Yellings in the grocery store

We were at the grocery store with one of those stupid car carts because they had been banned from them for a month earlier and I figured that it was time to try again.  We were in the canned foods aisle picking up food for the food drive, when I heard Tornado E shouting at the top of his lungs.

Tornado E: Stop touching my penis!  Stop touching my penis!

I investigated to see Tornado S had his hands on the wheel, and Tornado E was just having fun.  Ever have a moment when you couldn’t figure out if you wanted to scream or beat a child?  I pulled Tornado E out of the cart and quietly explained why we don’t say things like that in public when they are not true.  Then he marched next to me for the rest of the grocery trip.

There has to be an easier job out there.

    I’m sorry I’m laughing. But since it didn’t happen to me, it IS funny! (Don’t worry — my boys get me like that in public all the time. It’s a boy thing!)

    Am I laughing but only because I’ve been in those moments & there is nothing else you can do except wonder “WHY, LORD? WHY?”

    FUTQL~ I don’t embarrass easily, luckily.
    jane~ I’m sure I’ll laugh at it too. . . . one day.
    Evenshine~ Exactly!!!
    jc~ Seriously. And to think The Husband thinks my job is a walk in the park. *manic laughter*
    TKW~ Laugh now . . . .
    beth~ Or you think, “Lord, help these boys survive to manhood because it’s a 50-50 chance right now.”

    Being a stay at home Mom has it’s perks, ie hugs and kisses, giggles and smiles, but to the rest of the world it is a thankless job that requires no skills. No one understands the boredom and frustration that goes with it or the fact that there are no days off, not even sick days. No pay, no social security. So why do we do it. Tiny hands and feet, trusting eyes and unconditional love in other words hugs and kisses aint so bad.

    oh boy. I’m sorry. I hope he marched to the beat of your drum the rest of the way. 🙂 In hindsight, it is kind of funny though.

    insider~ You just said what our last marriage councilor told The Husband. It’s a great job, but it is full of frustration, monotony, and boredom.
    joz~ He did, until we were leaving and he hit me in frustration. Buddy, you’re in time out the moment we’re in the house.
