Parkerisms - Pink Milk

Parker: "Mom can I have some pink milk."
Me: "Sure."
Parker: pointing to the straw in the cup on the bottle of Hershey's Strawberry Syrup... "Is that Christmas?"
Me: "Sure. Are you ready for Christmas?"
Parker: "Yeah."
Me: "Are you ready for Santa to come?"
Parker: "Oh yeah."
Me: "What do you want Santa to bring you?"
Parker: "PRESENTS!"

Parkerisms - bad dream

Parker just woke up crying and came to me for me to pick him up.

I hugged him and said what's wrong...

He said, "I want to go outside and daddy said no."

Poor kid -- Such a sad/bad dream!

Parkerisms - 2 minutes

Parker's new thing lately is "2 minutes."

Me: "Parker it's time to get ready for bed."
Parker: "Just give me two minutes."

Parker: "Kia come play in my room."
Kari: "I can't - I have to go home."
Parker: "Just two minutes?"

Adam: "It's time to turn off the tv."
Parker: "Just two more minutes."

It's so cute when he says it and holds up his two fingers - sometimes I can't help but let him have his "2 minutes."

Parkerisms - too hot

After Parker's Nap today, I told him we were going to go outside to play.  With the "cool front" that came through, our temps went down from the 90s to the 80s, and it has been very nice out.

I brought a blanket out for Rigs to sit on and Parker had his big ball and bat.

After being out there about 10 minutes he said, "It's too hot out here, let's go back inside." 

Yep - that's my kid.  He's definitely related to his momma - except I didn't think it was that hot today.  (Before our "cool front" he lasted maybe 2 minutes outside! haha)

Parkerisms - Calling Dad

I'm in the shower - Parker comes in - the conversation goes like this:

Parker: "Mom, Dad is on the phone."
Me: "Okay Parker.  Tell him I'll call him back when I get out of the shower."
Parker: "Okay" and walks out of the bathroom.

After I get dressed I go find Parker.  This is how the conversation goes...

Me: "Did daddy really call?"
Parker: "No, I called him."

Luckily it was Adam and not someone else! :)

Old Navy Mishap

We headed to Old Navy tonight to use my Super Cash I got earlier in the month. If you spend $40, you get $20 off. A great deal right! Half the price...So we found enough Items to get over $40 and checked out.  When I got home and was looking at the receipt, It looked odd to me....

(click on picture to enlarge receipt and see totals)

We called, they said they would try and figure it out and call us back.  They called back and said we have to bring in the receipt to see what messed up.

Is it worth it to drive back for just over $4.00?
Is my math even right?
What would you do?
I suppose I need to start checking receipts before I leave the store...
Do you ever check your receipts to make sure they are right?
