Our family went out to watch Wreck It Ralph last Monday. It was such a fun movie! I loved the whole concept. Brilliant and super creative.

Anyway, so I bought the tickets, went to the snack bar, ordered 4 hotdog sandwiches and popcorn. The guy in the counter asked me later on if I wanted him to put ketchup and mayonnaise on all sandwiches. Danae immediately told me she just wanted mayonnaise. Noelle doesn’t really like condiments, so hers was a “naked” one. King was putting our groceries in the car so I made the choice for him — both ketchup and mayonnaise, since he usually likes everything. I only really like tomato ketchup and mustard on my hotdog, so with the choices given to me, I settled for just the banana ketchup.

It occurred to me how different we are from each other! No two hotdogs alike haha.

Like what I keep saying to my girls when they compare themselves to each other — not better, not worse, not more, not less, JUST DIFFERENT. Embrace the differences. Appreciate it. Respect it. 🙂

  4. […] Yeah, there are people who like it, there are people who don’t. Remember my old blog about our preferences in eating our hotdog? We’re all different. You ate yours without bread, nothing on it. Danae ate hers with bread […]
