Today we went into a certain store that we don't usually go into. (There's a reason for that. It's not my favorite.) Our mission was to get a little kiddie pool for the backyard. The gym that's around the corner from our house has several big pools that we like to swim in, but I need Eric there to help me, so I wanted a pool that the kids could cool off in at home.
Remind me to never say, "you have yours hands full," because that phrase is overused. I think I've heard it about a million times (give or take a few). I know most people are just trying to be nice and make conversation (and they are right. I do have my hands full), but I like the, "your kids are so well-behaved!" comments even more. (As for the, "you look way too young to have four kids," I'm not sure if those are good or bad.)
One lady said to me, as I was trying to stuff all four kids and one of those stiff-sided kiddie pools into my van, "Getting the yearly pool. It must be summer." Exactly!
