Happy Meals = Happy Kids

I don't give my kids fast food very often. Here are my reasons:

  1. Cost
  2. The unhealthiness of it
  3. They don't eat the food, they just want the toy
Now, I will say that if we had a Chick-Fil-A, it would be a totally different story. But when my choices are McDonalds, Burger King and Wendy's, we just don't go much. WHen my mom was visiting in early October, she bought Happy Meals for the kids, but that was the last time the kids had fast food. (Am I mean or just crazy?)

Until today...

We went with Stacy and Emma to deliver Meals on Wheels and Stacy treated the kids to Happy Meals. The kids were so good. They ate their food, they were very content while we drove around town delivering meals.

Its was great. Thanks Stacy.

You're not mean OR crazy! I feel exactly the same way about Happy Meals! You're a very good mom to keep that kind of food to a minimum. Oh, and I hear you about Chick-Fil-A! I so wish they would come to Canada!

You definitely need a Chick-Fil-A there. Give Mr. Cathy a call and ask him if you could buy one for Bismarck. We all know it will do good, guaranteed. Right? It could even be a Dwarf. Eat more chickin!
