I was walking out of Wal-Mart yesterday after a fairly good shopping visit - no running around, no fighting and they only talked me into one snack! (little boxes of Hannah Montana dried fruit) when I noticed Ben was hanging off the cart, legs dragging the ground.
"Stop dragging your legs. Do you have to put holes in every pair of jeans you have?" I asked in frustration because he is doing just that lately. I feel someone behind me and glance back...a man is snickering at us!
But I after getting loaded up in the car I started to think of all things they did just earlier that morning that made me laugh...
Ben referring to his teacher by her first name, Mona, on the way to the store and saying if he didn't have hands, he couldn't carry things so he would just "have to kick them around". As if those weren't funny enough, while I was putting my makeup on in the bathroom, he pulled out a big hair clip and was showing me how to "add volume" to my hair using it like a bump it clip.
Brinley insisting on wearing her new flip flops, and just putting them on over her socks and saying every time I nurse Bowen "babies get milk from boooobies".
If they weren't mine...
