You all recall that my kids are crazy, right?
Anyways. School starts up again here on September 5, so I took the gang out for a marathon of back-to-school shopping for supplies, shoes and clothing.
Sounds boring, right? Well, never in MY life.
First stop: I am speaking to a salesperson and Kid 1 asks for a loonie (FYI- that is a Canadian dollar coin) to buy something from a vending machine. No. Then Kid 2 tries, and so on. Then suddenly, I hear this hooting and hollering as if we were winners at the casino. They had found a coin and tried to buy a bag of chips to share. Instead, the machine spewed out 3 bags of chips and 4 Pepsis, and THEN returned their coin. Best. Day. Ever (according to them)!
Next stop: As I am at the checkout paying for umpteen pairs of school shoes, I hears giggle and the comment, "It's so big!". My Mommy senses are alerted. I turn to see my 3 children, all standing next to a mannequin at the exit, having unzipped it's pants and peeping inside to check out its....well...anatomy. Oh my.
Clothing shopping: my girls bursting into song and dance in the store ("You're never fully dressed without a smile!" from Annie). And insisting that we buy these outfits:
I may have caved. Dang, they're cute.
So that is the story of my day. As Big G told the hubs when he came home, "It was EPIC!"
Hope you had a good one!
