Errands, lots of errands


The errand list was long today!  I purposely saved my least favorite errand for last. . .Walmart.  I didn’t need much, just Halloween candy, a few things for kids Halloween parties at school, deodorant, etc.  I made two major mistakes:  

1.  Taking two tired kids in the store that had been troopers through the previous five errands.  

2.  It was lunchtime. 

Shortly after we enter the store Ellie bumped her nose on the side of the cart and cried and cried.  We calmed her down and then Tanner decided he wanted to hold the bag of Halloween candy that she was holding.  It resulted in Tanner getting his face scratched.  I guess you could say Ellie won?  Tanner calmed down and then he found some amazing fire fighter rain boots in his size that he wanted so badly!  (Sorry, he doesn’t go enough places in the rain for me to justify his need for rain boots.) I physically lifted him in the cart and continued on to get the last two items on the list.  Tanner was screaming and saying that I was mean because I wouldn’t get them for his birthday.  A Walmart worker looked at me and said, “I understand.  I have three kids.” 

Oh, the joys of motherhood!
