I went to the dreaded Wal-Mart yesterday with all 4 of my troops (never again.) As we were cruising the cereal isle I looked at Mercer and saw him chewing on something.  I knew it wasn’t gum, because that is OFF LIMITS at our house.

So I asked him what he was chewing on….

Moose:  “I found some fruit snacks on the floor, under the shelf.”

Me:  “Uh Moose, are you eating the fruit snacks off of the floor?”

Moose:  “Yep. Mom they are really good!”

Me: “Seriously?  Why did you eat them off of the floor?”

Moose:  “I was hungry.”

Me:   “Well I guess that makes sense.”

My mom was with me, she was gagging and giggling a little, while I just stood in the Wal-Mart isle and thanked the Lord for giving me a spunky, sassy, 3-year old, without a germ phobia!
