milk was a bad choice
I have this deeply rooted milk phobia. When I was younger I was babysitting Madison Wardel one night and after putting her to bed, poured myself a glass of milk. The Wardels got their milk from Country Boy Dairy, so it was in one of those jug thingies. I took a big swig....it was rotten...really rotten. I threw up in the sink repeatedly. Since then I have been weird about milk. I can only drink milk from my house or my mom's (Back when my mom drank real milk). That's it. I cannot, under any circumstances, share milk. If Spencer took a sip of milk from the jug, I'd refuse to drink it, or worse, out of my cup....ew! I also can't drink it out of paper...cup or carton. Furthermore, if it is within 3 days of expiring, I refuse to drink it and Spencer has to finish it off. I know, I'm strange. Luckily, Shanda experiences the exact same disease.
Yesterday Spencer and I were laughing about how his dad would only buy one drink for the three kids to share whilst on family drives, and Spencer would guzzle it, so Summer would time him. (That's probably where Miley gets it from, Sum!) We also laughed that their only option was Sprite. I suggested I'd rather our kids have juice, or better yet, milk. Spencer then offered this entirely accurate description of what would happen:
Spencer: "On trips? Milk!? Yeah good idea, honey. Cru would be like (in a deep Ron Burgundy-like voice), "Mommy, my tummy huuuurts....I just drank this whole 20 ounce milk!" Then, Bossy (Bostyn) would be like (in a high pitched, sassy black girl with a fro voice), "Cru, you are so lame! I told you not to get milk!" Cru would then proceed to spit up milk in his car seat, Bossy would throw up too cause she'll probably inherit your gag reflex and you'd be in the passenger seat yelling at me to pull over in between dry heaves...next thing you know the whole family is having water in their cereal for the next three to six years!"
me, after laughing hysterically: "Yeah. Sprite is good. We're gonna have the best life ever!!"
