What are chicken nuggets made of?
For dinner we had bratwurst, sauerkraut, and potatoes (a favorite in our house). This led to a discussion about sauerkraut being cabbage...which then led to a series of questions - What is a hamburger made of? (cow), etc. etc. And then Casey asked, "What are chicken nuggets made of?"
Me: Seriously? What do you think they are made of?
At this point, Chris and I died laughing.
Chandler: Duh, Casey, chicken nuggets are made out of chicken.
Casey: Oh, so that's why they're called chicken nuggets.
Chris and I decided to not mention the fact that in our house we actually eat the Morning Star chicken nuggets, which of course, have no chicken in them. :)
I am also attempting to take pictures of all three children every weekend. It is really difficult to get all 3 children to do what you want them to....
I also had a little mishap with the van today. I dropped the girls off at a friend's birthday party and as I was backing down their driveway I realized that their driveway was actually a little bit trickier than I first thought. Towards the bottom of the driveway, I could no longer see the pavement out of the side mirrors. There were also large vehicles parked on either side of the driveway and a huge honeysuckle plant covering the mailbox. So I decided to just back up as straight as I possibly could to avoid hitting anything and making myself look like an ass. So, instead of hitting anything of theirs, I crashed into the mailbox across the street. Yep, backed right into it. So much for not looking like an ass. I jumped out and surveyed the damage. Luckily for the homeowners they have one of those really fancy black iron mailboxes, so it could stand up to a crappy driver in a minivan. Unlucky for me, it was one of those really fancy black iron mailboxes....the back of the van is scratched and slightly dented. :(
