After the Dr's visit I had to run to Wichita for some fundraising fliers for Alex's school for a fundraiser D through together. 45 minutes there/45 minutes back. Then I dropped off her scripts and ran to Alex's school in the next town over. By this time the kids had been in the car for 2.5 hrs and I dropped of the fliers to the receptionist who met me outside since she knows I have other kids. After that I raced back to our house to pickup Dominic off the bus. We were home for a few minutes so I could let Damien stretch and feed Mia. Then we hopped back in the van.
We went to McDonalds for lunch since they weren't done filling the prescriptions for Mia which I HATE going inside with the kids but I really had no choice unless I wanted to drive all the way back home. McDonalds at lunch sucks. There are tons of kids and old people plus hauling in numerous kids is hard enough. So with Damien on my hip, Mia in the carrier and Dominic grabbing my pocket I ran inside with them. Oh the looks, and the comments. We sat down and 3 little old ladies flocked over to the table. "You've got your handsful" was the first comment as we sat there. Then "you better listen to your mommy and eat" said to Damien who just laughed at that one. "wow, they are awfully close in age." another said. Then after all this unwanted attention as I was trying to go out the door a lady walks up and says "I was just saying to my husband that I'm glad we're done with THAT phase." She was like 70. I was thinking, you're happy to be old?!?! Then as I am opening the door to leave she says, "is this one a girl?" I said yes smiling. "Oh you just had to have one more to get that little girl didn't you?" OH MY! I had to jump at this one. I said, "well actually they have an older sister in grade school and we plan to have a few more someday." Her jaw nearly fell to the floor and she looked alittle confused. LOL What is it about old women and me? Wasn't it customary in their day to have bigger families?? Is our era just too retarded to do it because we don't live on a farm in the middle of nowhere? I don't get it. It felt GREAT to say something back though. Made my day.
