I have a theory, I believe that the greeters at Wal-Mart send the following subliminal messages:
For children (at least my child): Be naughty! You are the devil and this is your playground!
For adults: Next time, wear pajama bottoms.
Anyway, we were at Wal-Mart and my 4-year-old had taken the greeter's subliminal message literally. She was everywhere.....much to our delight....and ironically, she was in her pajamas.
Well, Big C and I ran into some friends and began chatting. At this time, Sassy began running wild circles around our legs--around and around she went. After a while, she realized that she was getting the feet on her pajamas dirty.
She said, "OH NO! Look at my feet! Their gusting! What am I going to do?"
Me smugly, "Well, I guess you need to ride in the cart now."
Sassy, looking horror-struck that she might have to get back into the dreaded cart, said, "Wait! I know!" She then proceeded to lay on her stomach, feet in the air, and started commando crawling across the floor.
Me, "Sassy, get up....get up...you are getting even more dirty!"
A lady happened to be walking by at this time and said, "Well, at least it isn't her feet anymore!" Of course, all our "good moments" are witnessed by at least one smirking stranger.
After pulling Sassy to her feet, she was unhappy to see that Ariel, on the front of her PJ's, had a dirt black-eye. She is learning that sometimes you just can't win.....
