In the I’m Not Even Kidding category… which often accompanies the Shopping with Kids category…
Getting groceries at Kroger.
Wincing as I realize I have 25 items in the 12 item lane.
Itty Bit playing with the debit card swipe thingie.
I glance behind us and mentally brace myself for the trainwreck that is about to happen.
Itty Bit peeking around me.
(holding breath… shooting warning flares out of my eyes)
No honey. No.
No honey, not right now.
Honey, later. Not now.
Honey, wait a minute. Don’t talk.
So my obedient son did just that.
Instead of talking… he looked around me again and began signing.
Except… that some signs are just patently obvious.
Like when your 5-year old points behind you, then circles his finger upward around the top of his head like he’s a Dairy Queen dipped cone.
I couldn’t bring myself to look at the man behind us. I was mort-i-fied.
(frantically grabbing his hands)
Honey no! Later!
He lasted all of two steps away.
Then he turned on his loudspeaker voice and made a grand announcement.
But Mommy! He looks like a Wise Man!
So that’s my story behind the mugshot. At least for today!
