Happy Meal Happiness

Tuesday evenings Jenna and Mady have Lyric Academy practice from 4:30pm-8:00pm. We share the carpooling responsibilities between parents. Susan (Mady's mom) usually takes and Jim or I pick up (guess we need to get Rick in there somewhere). Tuesday night was my turn to pick them up. We haven't quite figured out how to get dinner/snack in there yet so I was offering the wonderfully nutritious option of McDonald's, which my daughter jumped on immediately because it isn't an option much anymore.

We get in the drive through line and order an orange soda, a chicken sandwich, and a cheeseburger happy meal with an orange drink. (I know right now you're thinking how desperate I must be for material for my blog if I'm telling you what I ordered at McDonald's) Anyway... The guy on the intercom thingy asked if my happy meal was a boy or a girl, I'm sure he probably asked if it was for a boy or girl, but we got so tickled at the thought of how can you tell if a happy meal cheeseburger is a boy or a girl you turn it over? you lift the bun up? etc... I will never order a happy meal again without a smile on my face.


  1. When my kids were younger and would get happy meals, and they would ask if it was for a boy or a girl, my kids would always want to know, "well, it depends ... what are the toys??" :)

  2. Now I'll be smiling too every time I order a happy meal. I'll probably want to name it too.

  3. I think we've all been there and thought that when asked that same question at the Micky D's drive thru!

  4. Cute! If I ever eat a McD's burger again, I'm totally going to lift the bun to check the gender. LOL!

  5. An insightfull post. Will definitely help.
