And that's all I have to say about that

Panda Express + Diet Dr. Pepper + Monster Energy drink + 9 PM = not such a great idea after all

P.S. Should your four year old decide to play hide and seek (and not tell you) while you are paying for your Sweet Fire Chicken, and then you start looking for her thinking she must have picked out a table already and then you realize how very quiet it is (and trust me, it's never quiet with her around), you will just begin to panic as you realize the tour bus full of um, tourists is just pulling out and your daughter is nowhere to be found, you will start to call her name, growing more frantic as she doesn't respond and people will start to look up at you and prepare their statements for the 10 o'clock news/Amber Alert (What a horrible mother, she was more concerned about sticky rice and fortune cookies than holding on to her 4 year old's hand, it's tragic really).

AND THEN

said four year old will jump out from behind the trash cupboard and "RAHR!" at you and you will be oh so glad that you've already been to the Ladies' and emptied your bladder, but you might almost pass out from the double whammy of surprise that 1) she is not kidnapped after all and 2) damn! is she ever good at hide and seek.

P.P.S Probably you will discover a whole new shock of gray hair that night. Probably. I'm just sayin'.

Oh man, I have had similar things happen with my kids. NOT FUNNY. I'm glad she wasn't on the bus to Wendover!

That Ellie is a pistol!
Maybe you should stick to the restaurants with giant elephants to keep her glued to your leg.

Dang that girl's hilarious. Expect to be completely gray within two years at this rate though.

I'm still trying to process the Monster energy drink at 9:00pm. REALLY? I think I am a little jealous!

That is really funny. I mean to me it was but I'm sure in the moment it was a heart racing thing.
