A Thousand Words Thursday



Got...Diet Pepsi Milk?! This is what happens when you go to put a full gallon of milk into the fridge but accidentally drop it on the floor. We couldn't save the milk container but luckily have about a gazillion empty Diet Pepsi bottles in the recycling. K was excited then crushed to find out what she was going to get to drink!

Cheaper Than Therapy

    I would have felt the same way as K! I've done that before too, but usually it ends up in a pitcher because I don't buy soda. :/

  2. Mel Fraase said...

    Good thinking!! That looks exactly like something my husband would do. He's a Diet Pepsi addict, bottles everywhere!! Poor K, she was robbed!

  3. NateAndJakesMom said...

    I would die if I went to get my beloved Diet Pepsi and there was milk in there! LOL

  4. the RaMbLeR said...

    oh man!! and she thought she would get some really good soda!

    You owe her now...MOM! lol

    Hey, if you left some of the Pepsi in there you could be like LaVern (and Shirley).... ;-)

  5. I am Harriet said...

    OMG!
    The panic...the mess...the smell....
    Only a mom can relate to your pain because we've been there.

    Have a great day!

    I'm in, I'm in! ;o)

  7. ~~gail~~mooselovingmamabear said...

    Great thinking! And for some kids, great way to have them drink milk...LOL

  8. 4 Lettre Words said...

    Oh, goodness! Quick thinking, Mom!!

  9. Martha (FL) said...

    Funny picture! Tara does not like anything carbonated but LOVES milk.

  10. Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

    Double-recycle...love it! And that's too funny K thought she was getting Pepsi until she saw what it really was... :)

  11. Faith - That's Just Freaking Lovely said...

    Hey, at least the milk didn't all spill out. I've dropped a gallon of milk and had the entire thing split in half and milk went everywhere .. It's super fun to clean up!

  12. Sarah said...

    LOL - quick thinking.

  13. Raise Them Up said...

    We've done the same thing on occasion. I'm glad you had some bottles to put it in! :)

  14. It Feels Like Chaos said...

    So funny! That has happened to me a few times, tough. I used pitchers. Good times!

  15. kel said...

    Very funny shot!!!

  16. Sarah said...

    Too Funny! My kids would rebel!

  17. Colleen said...

    oh I have done that a few times myself!

    We went to pizza hut yesterday and we ordered water to drink...my son went around stealing sips out of everyones hoping there was some soda in somebodies...oh the dissappointment!

  18. Dee said...

    Fast thinking!!!

  19. Mighty M said...

    That is definitely one way to get kids to drink milk. "No, it's pop honey".. :-)

  20. Amy@Bitchin'WivesClub said...

    My kids would be just the same. But my oldest would still probably've said, "eeewwww. Mom, you can't put soda on cereal!" Whatta complainer!

  21. Kristen Andrews said...

    oh man been there!

  22. Colleen - Mommy Always Wins said...

    HA HA HA!

    Now that's recycling! ;-)

  23. jill jill bo bill said...

    Didn't Laverne make that milk & pepsi a famous drink? Or was that Squiggy?

  24. jsprik said...

    lol, that's too funny...not the milk mess part but thta K thought she was gonna drink DP then realized it was milk :(

  25. Lindsay said...

    LOL that totally cracked me up! Way to save the milk!

  26. Kelly said...

    At least you were at home when you dropped it...there's nothing worse than dropping your milk in the parking lot!

  27. Tammy said...

    Yikes! I hate it when that happens. Somehow it's weird to drink milk from a different container too, I don't know why, it just is!

  28. Elle said...

    We always have plenty of empty Diet Pepsi bottles. Unfortunately, I drink it like water.

  29. Tony@ That One Paticular Harbor said...

    That is wonderful. we don't drink any soda so I would be in big trouble.

  30. Anissa said...

    I think I am the first comment! I would so rather drop milk then a syrup bottle. That was so much fun trying to get that up! Thanks for sharing!

  31. Proud Mommy said...

    LOL!!!! My kids would be so excited too!!!

  32. He And Me + 3 said...

    Bummer on the leaky milk jug, but atleast you got to save it. Milk is so expensive.

  33. Jo-Jo said...

    I have done that before!

  34. Lolli said...

    Hahaha! That's a mean trick, for someone who's expecting Pepsi! :) At least you had something to save the milk. How is your floor?

  35. MamaJoss said...

    That looks pretty gross...almost as gross as the snails! You got me thinking about what I would use...all I have in my recycle bin is WINE BOTTLES (rough week!)

  36. Gena said...

    That is great! I would have been upset to lose all that milk!

  37. Carrie said...

    That is great! How funny! Glad you could save your milk! :)

  38. Ladybird said...

    I hate milk. My mother says as soon as I stopped taking a bottle, I stopped drinking milk. Just the sight of it makes me gag! LOL! Looking at your picture, I was thinking...that better not be milk! Now I am going to have a problem drinking Pepsi without thinking about it! haha!

  39. Lisa @ Crazy Adventures in Parenting said...

    haha, that sounds like something we would do ;)

  40. Amy A.K.A. "The Mrs." said...

    What a clever idea. :) And so "green" of you, too.

  41. Evolving Mommy Catherine said...

    That is some fast thinking!

  42. A Family Completed... said...

    Don't you hate it when that happens! At first glance I thought you had Crystal Clear Pepsi... remember that? I may the only one in the world who remembers, lol

  43. jennykate77 said...

    Too funny. Way to improvise!

    Hope you're having a great week!

  44. Melissa said...

    Ugghhh, I hate when that happens! Usually we don't ahve another bottle of something lying around when it does either :(

  45. Lori said...

    That's one way to trick your kids into drinking milk!

  46. Erin said...

    No use crying over spilt milk. Great thinking, if not a huge tease for poor K! :-)

  47. Clare said...

    so funny!!

  48. Sarah said...

    Too funny, I would be disappointed too!

    I actually had a similar disaster here about a week ago, being the brainiac I am I decided to use a knife to cut the seal on the milk and ended up puncturing the jug. Lucky for me I had an empty milk jug to use.

  49. Brittany said...

    OMG I have totally done this! HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  50. Miranda said...

    LOL We've done that before but had nothing to put the milk in. :p

    Hey, you totally inspired me to beg my hubby for a nice camera BTW. He might be falling for it. I can't wait to take nice pictures like you :)

    Oh, I have a new group/forum for mom & dad bloggers. I would love to see you over there!

  51. Krystyn said...

    Smart thinking...now did it take like Pepsi?

    I was totally thinking they brought back Clear Pepsi, too (and then remember the SNL kit with clear gravy? gross.)

  52. Mrs4444 said...

    And here I had guessed that you had a cow in your back yard! :)

  53. Merrie said...

    That was resourceful!!

    I'm so sad -- I can no longer blog at work. The filter won't let me access the blogger pages, and is even blocking more and more blogs that I read. What, I can't have a mid-morning or lunch break for blog time?? *sigh* Guess I should go do more work, since that's all there is now. (Not even facebook as of today -- that's blocked, too!!!)

  54. Domestic Goddess (In Training) said...

    I once had an apple juice container full of chocolate milk. They ought to make those cartons stronger.

  55. John Deere Mom said...

    Okay, I can't believe I am about to admit this, but...I used to mix Diet Pepsi and milk when I was younger, like in middle school. Seriously. And I kind of have a hankering for it after seeing the milk in the Diet Pepsi bottle.
    Have I totally grossed you out?
