* Names Have Been Changed To Protect The Giggling

I know I posted this on Thursday, but I've submitted it to Navel Gazing's Very Funny Friday!

If you've already read it, act surprised, then go check out the rest of the giggles.


My sweet new (to me) ride has finally arrived, so Monkey and I took it out for a spin yesterday.

As we were meandering through the aisles of my local Target, I overheard another mom reaching the ubiquitous parental end point with her preschooler.

"Susie*, get over here now or I will make you sit in the cart."


"I am giving you to the count of three."


One... Two...

And knowing what was coming, I held my breath and silently begged Monkey not to do it.

Alas, to no avail.

He smiled his megawatt smile and proudly shouted,



On a side note, it's really hard to admonish your child when you're gasping for air and it's coming out,

"Nuh-uh-oh! St-t-t-t-t-aaaawp! Mon-k-ke-e-e! Sh-sh-sh-uh!"


  1. That's too funny! My daughter does the same thing:-)

  2. He will make a good parent!

    HAHA! *I* would have probably done the same thing! I love messing with people at grocery stores!

  5. I think he's got it figured out, doesn't he?


What's up, Pixel Peep?
