Monday the boys and I spent the day together. I had to run some errands in town, so they went with me. Since we were in town, I thought that it might be fun to go to Books-a-Million and look for a book about pirates…you know, research for our adventures. I spied the perfect book.
But, to get to it, you had to get past
the store’s super hero section. Needless to say, Hudson and Denton never made it past that isle. Not only that, they were finding things left and right that they were sure they needed … only the items were a little too pricey.
I finally convinced them that there were other things in the store that they might like better, with prices that I might like better. So,
we made the rounds. I told them that they needed to make sure they
were satisfied with what they picked. Finally, near the back of the store,
they spotted something that they would be satisfied with, which also happened to have a price that I was satisfied with.
They each chose a bag of Legos, that when snapped together, would form strange looking creatures with long fingernails and toenails…certainly not something you would want to meet up with in the dark…or the daylight for that matter.
They carried their bags of Legos to the front of the store, and we took our place in the checkout line.
When it came our turn, the nice young lady at the register asked, “Did you find everything you need.” To which I replied, “Let’s just say … we found everything.” Then Hudson said, “We are satisfied with what we got. But, we’re just not sure that our Mammy has enough money to pay for all this.”
I just smiled at that nice young lady, and entered my pin.

Very sweet. I always look forward to your posts!
What enriching experiences you’re providing for these boys. They are so lucky to have you for a mammy!
I always look forward to your posts.
Well, Mammy you’ve done it once again.
It is always a treat and a joy to follow your Chronicles.
Those young men have a great Mammy and I have yet another time in my life to revisit and renew our friendship.
What a blessing for me.
Oh, ask Piper if he’s getting ready to “herd the old people”. He is such a joy and so much fun to work with.
My what an adventure!
Tell the boys to ‘break a leg’ in their doggie performance. Ellie…one of the children in our little church also has a part in the play. Good luck to all.
