Mama, Help Me!
If I've told y'all this story then I apologize if not then great. Not to long ago Monkey and I were out shopping for Sweet Pea (she was home w/David). Anyway I'm sure I've mentioned before that Monkey does not like to shop, he hates it but I make him tag along because you know I can't exactly leave him at home even if he does scream like a banshee at times. Ok well we're looking around Target and his patience (what little there is) is now running thin and he's tired of looking around; oh and he's also mad because I have him strapped in so he can't make a jump for it. Anyway he's getting mad and can't unbuckle himself and what does he do--he starts screaming "help me, help me! Mama, help me!" Ummm can we say embarrassing, and if you're wondering why here it goes. First off my son is white w/blondish-brown hair and I'm Hispanic so I have a nice dark tan like all year w/black hair and brown eyes. So I'm thinking great people are going to think I took this kid even though when look at his face and mine we look the same, and luckily I had pictures in my purse to prove that he really is mine. Eventually he stopped but not before a couple people laughed while others kind of looked at us like what a little brat. Either way I can totally laugh about now and I did then when we left just at the time it was a bit annoying. All I know is that he says "help me" all the time and he uses it right but that doesn't mean I want him constantly screaming it. Oh well I guess I'll just have to teach him something else to say like "I want out!"
