Our tenth stop was Payless because M needs dress shoes for his choir concert tonight and first communion next weekend. While we were there, another family came in on the same mission.
I don’t know what happened, the store was small. But I guess they weren’t staying close enough to her, because she started really yelling at her two kids in the store.
This must have shocked my kids because they could not stop talking about it when we got out of there. In the car, M told me this:
“I’m glad you’re my mom because you give me like five to ten chances before you get cross… If she was my mom, I would be sad. I would play tricks on her like Matilda did on Mr Wormwood.“
Then he gave me an elaborate plan about how he would hide a hose in her bed so she would get all wet. I laughed so hard, it kind of salvaged my whole day.
