I want you to do something for me. Sit back, relax and think back. Remember the days, not so very long ago when you could go grocery shopping with only two children? And more importantly, with the two children who are confined to the shopping cart the entire time you're there? Remember those blissful days?
Now, think, and think hard. What made those days possible? Well, I'll tell you. School. That's what. I don't understand how you can wish for eternal summer. I. Just. Don't. Get. IT.
Because today, well, today was torture. Because in addition to those two children who are happily strapped into the race car cart, you had two additional children, complete with mini carts of their own. And you may have had to eat your words today. Did they taste good?
I didn't think so.
So next time you go praising the joys of summer and having your girls home with you ALL THE TIME, think back on today. Remember having to yell at Tayleigh for hanging on every possible thing, including price signs, and the produce bin. And when that produce bin creaked ominously, remember how your head almost exploded?
When you are wishing that Eden would stay at home with you all the time, just remember how she "didn't" ask for everything that she saw, she just pointed everything out that you wouldn't be getting with an added, "but wouldn't it be fun if we did get it?"
And then remember how you were so distracted by all of this that you didn't notice the old woman trying to get to the celery, but she couldn't between your 18 foot long cart and the two mini carts in her way. And then remember how she may or may not have swore at you? Yeah, etch that into your memory the next time you feel like making stupid, stupid wishes.
