So I am walking through WalMart tonight to pick up some eggs and brownie mix with KT. We make it through the doors and about 20 steps on the inside. We see this little girl who was maybe 5 - and that is pushing it - carrying a 6 pack of Modelo beer. She very proudly taps her father (I guess it was her father) on the shirt and offers it to him. He takes it and puts it in the buggy. Now for those of you that are familiar with Wal-Mart, it is a BIG store. So the beer/eggs/dairy are in the very back. This poor little girl walked to the back of the store and got her dad beer. And she was a tiny little thing! Bread, maybe I can understand that because that is about 4 isles in, a can of green beans which is about 6 isles in is pushing it as far as I am concerned! So KT and I walked to the back of the store to the beer aisle and sure enough... on the second shelf there was one case of Modelo missing. Unbelievable. I am still trying to wrap my head around this one.

I get so angry when I see something like that! I won't even let Doodle walk without either holding my hand or holding onto the buggy. I would never let her go anywhere in ANY store, much less Wal-Mart by herself! But, then again, I have been told that I am somewhat over protective.

I found your blog while trying to find info on our new daughter at Nanchang. I just loved reading your blog. I was wondering if I could ask you a couple questions if you have time! Your daughter is just a cutie, but I have to thank you for posting that they are well taken care of. This is our second adoption from china and it is NOT any easier. Thank you for any info you can share, especially where your friend has lots of pictures at the SWI!!???

I wish I could say "unbelieveable" - -but it is truly a sad state when children have to "fetch" beer for the parents!!! ;(
