That family at Wal-mart
So, we're going into Wally World a few nights ago and we see this family going in. Mom, dad, and 3 kids. Not particularly interesting as people go, but we kept running into them all night long as we shopped. Every time we encountered them, you could tell they were becoming more and more frazzled. The mom's face was flushed (it WAS about 115 degrees in there!) and I watched her put her hair up in a scrunchie right before she began trying clothes on her little girl right there in the little girls clothing department. A lot of "Come here!" and "Stop that" was heard. The little boy spent a big part of the time saying "ready! ready! ready!" The little girl ran around and through the clothes racks. Then we saw them in the lay-away line and the two youngest of the 3 kids were running around, doing flips on the floor and touching everything and drinking from the water fountains over and over and over...and did I mention talking really LOUDLY?? All I could think was, "I am so going to blog this."

Did I mention the kids names?
Guard Girl, Tater Tot, and Baby J.

Yes, WE have become that wal-mart family that others blog about. Someone shoot me now.

    My sympathies, Angie.

    It seems a lot of commenters had a guilty feeling that you were referring to them.

    We were at Wally World last night, I think we saw you.

    Mind you, I was the mother chasing the 2 1/2 year old who refused to stay in the cart. Wanted up. Then down. Then up, then down.
