At first glance you will see an almost-full baby bottle in the photo below. Now look closer. What do you see in the background? Yes, that would be an empty margarita glass. Do the math.
NO, I did NOT give the margarita to LadyP! Nor did she watch me as I shamelessly did it. I pulled this wild and wacky stunt just for my Hubby. All he wanted to do was take his little family out to an early dinner of Mexican food and drinks. Chips and salsa? Check. Margaritas? Check. Refried beans? Check. (NOTE TO THOSE WHO CARE: LadyP’s new fave food is refried beans… with guacamole.)
Screaming one year old who refused to sit in high chair and/or on anyone’s lap after she was done eating and we were still trying to enjoy/finish our dinners? CHECK.
Salsa and screaming babies don’t mix. She wouldn’t sit. She wouldn’t stand. She wouldn’t even look and play with her Dora-the-Explorer plastic placement that I brought to specifically keep her entertained. (Maybe she was jealous of our margaritas?) Hubby and I traded off taking her outside so we could each devour the rest of our delicious meals. On the third shift, it was up to me to give the server our credit card and gather our things for a swift exit. After paying, I took one look at Hubby’s full margarita glass and felt a pang of pity. Poor guy can’t even finish one margarita. He works hard. He deserves at least that. Without a second thought, I took LadyP’s empty bottle outta the diaper bag and dumped the rest of the frothy lime libation into it. (I’m pretty sure the server saw me, but whatever.)
Out to the car I dashed (with Hubby and LadyP already buckled up inside), and proudly revealed the smuggled margarita with a big smile on my face when we arrived at home. With a brief scolding, a huge eye-roll and a laugh Hubby downed it… and said ‘thanks babe.’
WHAT FABULOUSLY-WACKY STUNTS HAVE YOU PULLED FOR YOUR BETTER HALF?
