Here is something that one of my loyal readers wrote to me a while back. Thanks for sharing Barb and for that I will give you an 8x10!

Corla when I read your blog today it reminded me of my older sister, Shirley. She had 2 boys less than 2 years apart and always found it the hardest to go grocery shopping. I remember her telling me the story about Aaron her oldest at the time, he would have been 3 and Blake about 1. Blake of course was in sitting the shopping cart while Shirley was filling the cart with groceries. Aaron on the other hand was running all over the place, definitely a hyper kid . Shirley was in one of those long line ups at the till when Aaron told her he had to go to the bathroom. She didn't want to leave the line up so she told him he had to wait until they got home. 2 seconds later Aaron disappears. Shirley called for him but he chose not answer so she pulls out of the line up and starts pushing the over filled cart around the store looking for Aaron. She turned to the magazine aisle and there was Aaron pants at ankles peeing all over the magazines. She turned around got back in the line up and hoped no one seen him peeing on the magazines. She said all she could think of was someone picking up a magazine and leafing thru the pages licking their fingers as they glanced at the pictures. When she got home she had taken Blake into the house and came back out to carry in the groceries. Aaron had decided to get the eggs out of the grocery bag and drop them one at a time on the sidewalk. I don't know how you do it with 5 children.
