Slice of Life Stories hosted by the
Shoe shopping with two almost-two year olds:
"All done now."
Squirming out of my lap.
Throwing the shoes on the floor.
Grabbing at the new shoes on their feet.
Sprinting through the bra department with Dadda chasing after.
Relocating the shoes on display.
Climbing down off of the chairs.
Dropping to the floor not wanting to be held.
The stress on my husband's face said it all. Yet, I forced myself to laugh out loud. What else was I to do? My glances around the store met eyes with another mom with three girls sitting calmly around her, all staring in our direction.
"Sorry," I mouthed. "Want to trade?" I jokingly said.
"Oh, please don't be sorry! I'm reminiscing. I have triplets." Pointing to the mature girls shopping patiently. "And we have been there many times before!"
Two little girls. One BIG word: Exhausted.
And we left the store without buying a single pair of shoes. This means we will try again another day. Rest up. And bring reinforcements! (Oh, Grandma!)
