Friday after running some errands, I stopped at Albertson's to grab a few veggies and stamps. I needed stamps really bad and told the girl's a hundred times: "Don't let me forget the stamps!" I was chatting with DeAnna, the checker, trying to keep the girls from twirling the conveyor belt, and trying to get my stuff in the cart. I checked out, was in the middle of talking to Grace when I walked away and got in the Customer Service line to get my stamps. Josie came and tickled Willow and we stood waiting in line for a minute or two. Josie came back over with my cart, baby and diaper bag and said: " Emily, did you forget something?" I looked over and died laughing. "Uh, yeah, only my child!" I said. We had a good laugh and it was a good thing I was at Albertson's were everyone knows us by name. DeAnna, Josie and Catherine were all right there watching him, but I had honestly forgotten everything. I joked about it a few times after and then today when I went in for some milk, I was joking with DeAnna again about how funny that was. She said, "Yeah,the woman behind you thought you were the worst Mother and said she would have slapped you!" Well, that was a little harsh, but then she said, "Don't worry, I told her you were a very good Mother." I thanked her for her nice words and laughed it off saying, "Yeah, I bet she was the perfect Mother too and never did anything wrong." I just thought it was nice that she stood up for me. (Honestly, the Customer Service line was probably 20 feet away so it wasn't like Roman was in any danger with 3 woman loving all over him! It's just good to be reminded how imperfect I am and that mean ladies want to slap me!
