Ever have one of those trips to Target, Wal-Mart, Kroger, etc. that just went WRONG?! Well, yesterday was my day to have it! Harrison and I had to make our weekly Target run while waiting on Caitlin at Dance. Normally this is a pretty routine trip where we just make our way up and down the aisles wasting time. It started out that way...then when I told Harrison we needed to leave the toy section, he melted!! So I just calmly placed him in the cart and went on my way (with him screaming at the top of his lungs). He finally calmed down and was just whimpering a little UNTIL we got to the checkout. I wouldn't let him press the buttons on the credit card machine! I wasn't even paying that way--I had cash!! I kept ignoring him and I thought the checkout girl was going to have to put her hands over her ears. Well...we finally get to the door. WHEW!!! I decided not to take the cart out into the parking lot, so I got my bags out and proceeded to put the cart back in line. Harrison says, "I get out myself." I say to this, "Um...no. It's a long drop from the top of the cart to the floor and you'll crack your head wide open when you fall!" Another round of screaming starts! So I grab him up like a sack of potatoes and out we go. I am sure they were very happy to see me leave the store! So yes, Heather, I have frustrating days too with my children out in public!!
I wear many hats, but the ones I am most proud of are wife, mom, and teacher. I am married to my college sweetheart and the best man ever, Randy, and we have 2 beautiful children, Caitlin and Harrison. We are so blessed by God and try very hard to give back to our community. I teach first grade to some of the best students in the world. Some days I feel like I'm going crazy, but with God's help, I know I can make it!
