Going shopping is not one of my favorite things to do but having only a couple of weeks before Christmas, it really is necessary. I thought it would be smart to take Ashlynn with me, since she always goes with her mom. No one told me that I should have brought a stroller or used a cart or tied her to my leg. Before we went in I said, "Stay right with NONI" and before I knew it she was running through the clothes racks and laughing up a storm. My phone rings, I'm yelling, "ASHLYNN" come here. All I hear are giggles and her saying "Where Are You" in her singing tone.
I know I should have been mad but her face was priceless. She would poke her head around the corner and take off.
This is how children get kidnapped, I know that so being a grandmother I'm stressing out. I'm running after her, she loses her shoe and keeps laughing.
Since her mother works for DFAC's, it keeps running through my mind that someone is going to call her office to report me! Finally I pull her to the side to have our little talk about you cannot leave Noni's side, you must stay with me, someone is going to take you away from me, etc.
Once I pay for my purchase we go on to the next store where the shopping cart is the first thing I find. It's becoming clearer and clearer why God has young women have babies! You still have to be able to run.
