Nice Old Lady
I went to Wal-Mart today. With all four kids. I wonder if I will ever go to Wal-Mart again and NOT be the lady with all the rowdy kids that all the other shoppers are staring at. I also wonder if I will ever go to Wal-Mart again without fighting the urge to cry by the time I am finished. C-Ray was unusually rowdy, even for himself. Little One screamed at the top of her lungs the ENTIRE time I was waiting in the checkout line and checking out. And she has a VERY loud scream. She stopped the moment she got in her carseat. There was an older lady checking out in front of us. As the checker girl finished scanning all of her items, Nice Old Lady picks up the box of Nutty Bars she was buying and offers them to me, saying, "I would like to give these to you for your children." Of course I protested, and she says (no joke), "No really, I want you to have them. You need them more than I do."
