Last week we farmed all three kids out to various places so we could take down mini-blinds, move furniture and spend a few moments of peace and quiet before the Extreme Makeover: Redneck Edition began.
Mom took Kady to her office for the day because she can put her on a computer, give her a can of Diet Coke and never worry a second she's going to get into mischief. Mom's new office is in a building that houses other offices and a community room and you can walk a complete circle through the whole thing through various hallways. For some reason the kids love "make the circle" when they're there and that day was no different.
Mom and Kady had gone through part of the circle when Mom said, "Kady let's stop here in the bathroom so Grammy can go, okay? You just wait out here and don't touch anything." Mom went in a stall and she could hear Kady humming and her flipflops flipping and flopping as she investigated her surroundings. All of the sudden she heard Kady gasp.
"You have GOT to be freaking kidding me!" Kady exclaimed.
Mom waited but said nothing.
"Oh my GOSH. Seriously? I mean REALLY??" she blurted out again.
Mom couldn't wait any more and finally asked, "Kady, what are you talking about?"
Kady huffed and said, "TWENTY FIVE CENTS FOR A NAPKIN? Who would PAY that? Good grief, Grammy, there are free paper towels hanging right HERE on the WALL!"
