Malted Pineapple, Coconut, Banana Smoothie and HEB $25 Gift Card Slim Down Showdown GIVEAWAY!!!!

Winner Announced Below!!!
Child #3:   And then she said, “Get away from me! YOU’RE SO ANNOYING!!!”
Me:  Is that right?  Did you call your sister annoying?
Child #1: Well, no. I told her she was annoying me, and then I asked her to go away.
Me: Well, don’t tell your sister she’s annoying, and try not to tell her to go away. She’s only SIX. The things you say really affect her.
Child #1: Well, its not my fault that she’s SO ANNOYING, and you never do anything about it. You never listen.

Me: Well, if you tell me. . .WHEN IT IS HAPPENING. . .I will do something about it.
Child #1: No you won’t. I did.  And YOU DID NOTHING.
Me:  You didn’t tell me! I would have done something.
Child #1: I did. When you were talking to Sue.
Me: Well no wonder!  I was talking to an adult! You shouldn’t be trying to hold conversations with me while I’m talking to an adult. You should have waited. I’m certainly not going to be listening to you if I’m talking to an adult. That was very rude.
Child #1 and Child #1’s Preteen Friend:   *giggle, giggle, giggle*
They think I’m an idiot.
That’s okay.
Their children will think they’re idiots too.

All I can say is I try.
100% of the time, I try.
But only if you’re trying 100%.
And only if it’s not while your telling on your sister while your mother is trying to talk to an adult.
And not while your other sister is hitting you.
Or the other, other sister is annoying you.
And certainly not while you’re sitting in the third row of the family Yukon giggling with your best friend and making fun of your mother.
Otherwise, just the mere act of trying your hardest is A-O-Kay in my book.
These guys could give us all a lesson in trying our hardest (You can click on each individual picture to find out more about them).
They are HEB’s Slim Down ShowDown Contestants! And they are trying their hardest to shed some weight over the course of a 16 week Challenge to live healthier lives and possibly win the $10,000 grand prize or a $5,000 “fan favorite” prize.
