Friday the 13th

In the time it took to put on my pants this morning Claire painted her feet and hands with nail polish and drawn on her hands and arms with a magic marker.

Lively that one.

After work Lynn had Caroline so I took Claire to the grocery store.

While at the store, we crossed paths with a mature lady wearing a tube top that was headed in a southern direction.

Of course Claire noticed. She ran towards the lady (I’m estimating Claire got about a yard away) and pointed. At the top of her healthy lungs she yelled “Boobies Mama! She Nakkey! Need CLOTHES! Nakkey! Boobies! Mama! Get her DRESSED!”

Lord help me. Humiliated doesn’t even begin to describe it.

The lady looked around confused, I can only hope she didn’t understand Claire’s baby-talk. I apologized and grabbed my precious angel-baby and scurried away like a roach scurries from light. I felt exactly like I imagine a roach feels too.

Just when I think I can’t be humbled more than I am….I go to the store with my children.

We spent a long time petting my father-in-laws new to him, secondhand farm dog. Caroline loves him. His name is Seymour.

Photo cred to my mother-in-law

Then I tried to help Lynn figure out how to switch the conductors on a plug in a tractor, but we ran out of daylight.

Any ideas friends?

While we were busy, the girls locked themselves in the cattle trailer.

It is kind of like a big aluminum playpen, with a certain aroma

Happy Friday friends. TGIF!

  1. The lady with the tube top should have been the one running to hide. Claire had that one right.

      Ha-ha. I’m trying to teach them to be kind…but they are incredibly, brutally, gleefully honest.
      I tell Caroline on a regular basis that it is sometimes better to be kind than to make sure everyone knows you are right…but she just pats my arm and says something like “Im just trying to help them”


  2. Well, honesty is a good thing. LOL too funny, except maybe not for you. I’m sorry. Sounds like shes quite the character
