~Should I be embarrassed???

Hubby decided to park on the "side" of the grocery store while I ran in for one, well maybe three things. This is what they did in a short amount of time...my 16 year old was in the shopping cart, my 12 year old was in the "baby seat", my 5 year old was hanging out of car window with his spider man glove ready to climb, my 10 year old was out in the parking lot taking random pictures, my 14 year old was with me and hmmm...where is daddy??? In the front seat either laughing at the kids or talking on his cell phone! They still don't understand why I tell them I can't shop with them around... embarrassing!!! But that's what makes life exciting :)

~Blake's Scratch

Had to share a funny story on Blake. Last night him and I were laughing, dancing, tickling, etc. Well, I ended up scratching him on his neck trying to hug him. It was an accident! Really!!! :)

So, we found the baby band aid in Austin's scout 1st aid kit to make him feel better because the smallest scratch or anything he freaks out. So, during prayer we blessed his neck that it would feel better.

I Picked him up from school today and he was hyper and giggly. I asked how his day was and if he learned anything new. His response was, "I told my teacher and the class that my mom stabbed me on my neck!" I had to pull the car over to find out how he went from a "love scratch" to "stabbing"!

Nice- I can't wait to talk to his teacher tomorrow! Those kids love me helping them in the class and now I have to explain to them when I go back in...and his teacher! These are the days we have to laugh, hug them and remind them to not exaggerate!!!
