SOOOO Naughty!

My naughty boy
Yesterday was a big shopping day! I guess the exclamation point isn't really needed, as it was not one of fun or joy. We had to go to Walmart for the necessary things... diapers, wipes, food... etc. Right off the bat Kies got in trouble. Someone had put a thing of Rolos on a thing of clothing, he found it, and opened it before we could do anything. Then he kept getting on top of the food in the cart. He also decided he would "sing"(which means yell) LA LA LA LA LA over and over- causing people to glare.
(The look on his face says it all!)
This just made me even more mad. We were getting ready to check out when I realized we needed to get lotion... so we made our way over to that section. Jaran was there as well, just so you all know. He had the cart with Ans and Kies... mine was full of food and Brensyn... who demanded to stand in the cart instead of sit in the seat. So while we were over by the lotion, Kies said- Daddy let's get some bandaids! It was the "feminine hygiene" section... yes, the "big bandaids" were pads. That was actually cute, and made me a tiny bit less mad at him. But he managed to make things bad again! We were on our way back home, but had to stop in Powell. I went into Pamida and they didn't have what I needed, so we went to the family dollar. They didn't have it either... but Jaran called and said to come get McKie cause he needed to potty. So I did. After that, we went to get some cards by the check out. We paid for them, and then got in the car. Not too long after, it started smelling like aftershave or something like it. It honestly started making me sick, so by the time we got to Byron, I was ready to find out where the culprit was. I looked all over the floor, nothing. I looked at Jaran's deodorant, not that. Then I looked back at Kies. I had asked him what he was playing with, and he had said- I'm not playing with anything... very convincingly, I might add. So I looked at him, and he had a tiny bottle of "BOD" in his hands. Jaran didn't have any of the crap, so I knew- he had stolen it. For those of you who don't know... he's a klepto. He's always stealing toys from his cousin's house. It's getting annoying- but now- he's stolen from a store. Once we got home, he was in time-out for about 30 minutes... standing up with his nose against the wall. I'm not sure if it really worked! So we have to go back today and pay for it, and also figure out a way to make him understand that just because he wants something, doesn't mean he'll get it!

This is the youngest picture I have of him being naughty. 1 year old, going after the baby.

About to hit Brensyn when he was a baby

This is not recent, but a shot of him in time-out

Another instance of him being naughty... got into the Eucerin Cream

I just knew how this story was going to end up! Sorry about the rough shopping experience. That's hard when you don't know how to make your child understand right from wrong. Hailey's taken to lying lately and we don't know how to explain to her that she's not telling the truth and that it's a bad thing! The pictures were hilarious and cute - even if he was being naughty!Have a better day today! Love ya!

Oh my goodnesss...just hearing that Wal-mart story stressed me out ...did you hear Elder Ballard's talk about young mother's at general conference? I would just read it over and over and over.. :) I know its hard being a mom, I can't imagine what it's like with 3. I better toughen up! :)

Ha ha ha. That story is so funny. I'm sorry that you had to go through all that. I asked my mom the other day "How on earth did you ever go shopping with seven kids?" I can't even imagine it, I have my hands full with just two.
If it makes you feel any better Callie tried to steal some applesauce from walmart today. She grabbed it out of the cart and was holding it under her shirt so I couldn't see it. And she's only 19 months!

hahahaha I am sorry I just have to laugh! Oh the joys I get to look forward too!

I hate when the kids act out in the store. So sorry. That is too funny about the BOD stuff. Hang in there, sista. We're all in the same boat. :)

Ohh, like everyone else that totally sucks. A.J. drains me whenever we go shopping, although lately he has been pretty good. I don't know if I'll be able to pull it off, but I plan on leaving A.J. at home after Jax is born. And hey, I'm free the week, adam is on days. You have my number, so give me a call.
