Because you said, "No child of mine will ever eat at McDonald's!" long before you actually became a father, I present to you now...your niece & the following:
Caroline: I wan chicken nuggets, pease!
Me: OK...it's sleeting and we had to brave the post office. You can have nuggets!
The Happy Meal is handed over and we drive away. Two miles from home:
Caroline: Yea! Chicken nuggets!
Yea! Cha-cate milk!
Good Job, Mommy!
Me: Precious. Yea, Caroline! I love you! Now you gotta say all of this to Uncle Robbie because you know how he feels about McDonald's!
Caroline: Unca Robbie...yea! I go see Li-zuh! Li-zuh has chicken nuggets!
Lizee, baby--you're getting a Happy Meal next time we see you--with love from Aunt Lula & cousin Linus!
