AH was being a complete angel in the grocery store this evening. No fits. No whining. No asking for something I would surely say “no” to.
And when I told her she didn’t need five packs of Jello she simply said, “Okay, mama” and we moved on.
We were enjoying ourselves as we rounded aisle 5 when AH began to wave and smile. I asked her, “Who are you waving at?”
She said, “Mama, I’m waving to that lady.”
I turned around and there was an elderly lady pushing her cart and smiling back at AH.
She was turning onto the same aisle we were and as she neared our cart, AH began waving again.
I was beaming because my little girl was being so sweet and well behaved.
Then, in true AH fashion, she smiled, continued waving and said loudly,
“Hi, old lady!”
Either the lady was hard of hearing, or so nice that she pretended not to hear what AH said. I played it off as I smiled and continued to the next aisle.
Once we got all the things we needed and got in the checkout line, the same lady got in line behind us.
Kids say the darnedest things. What has your kid said that made you want to hide under a rock?
