ONE. If any of you didn't know, we had our first ever yard sale this Saturday. The hubby was kind of against it, but we needed to get rid of some junk as well as all of the big baby items. So, it went really well. Most of the weirdos stayed home, thank goodness. I was just surprised at how people really want something for nothing. It is called a 'sale' not 'I am giving everything away for free.' We made a little over $300 which I was happy about. The items that we didn't sell, I packed up and donated. I feel like a new woman with less clutter and some cash in my pocket!
TWO. Benadryl. I guess as I mom I should know to always keep some with me. Well, yesterday we decided to hit one of the million Fall Festivals and go pumpkin picking. We were having a great day....pig races, hayrides, petting zoo, the works. We sat down towards the end of the day to eat some delicious apples....when all of a sudden Christopher starts screaming. Crying uncontrollably. He got stung by a bee! That little stinker wanted a bite of his apple and got him right in the hand. I didn't know what to do. And of course at that moment my husband decided to go get a drink and I was alone with the kids. One sceaming in pain, the other one trying to run away, drinks spilling, apples being thrown. Pure insanity for 3 minutes. So, we put some ice on it and headed for home. But, of course, the traffic is dead stop. I finally got him calmed down...but we had to make a pit stop for Toys R Us. That was the best medicine of all!
THREE. Still on the Fall Festival from yesterday. Chris was waiting with Christopher on line for a go kart type ride. Well, a little girl ran ahead and jumped on one of the go karts. Then suddenly a man ran over to her, yanked her off of the go kart and started yelling at her to wait in line and to wait her turn. I wasn't there when it happened but my hubby was. He assumed the man was the girls father. Turns out, it wasn't. It was the father of another child who was also waiting. Would you just die if a stanger did that to your child!! Chris said he almost punched the guy on behalf of that little girl and her mom. I know if he acted like that to one of my kids, Chris would have not taken it lightly. Please people, act your age and never touch a child that is not your own!
