Kool-Aid Kid

You know, I the saying that you never miss a good thing until it's gone rings true. Okay, I'm not missing anyone, but I am missing something. And it may seem trivial or even crazy to some of you, but I really am missing something that I didn't think was important.

I'm a Kool-Aid kid. YEP! We drink Kool-Aid in our house! I'm not one of those moms that have to have 100% juice in my fridge and I'm not worried about the high frutose corn syrup either. It's fine in moderation.

Okay, so we don't drink Kool-Aid in moderation here because it is ALWAYS in my fridge. Except for the last week because I haven't gone grocery shopping.
LOVE Kool-Aid.

Grape, orange, lemonade and RED!

Yeah, you know how WE do it! Red Kool-Aid don't have a flavor to black people. It's just RED!

And who can beat the 20 cents a pack price?

Honey, it's summer time. The kids are home and, frankly, juice is expensive! My kids drink Kool-Aid!

I had it when I was a kid all the time. Mom mom has suddenly become too good to drink kool-aid and now only has JUICE in her fridge. Funny because I don't remember us having juice, except for the FREE Juicy Juice she use to get from WIC for my sisiter. Once that ran out, it was KOOL-AID.

I'm not sure that it is good for the kids, but it is certainly good for my wallet!

It's filled with water, right?

Okay, so they are not allowed to just drink it all willy nilly. Mama does make the twerps drink water as well. So there!

Okay, I didn't mean to make a whole long post about my love of Kool-Aid but........ well........ I did!

So, I'll add in those pictures of the new car I promised.

I LOVE KOOL-AID ALSO. My little cousins hate the stuff. I'm almost positive they belong to the milkman, weirdos.

The new car is hott.

Boo and I were just talking about Koolaid the other day. We were naming our favorite flavors...Red. Red was one of my favorite too. We used to fight over who could lick the packet. My mom solved that by saying whoever "makes" the Kool-aid licks the packet. Remember the Kool-aid mustaches? Every kid had Kool-aid mustaches in my day. Thanks for the memories. We never had the cool glass canister...only Tupperware.

LOL!!! You are so funny!!! Honestly, I'm too lazy to mix up kool-aid all the time, so I just buy the juice pouches. But my kids do LOVE kool-aid! And I call the kool-aid by its color too, instead of the flavor. LOL! I love your new car!! Are you having fun driving around in it? Are you gonna let your kids take their red kool-aid in it? LOL!!! Ha!!!
