"I've got a problem!"

Captain Crunch, Cocoa Puff, Cheerio and I went to Target last night. After stuffing our basket with all of the things we needed, okay wanted, we stood in line to pay for our goodies. The cashier has helped us before and she is usually very chipper. But last night she was not chipper at all...she looked really down. I asked her how she was. She answered fine, but it was just an automated response, so to say. Even though I knew something was wrong, I couldn't think of anything to say that would seem to help. Well, thank goodness for Cocoa Puff...she took care of it just by being herself :)

"Mom, I've got a problem." As I type it, I can hear how she said it, but you probably can't. She sounded very desperate.

The cashier immediately started giggling. Even if the the cashier's smile didn't last all night, I'm glad Cocoa Puff was able to get her to smile briefly.

Are you curious what Cocoa Puff's problem was? Well, I was too. So after we paid and were walking away, I asked her. Drum roll please.....Cocoa Puff needed popcorn! What a great problem. :) Just in case you're wondering - she didn't get any popcorn. We had just eaten dinner and she had ice cream after her dinner.

Obsession: Making people smile...why not? You should try it. If we all tried to make someone else's day!

Confession: We spent too much money at Target last night :) Who doesn't spend too much money when they go to Target?

  1. Love your blog! It's adorable, and so are the nicknames you've got for your family... I think if it were my family, I too would be the fruit "loop".

    I think trying to make people smile/laugh is a great obsession to have! Keep it up!



I love reading your comments.
