After we went to Walmart to get some cetaphil cream for Jackson. He's had super dry, red cheeks and so I asked the dr. about him and she suggested that. Jackson has a huge tantrum in the middle of our trip, my neighbor sees me and comes to my rescue! She holds Jackson and he calls down for her. Yay! So then I head to check out. This is the bugged part of my post.
I see a light on, so I roll my cart over and notice a lady at the end, looking at gift cards it looks like. She says there is nobody ringing there. I start pulling back, but then notice an employee walking up, like she's looking for customers to ring up there. She says she will check me out. So I push my cart back and tell the lady that's there that I found an employee and she's going to check me out. I tell her sorry. She looks at me, chuckles, and says, no you're not. Then she walks off.
Maybe I'm crazy and I don't know her, but I was pretty bothered by her response. I'm holding Jackson, Ali's in the cart and I'm trying to get out as soon as I can so we don't have another meltdown. This lady was probably 50-60 years old I'd say. It made me think she never had kids. It was much easier for her to move than it would have been for me. Am I totally in the wrong here? You can take a vote. If you think I am, that's fine. The irony was that she was wearing a sweatshirt that said, "Wicked" on it (obviously from the musical). I thought it was kind of fitting.
I had another fun situation yesterday. We went over to the park while waiting for Molly at dance. Jackson and Alison were playing and a lady sat on a bench next to the one I was and was watching her kids. We commented on a few things the kids were doing. Then she tells me that she recognizes me from The Children's Place when my daughter peed her pants. Wow. How embarrassing! Ali pees her pants and is freaking out and I'm trying to decide how to take 3 kids to the bathroom in the back and take care of her and if I need to buy new panties since I was totally unprepared. Now I will probably run into this lady all the time! I'm so embarrassed. I'm sure I was a crazy, frantic mom that day.
It's been an awesome couple of days for me :)
