Plastic Bags

Finding time to share my stories has been tough the last several weeks, but I managed to out-do myself as mom of the year yesterday.  I decided to take the kids to the grocery store on the way home to pick up a few things for dinner.  We were lucky enough to snag the one and only 2 seater racecar grocery cart at our local HT (I may have left tire marks as I skidded into a parking spot and jumped out of the car to claim it).  Everything went surprisingly smoothly in the grocery store until check out.  I was busy helping bag the groceries when I heard a scream and looked over to find my almost 3 year old daughter with a plastic bag over her head.  My 13 month old son was laughing hysterically and helping hold the bag. Everyone seemed to stop and stare directly at me - not sure why they were looking at me when my daughter was the one screaming.  The poor high school boy ringing us up wasn't sure if he could laugh or not until I started laughing (and took the bag off my daughter's head) and apologized for the excitement.
Mom of the year ...
