Do I have a story for you! Kids & I went to Walmart yesterday. (kids very good I might add) Alli has been woking on tieing shoes well her shoe needed tied & you might know Miss Independent would have to try it herself. So I let her because we were completely out of everyones way. Well a lady came up behind us & stood behind Alli waiting for her to move. I was alittle confused because she could have easily walked around us. She very rudely told Alli excuse me. Alli working hard on this didn't hear her so she said it a few more times then tapped her shoulder & said EXCUSE ME! Now this is a 5 year old child. Anyway, I let it go & continued shopping. Later I ran into the lady again & thought oh great this lady does not want to mess with me today. Well the kids were actually being angels for once. ( i see you grabbing at your heart but it's true) Ty asked me to put him in buggy so I quickly picked him up & did so. Meanwhile Shanna was just singing her little heart out. She does this constantly especially when fighting sleep which she was. A lady came up & started talking to her & laughing. Ok so the "rude" lady comes up in front of us so I quickly moves so she could pass. Then here's when the poop hit the roof....... She looked at the lady talking to the baby & said this is why I leave my kids with my husband when I shop. OHHHHHH I went off I followed her to next aisle I could just feel the blood rushing to my head. I was about to blow! I got her attention then asked: mam just what does your husband do? Her reply: he is a co owner of a portrait studio. Well my reply then: well mine is fighting in Iraq so that your wonderful husband can stay at home with your kids while you shop & I walked off I turned around & she was still sitting there just staring at me. So I said loudly "thats all I wanted to say" Well by this time I felt great I got my frustration out & got my good point across. But looking at the kids they were shocked mommy had never done this before. They were quiet as mouses. We got to the car & I asked are you mad at mommy for doing that if so I am sorry. Alli said No you go mommy!!!! Anyway the lesson learned hopefully by this story is you never know what others are going through. Don't judge a book by its cover. You never know when the pages inside are filled with tears, goodbye's & I miss my daddy's.
