Say What?

Yesterday I was shopping in Wal-Mart for some boxes to mail Christmas ornaments that were ordered, and in accordance with my nature I went to the craft section. For some reason I can't stand to leave Wal-Mart without having at least LOOKED at the craft section. I know that they never have anything new, but I HOPE that they do, or that they will have some awesome clearance price on an item I have been wanting for a while. Alas, I generally walk away from the craft section empty handed, but today I knew I needed tacky tape and glue dots (Cole used all of my glue dots making a paper model of the earth--couldn't use double sided tape--Oh No! That might not work! Had to use the expensive glue dots....I digress....).  As I was deciding which glue dots would be best for me, another lady came down the same aisle and started a conversation with me, "I just can't help but come down this aisle every time I am here."
Ok, so she sounds a lot like me.  I laughed and nodded my head in agreement.  She then looked at Benjamin and said, "You are good to be getting started so early."  I had to think about what she meant and I came to the conclusion that she thought I was starting to make a scrapbook for him AND she thought he was my first child.  I laughed again and said, "Oh, he is number 4!  My first child has a 3 inch thick scrapbook, but the other 3 are lacking!"  She looked at me strangely and said, "OH! Number 4? Wow.....you will be 92 before you get his done!"
Personally I am thinking that if I don't get him one made by the time he graduates high school, it isn't happening! And by the way, I will be a LOT younger than 92 when he graduates!

LOL...that's awesome! :) And take it as a compliment that she thinks you look young enough to be having your first kiddo (which is totally true, you do look that young!).

I had to share this, I thought you might relate!


I can't pass a craft store or aisle without stopping!
