But when it comes to our children, his attention to detail is somewhat lacking! For example, last week we were at the mall running errands. I sent Brad to Chick fil A with the girls, while I finished up what I was doing. About 30 minutes later he called me to see if I was about done. I still had to run to the bookstore but
he was bored they were finished, so they all came along too!
We all walked to the other side of the mall to Walden Books. The book I wanted was on a display table so I didn't even have to look for it! I grabbed my copy and then told Brad to watch the girls while I paid. This whole outing should have taken all of two minutes...
Unfortunately the man checking me out was really slow...and Brad got distracted.
As I waited for Mr. Watching Grass Grow to scan my coupon. 15 times. And then (since I lost my rewards card) painstakingly type in my email address one.letter.at.a.time. Whew! I noticed my husband out of the corner of my eye, flipping through a magazine.
Me: Um, honey, do you know where your children are?
Brad: *crickets chirp*
two seconds later...
I finally managed to purchase my book (it took less time to read it than to buy it!) and then make it home with all of my kids!
