Mother's Milk

No one loves his "coke" as much as Buster:



I know I am the only mom on the planet ordering her two-year-old a Diet Coke with his happy meal:



I also know how trashy it looks to have my baby enjoying a cold one as we shop Walmart. 



But sometimes you gotta give em' what they want...and in this case, it is a cold DC.  If he only turns out to be about 5'1, we will know why.

He is so dang cute and soft-looking. I let my kids drink a lot out of my big DCs but I have never stooped so low as to buy them their own. But Benny is on soy milk (estrogen) and apple juice--so he will have boobs and no teeth by the time he's 12. Perhaps I should switch him to the acid.

Did you mention that his first word was "COKE!!" If it makes you feel better, I used to put Diet Coke in Cam's BOTTLE when we were out & I ran out of milk or formula or apple juice. (I also tried to put instant breakfast in his bottle one morning when I didn't have time to feed him. . .but it was too thick and clogged up the nipple.) You do a lot of things on your 4th baby that you would NEVER dream of doing w/ the first. BTW, Cam is 6'1.

Oh my word, I love all three of you! You, Ashley, and your mom! I am laughing so hard right now.

We aren't big soda drinkers, so Mita's biggest demands are "canny! gubby bears! petzels!" That's all I hear all day. I could easily do a companion post with Mita and gummi bears. Mita can join your shorty, toothless crowd once they all meet up again.

And those pictures of Buster are ADORABLE.

When we used to ask my two-year-old daughter in the mornings what she dreamed about the night before, her answer for about a year was ALWAYS, "diet coke."

And she is in the 90th percentile for height, so I think Buster'll be all right. I'd way rather they have diet coke than sprite. Chemicals and caffeine are always better than sugar, right? :-)

Confession: Henry calls all soda "Co Co" because DC is about all we drink around here. I'm convinced it keeps him healthy--black acid is sure to cure whatever ails:-)

Hilarious!

Bill's sister spent yesterday telling me the wonders of quitting Diet Coke and how great she feels without it. She's obviously lying. I was really glad to read your post and realize my family is still sane.

I'm laughing at Linda's comment because I still tell the story of being at your house and hearing Cam ask for "juice" and seeing your mom put diet coke in his bottle! How ingenious! It LOOKED like juice, she looked like a great mom and everyone was happy!!

Linde said...

So funny! Did he just try your's one day and like it? Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do!

This blog post has been completely hijacked by Ashley and her portrayal of the future Benny--toothless and saddled with boobs.

She wins.

It all ok because we know you only eat take away once a year ... the rest of the time Buster is chowing down on organic, homemade, vegan eco friendly meals.It all equals out.
