Picture this...

Today Jeff had to go in to work because it is a very busy time of the year for him. So, I had to take the kids with me to Walmart to do my grocery shopping. I HATE Walmart. I don't use the word 'hate' much, but for this situation it applies. Well, after I got everyone ready for the day we loaded up the car and headed out. When I left the house it was not raining, when I got gas it was not raining, but when I had to get the kids out of the car it started sprinkling. No big deal, I had an umbrella with me. We get inside and Claire starts crying, I can't really remember why. Well, I am going as fast as possible, and then she starts screaming. She wanted a banana... so she is screaming "NA, NA..." Everyone is staring. Then I look up and Luke has pulled both of his socks off, and they are gone. He must have dropped them somewhere. So, while Claire is drawing attention to us, know people are noticing that my infant has no socks on and it is 36 degrees outside. I could just hear what they where thinking... what a horrible mother! Her baby is freezing and her toddler is starving! Ok, I can handle the staring, you get used to it when you have a toddler. So, I head to the check out and look outside, it is now pouring. I got Claire out of the cart and let her hold the umbrella (which is 3 times her size) and I try to cover Luke up the best I can. Out the door we go... cars are not stopping for us to pass. Finally we get to the car. I turn my head for one second to pull out my car keys and then I looked down... for some reason Claire decided that she would sit down in a nasty puddle on the ground. You have got to be kidding me... I am NEVER taking the kids to Walmart ever again.

Here is a new picture of the munchkins... it's a good thing they are so cute!

Believe me - you are probably one of the best parents at Wal-mart! Glad you can post about your parenting adventures - it's good record keeping!

Awww, this is a sad story! I hate Walmart, too, and it is just myself I have to drag in there. Give me Target any day!
