The Bank Statement Never Lies

I was in the Northwest last week. My in-laws were in charge for 2 of the 4 days I was gone. Seems like when they headed back East, my kiddo's diets headed South.

I know they ate good while my in-laws were here because I shopped for and planned those meals. My friend, Christina, spotted them all at Snuffer's one night, but when the cheese fries call, I can understand having to answer.

So the hubby and kids were on their own for 5 meals. I was envisioning healthy cereals, grilled meats and roasted veggies. Okay, not really. I thought they might have done a bit better than what the bank statement revealed though.

Breakfast: Kin's Donut $7.32

Lunch: Jack in the Box $6.35

Dinner: Domino's Pizza $13.52

Breakfast: Grandy's $5.80

Lunch: Dickey's BBQ $12.52

So apparently they ate out all weekend. And at such fine establishments. No wonder the kitchen was so clean. I should have known when the dishwasher had been run with only bottles and sippy cups in it!

That's least I wasn't around for any of the belly aches they must have had. Actually at those prices, maybe he was only feeding himself that crap? Did he forget to feed the kids?!?

The bank statement hurts. Though- to be honest... having a husband who manages a bank hurts worse.

I walking out of a Gymboree two years ago when my phone rang. It was my husband. "Dear- do we have any of those frilly hair clip thingies for K-girl?" he asked.

"Ummm.. I don't know. Why?" I replied.

"WE BETTER!" he continued. "For the 65$ you just spent at Gymboree... we sure better have a stock pile of those things."

Ahhhh- the husband that keeps the account open on his work desk all day long provides unwanted accountability at times.

*Thanks for stopping by my blog today and for commenting on K-girl's annual wedding pictures. I would of course be flattered should you choose to picture your girls in the same way. Furthermore- the cleaned pressed dress does you NO GOOD in the box year after year... :0)

No wonder they had such a good time when you were gone.....Sounds like they ate like we did ...All the fast food our our trip....I don't even want to think about time we do a girls weekend, we will have to plan restaurant wait times in our daily agenda!

Hmm? No mention of the charges from your shopping spree before departure. How convenient...

Wow, this is a first. My post pulled a comment out of my a fellow blogger.

So, let me clarify...I could care less about the money spent...only concerned about the quality of food my kids were eating.

If you didn't leave a giant poster board with instructions in large black letters that said "Feed and water the kids" it is likely it didn't happen. At least that's how it is in my house.
