I have a friend that is majorly frugal. She has 4 children-7,5,3 and a newborn. I have met her at McDonalds twice this month for the kids to play in the playland. I get myself either the two cheeseburger meal or a salad and two happy meals for the kids. She gets a two cheeseburger meal and either the chicken nugget meal or, if there is a special, two happy meals. Then, they divide it between all of them. Last night, she got 2 hamburger meals and brought cheese to put on them.
I have never tried to have my kids share a happy meal. I have this picture of Thanksgiving twenty years in the future when they complain that they had to share happy meals and they brought their own cheese and how horrible it was. I know my sister and I would bring it all the time if we had to share in our childhood.
So, do you have your kids share happy meals? Do you bring your own cheese or drink? Do you go and not get a happy meal for the kids? Am I the stereotypical overindulgent, fat, slovenly American or what?
