
I loved the story.
Keep a wooden spoon with you ;)!
My two will know what I am talking about-ask Andrea!!!
