We have major news here at the Stump house. We're talking serious business. Ground breaking. Earth shattering. Potentially life-changing information you all should be aware of. Are you ready?
Ty has ended an addiction. He has said "no" to ketchup 3 days in a row. Those of you who have been over for dinner (or any meal including breakfast), have had us over for a meal, or have read virtually any one of our blog posts know that ketchup has been a monumental part of Ty's existence since before he could say the word. In fact, I looked back on an old blog that refers to Ty's favorite new sentence, "no teh-tup head, daddy pank a bah-bahm." Which, translated means "No rubbing ketchup on my head, or daddy will spank my bottom." He was 1 1/2. We've had to lay the law down multiple times that ketchup is not for putting on pancakes, in soup, or by itself for a pre-dinner snack.
I was surprised that he didn't ask for ketchup a few days ago when I gave him some Mexican casserole for dinner. I was in shock when he asked for Ranch dressing instead of ketchup for his Dino chicken nuggets 2 nights ago. And last night I just about fainted when he scraped off the ketchup on his hot dog and insisted on dipping it in Ranch.
Does anyone know if Costco will exchange industrial sized bottles of ketchup for cases of Ranch dressing? I'm thinking I may need that information ASAP.
