true story

So, here's an email that my great aunt DeAnn sent to me...soooooo true sometimes!

AN OLD MAN WAS GROCERY SHOPPING WITH HIS GRANDSON. THE TODDLER WASCRYING AND AT TIMES SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF HIS LUNGS.AS THE OLD GENTLEMAN WALKED UP AND DOWN THE AISLES, PEOPLE COULD HEARHIM SPEAKING IN A SOFT VOICE...'WE ARE ALMOST DONE, ALBERT... TRY NOT TO CRY, ALBERT... LIFE WILL GET BETTER, ALBERT...'AS HE APPROACHED THE CHECKOUT STAND, HE CAREFULLY BRUSHED THE TODDLER'S TEARS FROM HIS EYES AND SAID AGAIN,'TRY NOT TO CRY, ALBERT... WE WILL BE HOME SOON, ALBERT...'AS HE WAS PAYING THE CASHIER, THE TODDLER CONTINUED TO CRY AS A YOUNGWOMAN IN LINE BEHIND HIM SAID, 'SIR, I THINK IT IS WONDERFUL HOW SWEET YOU ARE BEING TO YOUR LITTLE ALBERT.'THE OLD GENTLEMAN BLINKED HIS EYES A COUPLE OF TIMES BEFORE SAYING . . .' MY GRANDSON'S NAME IS JOHN........ I'M ALBERT..........'

I kinda cheated tonight on my doc's orders and carried corban in his car seat, plus a huge sack of toys, in from the car tonight because I didn't want to wake him up. and of corse there weren't any close parking spots left so I had to park further away...so I was in essence saying all those things to myself as a waddled under all the unfamiliar weight. oh, and p.s. if you're reading this mom or dad: don't kill me because I did it...you'd have done it too I bet :) Love ya'll! (as ben puts it in his emails.)

And last but not least here are some funny old people bumper stickers:
Florida: God's Waiting Room
Sometimes I Pee when I laugh
(and my favorite) The Snap crackle and Pop in the morning aint my freakin Rice Crispies!
gnight!

Haha! I love that little story! And now, with 2 kids, I'm feeling like that more often than not, when we go out!

You be careful, you - we don't want to hear about you ripping your incision open just because you didn't want to wake Corban! ;)
