The scene: in the car with Daughter-Only and my two youngest nieces (ages 6 & 9--damn does time fly or what?!). It's been a busy afternoon and I decide to take advantage of the McDonald's Dollar Menu to feed not only the three in the backseat but the five at home (including Hubby and Baby Brother). Wanting to skip any unnecessary whining, I warn them as we pull up to the drive-thru that I'm just getting double cheeseburgers for everyone.
Youngest Niece: But I want a Happy Meal.
Masked Mom: Well, we're not getting Happy Meals today so you're just gonna have to be happy with the meal you get.
So much for my reputation as the "nice aunt."
