And it's back to Burger King

OK, has anyone been to McDonald's and received their new Jungle Book Happy Meal toy? I spent AN HOUR trying to put the thing together. Other parents would look over at me in Spatial Relations Hell (that's level 4 for you Dante lovers out there) and caution their children, "Mommy will TRY to put it together for you, but it seems like it might be a little HARD."

Eventually, I gave up, and let them play with the little Ka snake they gave us. Riley didn't skip a beat - he put it together in a strange new way and then promptly threw his little creation at his sister. Bella threw hers right back and, ALAS! a new fun snake-tree-house-throwing-game was born.

Even so, I think we'll be hitting Burger King from now on, because I'm a retro junkie and I used to hang out in the back of a record store when I was a kid.

But one plus, in the spirit of the crusade to be nice to other mothers, I did make a friend today at McDonald's. I don't know her name, but she couldn't put the damn tree house together either.

Nice to meet you, cute skinny woman in a jogging suit! See you at Burger King!

I feel that we have been living at McDonalds, just so my 2 year old can collect the ponies. I guess its over now. She adores My Little Ponies, especially when she got one free with her Happy Meal.

I'm glad I'm not the only sucker buying Happy Meals for toys - but it keeps them quiet and happy for like, almost two whole hours from start to finish, so it's the best money I spend all week!

The only problem with switching to Burger King is that you'd have to eat Burger King food. Gack! I am glad those creepy cards are gone from Happy Meals though -- I just didn't know what to make of them.
