fast food & fast walls


Carter & I had a date at Wendy's. But before anyone gets huffy puffy - technically, I didn't feed him fast food. He wouldn't bite into anything, he just used the food as a tool to suck dollups of ketchup. And really, I don't care if he does eat fast food, because one french fry would be more calories than he gets in an entire week of meals. I'm exaggerating. But he does starve himself and hold out for the good stuff.

Good stuff, as in, ketchup.

The walls inside our house are up! My brother came with us today, so Carter was showing off, running as fast as he could back and forth across the rooms.

This is a little out of character for my blog, but I think I'd appreciate hearing it, so I'm just going to write & not think ... if you have a Harris Teeter around you, they're doing Super Double Coupons this week! They'll double any coupon for $1.98 or less until 6/26! Tomorrow I'm getting my binder out to organize a trip.

  1. OMG that's so funny that you say Carter decided to just use the fries to eat the ketchup from them instead! Jacob does the same exzact thing! he'd rather eat the ketchup off his fry over and over until the fry is soggy. EW! Don't ever feel bad for letting him eat fast food once in a great while, it's not like your feeding it to him all day long everyday. Everything in moderation is okay. P.s. your house is comign along super fast! i'm so excited for you guys! that's awesome! and the photos are all amazing!

    My son is just like Carter; he is a very Picky eater and I'm not sure how he thrives on how little he eats. The one thing he will eat; however, is a happy meal. So no judging here :0) sometimes ANYTHING is better than eating nothing. Carter looks so proud in his new house! It's coming along nicely

  4. High five for double coupons! None of our grocery stores around here do that, so I can understand your excitement!

  5. ooooo I didn't know that about Harris Teeter. Where do you find out about specials like that?? I need to start getting more coupon saavy!! I love the look of your home as it comes together. I'm excited for you!!! And as for fast food. SOOOOO don't feel bad. WE all take our kids to fast food from time to time and it is a fun outing and experience for all of us. Daisy loves to stab things with her fork too and we especially love sharing fries and chicken nuggets. Gotta live a little right;0. Good for you momma!

  8. My Carter loves chicken nuggets and if they're "fast food" he gobbles them up even faster. Sometimes you just have to give in to get a toddler to eat anything! If he even sees a french fry...oh my, lunch is just over. He is obsessed. I blame that on his grandparents though ;) Your house is coming along SO fast! I'm sure you guys are thrilled to move in.

  9. Your Carter is so beautiful. His big blues make Wendy's food look whimsical!

    A side note, but I absolutely hate when music instantly starts on a blog. Except yours. I love yours :)

  10. @KellyThought it was cute when I looked up and saw another comment that started with "My Carter...". The name isn't too common for me until I am online. We should start a club.

  13. @Casey Martinez i went to get milk for the fifty trillionth time this week & saw it advertised in the store.

  14. @Christy / Thrifty Vintage Kitten i am excited! i think it ends tonight or tomorrow & i still haven't organized my trip. they usually double coupons that are 99 cents or less, which is kinda silly anyway because they're one of those stores with the higher prices.

  15. @Andbabymakesusthree i think anything is better than nothing too - at least there's some protein & a little substance to it, carter's always working on an "all milk" fad diet.
