HOW COULD YOU EVER MISS THIS HUGE THING???

WELL, SOMEHOW I MANAGED TO DO JUST THAT! BEFORE WE LEFT FOR OUR TRIP I HAD TO DO SOME LAST MINUTE SHOPPING AT WAL-MART AND I HAD THE KIDS WITH ME. WHEN I HAVE THEM, THEY USUALLY RIDE IN THIS BIG STROLLER, SO I CAN THROW EVERYTHING UP UNDER AND THEY CAN HAVE THEIR SNACK OR WHATEVER ELSE IT TAKES TO ENTERTAIN THEM WHILE I SHOP. I GOT TO WAL-MART AND OPENED UP THE BACK TO GET THE STROLLER OUT, BUT IT WAS NOT THERE!!! FIRST I THOUGHT, OH NO SOMEONE HAS STOLEN MY STROLLER. THEN, I THOUGHT WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD SOMEONE STILL A STROLLER! SO, I CALL RJ AND MY MOM TO ASK IF THEY MIGHT HAVE TAKEN IT OUT OF THE CAR FOR SOMETHING, BUT THEY BOTH SAID, "NO". NOW, I START BACK TRACKING TO FIGURE OUT THE LAST PLACE I USED IT AND IT JUST HAPPENED TO BE WAL-MART. I THOUGHT THERE IS NO WAY I LEFT THIS HUGE STROLLER AND DIDN'T SEE IT OR HIT IT WHEN I WAS LEAVING, BUT THAT WAS THE ONLY PLACE I COULD REMEMBER USING IT. SO I CALL THE WAL-MART, BECAUSE I WAS TOO EMBARRASSED TO GO IN AND ASK IF THEY HAD FOUND A STROLLER IN THE PARKING LOT, BUT I GOT THE RUN AROUND ON THE PHONE. I FINALLY DECIDED TO GET THE KIDS OUT AND GO IN AND WE GO STRAIGHT TO CUSTOMER SERVICE AND GUESS WHAT???? MY STROLLER WAS SITTING THERE ALL BY ITSELF JUST WAITING ON ME TO PICK IT UP:)!!! I WAS SOOOOO HAPPY TO SEE THAT THING! THERE IS NO WAY I COULD DO MY GROCERY SHOPPING WITHOUT THIS! EVERY TIME I WALK UP TO THE CHECK OUT COUNTER THOSE LADIES SAY," GIRL, HOW IN THE WORLD DID YOU FIT ALL THIS IN THAT STROLLER?" I CAN GET $200.00 WORTH THE GROCERIES IN THAT THING! I STILL CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW IN THE WORLD I MANAGED TO DRIVE AWAY AND NOT SEE OR HIT IT, BUT I DID! I'M JUST SO THANKFUL THAT SOMEONE TURNED IT IN AND I HAVE IT BACK! I'M NOT SURE IF SUCKING THE PHONE UP WITH THE VACUUM OR LEAVING THE STROLLER WAS WORSE:)!!

I just want you to know this story CRACKED me up! I was rolling! I know how you feel though! I feel like I am losing my mind with one so I can't imagine with two the same age! Thanks for the laugh! I needed it!

GURRRRL, you crack me up! How did you not run over the big rig??? I'm impressed!!!! Glad that you were fortunate enough to have found it safe and sound. It is amazing how much brain power it takes to handle more than one kid isn't it. :) I can completely relate to you. :)

I'm still wondering how you fit that many groceries in that thing with two kiddos in there. That is hilarious.

Nicole said...

Hilarious! I'm not sure what's more funny...the fact that you left this monstrosity behind or the fact that you can fit so many groceries in a stroller!

Dal and Kim said...

Your story has really had me rolling. You are so funny. Walmart is just a place that weird things happen. One day I let Nathan play with the keys to dougs truck well, it never crossed my mind that he would push the lock button. I buckled him in and closed the door. So now I am locked out with my child in the car with the keys. Yes this really happened. I automatically go into a panic. I am talking to him thru the window asking him to push the buttons. Well, he did push the PANIC button. So not only am I locked out now the alarm is going off. He finally pushed the unlock button and we quickly left walmart. I could not believe it happened.

I have another CF husband questions....why did Tricia have to wear gloves everyday? I could not find anything on that.

You are one lucky lady!! I think this beats the cell phone in the vacuum by about 10 times!! I understand though...I lose my mind sometimes with Conner too!

That is too funny! I want you to post a picture on you blog next time you go shopping. With the boys and the groceries. Atleast you don't walk out without 3 bags of groceries, while I'm running to the car, 2 people run behind me giving them too me. I felt like the biggest dork ever, ha!! The boys are so cute. Ya'll look great!
