Did you do my "stick" last time a gave blood?

robin said...

LOL! I've done that before! I actually have to squeeze the bottom a little bit to make sure it'll go straight down when I insert that straw rather than through the bag! I'm glad I'm in good company :)

Mom of M&Ms said...

my husband does that every single time!!! great post!

still lifting ya all up in pray

Presley family said...

Oh girl... I have been there too! Shoot I have done it, handed it to a kid, and walked away.
BIG HUGS

Shana said...

Oh man I have done that same thing. But Chris is the worst with that because of the work he does, he doesn't have the best feeling in his hands so doesn't realize how hard he is doing things. I cannot open anything he closes and he is constantly replacing the O Rings in our faucets because of how hard he turns them lol.

Lisa said...

Ha!

danette said...

Haha!! I've done that too. And on the flip side, I have spent a good 5 minutes trying to get the darn straw to go in in the first place. (dh thought that was hilarious of course). Ack!

Tina said...

I've done that too many times before...while squeezing it at the same time. So...you can imagine the mess!

Buckeroomama said...

You are so not alone in this; I've done it, too --except I didn't take pictures and put it on the blog! ;p

Yes, I will definitely try to plan better (or rather, hopefully, my kids will let me plan better) next time, so we could meet up! :)

sara said...

you would think after all these years they would find a better way to put those straws in!!! When my kids were little, I can't tell you how many I had to "transfer" to a glass or have them squeeze it into their mouths!!

Beth said...

Ha, ha! Love this:)!!!
Beth

Emmy said...

Lol! Oh I used to have the hardest time with those things

Foursons said...

Like you and almost all of your commenters I have done this too. I'm thinking an LOI is in order to the pouch drink makers so they can fix this problem. :)

ModernMom said...

LOL I'm terrible at those things!

RaD said...

HA! HA! I hate those type of pouches for that very reason.

Bethany said...

I hate those things. For a "mess free" drink they are so stinking messy!

Hahaha, why do they make those so DIFFICULT?!

Jennie said...

Oh my gosh, my son hasn't tried those yet, but I used to work at day camps, and those things are crazy hard to get into properly!!!

lifebythecreek said...

Been there. Done that. We NEED a tshirt! hahaha... I hate pouches! At least with the juice boxes, you can make "wings" for the kids to hold on to so they don't squirt the darn things everywhere. Could we all just go back to cartons of juice and cups? *crickets* no? nevermind.

Anonymous said...

what!! Yet another blog post without a photo of Itty-Bit?!! I'm fainting from withdrawl!

Bridget said...

Oh heavens this cracks me up! (only because I've been there, done that, had to cut the corner off and pour it into a cup...)

The person who invented those HAS to be a guy, I just know it :p

Tamar SB said...

Oh, unparenting fail too! I failed at those as a kid too, I told my mom is was b/c she never bought them so I had no practice!

Joy Graham said...

Yea!!!I am not the only one!!! I give up on those drink pack things. Thank you for your comment over at my place. I will pray for your little's eye surgery. blessings-Joy

Susan said...

Dang. I HATE those things. They're known as "juice fountains" in my house. We now put the straw in and then squeeze the juice into a cup. That way, there are better odds the juice won't end up on a freshly mopped floor.

Kerri said...

Hi Rachel! Thanks for visiting my blog...it's nice to meet you! I have just spent the last 30 mins. reading your blog- I love it! We have much in common! I'm hard of hearing. Your little guy is so CUTE!! I look forward to following you!

Ostriches Look Funny said...

We curse that particular sort of juice box. Seriously poor engineering, probably purposefully intended to drive mothers across the nation insane.

kc said...

Girl, I do that ALL the time. Doodles has decided I am not allowed to open pouches LOL

The Lady Wolf said...

Haha. I do that almost every single time. 99% of the time, I never buy these because of this and kids accidently squeeze and juice shoots straight up! Good post!

HeatherOz said...

LMBO!! That is hilarious!

Furry Bottoms said...

Great pictures! :) I almost did a similar thing with some Capri Lemonade.

Tiffany said...

SNORT!

Marley's Mama said...

I needed this today! Thanks!

stephanie said...

HA! I've done that wayyy too many times

Kameron said...

Awesome. Those have the stupidist design in history. They should re-inforce the back panel!
