Because I'm a stay at home mom, when my husband gets home from work I am ready to
Let me tell you, it is not easy taking 4 kids out in public. Especially when I'm by myself. I'm always forgetting SOMETHING. Shoes, diapers, coats... Once I had to go back for one of the kids that I left at a friends house! Ever try and nurse a baby in the stall of a public restroom? Or explain why your son brought a pocket knife to the gym play center?.....I think I may grow closer to God in those times (praying that my children wont embarrass me), then I do spending an hour at the alter ;)
So this past Monday we decided to take everyone to Walmart. The kids needed new undies. I needed a reason to get out of my pajamas.

So while we were looking around... she spotted the bra section... and I started praying!

Just as I said "Don't close that door yet!" *slam* He jumped out of the van and hit the top of my head with the door! I was soooo mad! All I have to say is thank God for the cart guy that was standing close enough to be a witness.... and the prayers. They may have been what saved Ethan's life that night!
All in all, that is how a typical night out with the gang goes. Some embarrassing comments, a dirty diaper, and a headache! Lots of fun!
At least the kids were all happy with their new underwear. When Evelyn heard me asking Ethan how his fit she
