I have made a world record! I was able to get in and out of walmart and Costco in 1(one) hour. That is incredible. Did I mention I had three of the kids with me. The 3 youngest kids. What a stud I am...he he. So while on my little shopping adventure in Costco, I loaded all three of the kiddies into the cart and said
" Mommy is in a really big hurry so we're going to go super fast so sit down and behave..." Something along those lines anyway. While I was shopping and going way too fast down the isles at Costco, a older woman stopped right in front of our cart and was chatting with someone. Isaac yells " Out of the way, GRANDMA!" I could've died! Where does he get this stuff? So the lady turns around not too happy at all. What could I do? I just apologized and then I had a brilliant thought and that was to blame it all on the husband. So I said " you know, he gets this from his dad, I'm really sorry." Then she cracked a smile and things were good. I had a good laugh later, but Good GRIEF!

My son, the thief!

Do I even need to mention names??? There we were in Home Depot, me ,Michael, James (a friend from CHURCH), Isaac, Stevi and Rylie. We were standing in line waiting to check out and Stevi and Isaac starting eyeing the candy that is so conveniently placed right at their eye level. Michael and I said no, they had not even eaten lunch at this point. I didn't really even think anymore about it. We were just about ready to walk out and Michael said " check his pockets and make sure there is no candy. " I checked his little pockets and didn't find a thing. I definitely wasn't thinking I needed to perform a shake down on my four year old! Michael goes over and starts patting him down, asks him to lift his arms and sure enough, a king size candy bar drops to the floor. What in the world! He had hidden it between his jacket and his shirt, in his arm pit. For those of you who know Isaac, we're just lucky he didn't decide to hide it in his crack. Then we would've had to buy the dumb thing.
