Spills, Spills, and more spills!


Just as a little side note, I have now finished the Twilight Saga and loved it! Now I'm back to my usual blogging world...I need to catch up! So I'm starting with a story of my poor car ride back home from Target. So, I spent FOREVER in Target, first of all. I love that store, but I really was not intending to be there for over an hour! At the checkout, Carter really wanted these little Spree's candies in a little plastic container. I told him since he did so good in the store (didn't run away from me once!) that he could get them but he could only have one of each color after lunch. So, we went to the food court afterwards, which I also love since it's so cheap, and got a hot dog/icee combo. On the way home, he was trying desperately to take the lid off his icee and handed it to me saying, "Open, Mommy!" But I said we would wait to get home and he could eat it with a spoon. So, he reminded me of his treat and I was trying to open the dumb thing while I was driving and it exploded EVERYWHERE! So, I pulled over so I could at least get them off my lap and stuff. When we got home, I unbuckled his car seat and let him climb in front with me while I finished my conversation with Justin. All of a sudden I hear, "Uh-oh" and feel warm liquid seeping into my pants! He had peed all over the seat, already covered with Sprees...yuck! So, I said, "Let's go inside and get something to clean this up and change your clothes." As I was getting out, I grabbed my purse, which the Icee was leaning against and the Icee spilled all over the middle console!!! I couldn't believe my luck...thank goodness I have a little one who enjoys helping me clean!

Holly! Not that its funny, but how funny. I can relate to having a day like that one. My recent Target trip ended with me trying to pay while Makenze screamed like a manic because I wouldn't let her stand up in the cart. Getting dirty looks from others, screaming child, and being rushed out of the way. Fun times.

Wow... What a day! I'm sorry, I wish I could say you wont have more days like that one, but that would be called a LIE! Sorry!!! I have had severl of those days and I end up going to my room for quiet time (a nap) while the kids are all locked in their rooms! lol How are you doing anyway? I'm glad you liked that Twilight books, I LOVED them too! (; Congrats on finishing them!

Um, I'm sorry but I totally laughed. I probably wouldn't have if it were me, but I can't imagine you getting super frustrated, just cause you are so nice all the time. So I just picture little nice Holly having this happen to her, and it's funny. Really. Sorry though, and then we went to Target yesterday and I totally thought of this story the whole time we were there!
