Fajitas cause gas

Okay, so last night mexican was on the menu for dinner... we: Mauldin, Laura, my sister-in-law, Jenn, brother-in-law, Paul and niece Annagrace all went to a local mexican hotspot called La Parrilla. (I honestly do not know if I spelled that corretly.)

"Hola! Welcome to La Parrilla! Two and a 1/2 for dinner?" said the nice lady behind the podium as we walked in the door.

I stood in the restarant lobby with Mauldin in his car seat on one arm and his diaper bag on the other. I looked the epitome of a daddy. Of course, I am sure I looked the part because my purple polo shirt was wrinkled as can be and I am sure I had some dark circles under my eyes. We decided to head to dinner after a short nap, but can I just say that short doesn't emcompass how short it truly was.

I took the chance to have myself a margarita and Laura and I shared a double order of chicken fajitas. This, at the time, we thought it was a good idea. "We are being so economical!" We thought. However, if I knew what would transpier after said mexican outing I would of chosen something different from their ever-so stickey and glossy menu.

I know this might be TMI, but I feel I need to let you know so you do not make the same mistake. If you feel the need for fajitas and your wife is breastfeeding be sure to take plenty of gas ex, beano or some sort of gas suppression.

After dinner we were so uncomfortable! Mauldin did not have a good night, so that means our sleep was severly disrupted. He was up at 11PM, 1 AM, 3 AM and 5 AM and each time it took a good 15 to 20 minutes to put him back to sleep. Let me just add that I had to go to work the next day and I had a hard time keeping my eyes open the first few hours of the morning.

Moral of story... watch your onion and pepper intake when eating fajitas!

I don't like it when they call the kids "halves".. Sure it works when there is ONE kid.. But what if I bring two kids?

"Table for 3"

"Umm no.. Three and a high chair.."

I'm in San Antonio, mexican food is in our baby food.. We're used to the gas... :)

Oh my gosh - this is hilarious. I'm sure not so much for you - but for me is is. LOL! How well I remember having to be careful what I ate when I was a nursing Mom - and then going thru the same with Melissa.......all 4 just kinda start remembering what you can and cannot eat if you want your baby to sleep and not have you walking the floor all night long. I'm thinking there will be no more chicken fajitas in Laura's future for awhile. :)

LOL. Next time just get a bean burrito, they are a much better alternative.

The hubby gets gas from drinking water! I dont even bother with watching what I make for diiner. It all ends up the same........

As for not sleeping, after a few years your body just adjusts. It's been 9 years since I got a decent nights sleep. We are just now getting a full nights sleep.

Good luck with that!!!
