What to wear if you’re not a cow

In my continuing quest to make sure my children require therapy for the duration of their childhood and well into their adult years, today I took them to the mall. Dressed as cows.

Yes, it’s okay. Take a moment to soak that up. It was 97 degrees outside, and I dressed them as cows and took them to the mall. Because I am the Greatest. Mother. EVER.*

But this reminds me (and what a nice segue) to point out that if you are planning on acquiring a men’s or ladies’ special edition, 3-Day-supporting, ultra-super-cool Woulda Coulda Shoulda t-shirt, you need to do so by the end of next week. The shirts will be available until July 22nd and then they will be gone forever. (I need to have time to tally it up and get the funds deposited into my walk account.) (Not to mention that then I need to start freaking out about BlogHer.)

Hey, not everyone can pull off being dressed like a cow. But everyone needs a cool t-shirt for a good cause….

*Lest you think I’m horrible, they were TOTALLY into it. Also they enjoyed their kids’ meals very much, and it’s the first time Monkey’s ever eaten at Chik-fil-A because they cook everything in peanut oil and we avoided them like the plague while he was still allergic. Plus their meals came with TOYS and you know that I NEVER buy them food that comes with toys. They thought they’d died and gone to bovine heaven.

    If we had one near us, I totally would have taken my kids. Sounds like it was fun.

    Cool! I love Chick-fil-A. Their kids toys are usually very educational, being the Christian restaurant, closed on Sundays, type that they are.

    Here’s a thought if you decide your crazy enough to do the Three Day again next year. Sell cow print shirts as a fund raiser. People buy shirt. Money goes to a good cause. People wear said shirt to Chik Fil A. People get free food.

    Seeing as I’ve sufficiently freaked out about BlogHer already, I’ll spend time freaking out about getting my t-shirts done.

    They closed our Chik Fil A and I don’t think I’ve ever recovered. I miss that chickeny smell at the mall and am forced to get an Auntie Anne’s pretzel. Poor me.

    I TOTALLY wanted to know someone who actually did this! And now I DO! Sort of. I think you taught a valuable lesson here Mir: You’re never too cool for chicken.

    Did you know you can turn in the toys at Chik-Fil-A for ice cream? LOVE that place!

    oh and I’ve never heard about Chick-fil-A.
