No More MSG

There's something about chinese restaurants that brings out the "wild" in my family. When I say family, I guess I really mean me. There's the time I flicked the fortune cookie -- like a paper football -- and it hit my daughter right between the eyes. That was the funniest thing I've ever seen. Her head went flying back and the fortune cookie smashed into a million pieces. Don't worry, she was okay.
Then there was the time the bench seat had REALLY springy springs, and my oldest would not stop bouncing. I mean REALLY bouncing. She was gettin' some air! After repeated requests to stop, I shifted in my seat, to bump hip to hip. Well, I happened to catch her on the up-swing ... and she landed on the floor next to the table. Again, we all laughed so hard that we nearly got ourselves kicked out.
Last night we went out for chinese. I came back to the table with a plate of jello, and both my girls giggled. One handed me a straw, and said, "Do it!" while my husband shook his head.
Why is it that kids love the sound of flatulence? Jello-farts are the best.


  1. Great post! We are SO going out for Chinese together soon. And if I ever stop laughing at fart sounds, kill me.

  3. Never tried jello farts, but I'm sure my kids would LOVE them! :o) With my kids it's sushi. It is their favorite and makes them act crazy. Maybe chopsticks bring out the sillies...?

    So glad I found your blog! :o) It's gorgeous!

  4. Thanks Jackee! That makes sense -- it's the chopsticks. As soon as they come out, suddenly my daughter is a drummer.
