My Dinner With Tyler

Inspired by Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop.

Prompt # 1. Your first born child gets to choose where you eat for dinner…what would they pick and why?

Tyler has been feeling like a real star lately.  Last Thursday, Mama Kat and friends wanted to know what he was wearing for Halloween, this week they want to know where he would eat if he could pick any restaurant he wanted?

I really thought I knew what he would say, I was betting McDonald’s due to the whole Happy Meal toy thing but my interview proved surprising:

Me:  So, Tyler, if you could eat at any restaurant you wanted to, where would you eat and why?

Tyler:  Ummm, pizza!

This child has never in his life asked to be taken out to pizza.  I never knew that he would be such a cheap date.

Me:  And why would you want to eat there?

Tyler:  Because…it’s yummy! (Goes back to playing)

Me:  So…that’s it?

Tyler:  Yep.

And I’m thinking, “How am I going to make a blog post out of this?”

And here we are.

It’s not delivery, it’s Stouffer’s.

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.
