What An Excuse

In Texas, there's a great burger joint called Whataburger. They also happen to serve awesome breakfast taquitos. Currently, Whataburger is airing a commercial for their breakfast taquitos where a guy is so into his bacon, egg and cheese breakfast taco-he's made himself late for work. The Whataburger narrator suggests if you find yourself in this prediciment to purchase several breakfast tacos to take with you to work. "Then, your not the guy who was late, you're the guy who brought breakfast. And everybody loves that guy."
Well, my sister picks my kids up from daycare for me. And I try and rush home from work so she won't have to watch them too long without me. I was running late yesterday due to a FedEx stop and a stalled vehicle on the toll way. I called my sister to see if she needed me to pick up anything. She had forgotten to pick up diapers for her son-so
when I finally arrived at my sister's house, I wasn't the mom who was late, I was the mom who brought diapers!
(Next time you're running late -think of something to bring your babysitter!)

Kelley, just started reading your blog and I love it! Oh, the adventures of mommies and the tales we have to tell!

Great idea if you're running late! Gotta keep that one in mind next time Baby Dear decides to fill up her diaper with nastiness when we're half out the door.

When I visit we need to go to Sonic. I want one of those lime drink thingys you've mentioned!
