Freakin' Hillarious...Quite Ingenious!!!

The other night we were having family movie night and Mark popped popcorn for everyone to eat while we watched the movie. Normally we don't allow anyone to eat in the family room and we especially don't allow drinks in the family room, but since it was "movie night" we made an exception and had the popcorn and some water bottles. Just as I started getting into the movie I noticed that Matt was drinking a can of Mountain Dew. I would love to say that being the nice, wonderful mom that I am, I ignored the sugary, sticky beverage and just let him drink it, but, not so! I have learned my lesson on this one WAY too many times! I reminded Matt that he had to drink his Mountain Dew on the tile in the kitchen and the next thing I knew he was standing on the edge of the tile, leaning over the back of the couch enjoying the movie with his Mountain Dew in hand. I told him that still wasn't going to cut it and he had to drink it at the table. Just as I got back into the movie I looked over and saw the funniest thing! Matt had made a contraption that allowed him to sit on the couch and drink his drink while the drink was still actually on the kitchen table! Too funny!
