Jinxed By A Chubby Chick Eating Chinese

Yesterday I was merrily on my way to Walmart with my 3 kids and MD's BFF Taylor (cause grocery shopping is so easy with kids I like to take mine AND an extra one or two) when someone requested we eat chinese. Well, I wouldn't want them to get hungry and feel bad while we pick out our healthy food.

At the restaurant there was a lady and 2 teens sitting at the table across from us. We made eye contact and exchanged smiles. I went to the buffet to fill the 2 little one's plates. When I came back the lady said,

"Your kids are so well behaved. They just sat there and talked while you were gone."

My heart dropped to my toes and the hairs on the back of my neck stood up! If we had been in a movie...the wind would have suddenly changed direction. I said "thank you" and she proceeded to tell me about the horrors of eating out with her friend's children.

Everything was fine...we had a great meal. Then we went to Walmart...

Cutie decided she was mad and was going to argue at me through all the health and beauty aisles. She caught sight of the Halloween section and became my "hat." Wild Child got away from the 2 teens and Manga Dork said there was a woman who actually said "Gee!" while they chased her through half the store. Then the teens got called down by a Walmart associate for playing volleyball down an aisle. I was innocently in the food section. Yes...my children were "Those kids" and I was "That mom."

They even had the nerve to ask for ice cream while we were driving home.

I knew I shouldn't have had chinese.

Love your header! And the Princess pics. Those are to die for.

Why do we never remember that kids have time limits? When I'm out running errands, I want to do it all. Be gone for hours, just checking things off my list. And I ALWAYS forget the 3 and 4 year olds just aren't capable of that.

Maybe we'll have this mom thing down by the time they leave the house......

I love going to Wal-Mart...cheap prices, great selection of stuff..oh, and it can be entertaining at times. And I'm convinced there's something about that place that makes kids go wacko, like it's a full moon in there all the time.
