Shopping at our favorite buy-in-bulk store, Jason and I were having a debate as to whether or not we should purchase the Asian salad. Our two middle children found a near-by plastic storage building that was set up to entice people who have way too much stuff. My girls were running in and out of the building, but I didn’t think they were hurting anything. In fact, I kind of forgot about them in the middle of our “to take or not to take the salad home” discussion.
So I didn’t notice the lady that walked up to the storage building telling her husband, “Look, we could sure use one of these . . .” She flung the doors open, and like a jack in the box, up popped my two children! Throwing her hand to her heart, she stepped back and exclaimed, “It comes with children. I don’t want one that comes with children!” We, they, and every passer-by had a grand laugh over the whole thing!
Wa ha. No, seriously?!?
@Robin, Seriously it happened and seriously we laughed our heads off, but I suppose that was a given!
Oh now that’s funny!
Ha ha, you have to love it when others have a sense of humor with children. That is so funny Esther!

Lol! Esther, I really look forward to reading your blog. 🙂
That is hilarious! What a great story. It is nice to hear the woman was not angry. She must be a mother and/or grandmother to have reacted in such a humorous way. Thank you for sharing this and linking up to A Day In Our Life Blog Hop.
Have a blessed day Esther!

That is funny! I agree, so nice to see someone with a sense of humor. Someone who knows how kiddos are and doesn’t want to punish them for it:)
That is so funny lucky she didn’t have a heart attack at the sight of the kids in the box..lol
Oh my goodness!! Just so funny 🙂
while reading your story, I waited to see if the lady had a heart attack! I am glad you shared the story – children are a blessing.
Hhahaa – I love moments like that! Such a cute post!!! 🙂
I KNOW! I too was glad she had a sense of humor and that her heart was strong. 🙂 Thanks guys!
This is so sweet!
OMG! That is to funny! I love that family photo to!

Shopping with four children can be hard, especially when they’re full of energy. I often shop at night so my husband can watch the kids for this very reason!
OMGoodness… That’s hillarious.

Excellent! How fun that the woman thought up a funny line so quickly.
