Shopping with Sadie...
As we filed down aisle after aisle in a train-like row of carts, with traffic jams likely anytime anyone paused, Sadie paused her attempts of twirling, escaping holding hands, and jumping up before landing and giving me a good hard yank, to look behind us. She noticed the line. Thus began the following conversation:
Sadie: "They're following me!"
Me: "They're not following you." At this point we rounded the corner and entered another aisle.
Sadie: Glancing behind us in the new aisle: "They're following me!" Looking over her shoulder: "Help! Help me! Help!"
Me: "They're not following you! They're shopping."
Sadie: With a giggle this time: "They're following me."
Our Walmart shopping trip wasn't just for food though. I realized upon going through the girls' closet that Sadie had no pants above a size 4. She's a size 6 now. Since it is starting to cool off, and since we've apparently adjusted to the tropical weather (at least we've kind of adjusted) and 65 feels pretty cold after three months of 85+ with 100% humidity, I decided we needed to buy her a few pairs of pants, on the off chance that it someday falls below 70 degrees during the day.
I also saw something rather disturbing before we left the girl's clothing section. There was an underwear display that I ran across full of thongs (not the shoe kind). They started in the size below Sadie's size. Does anyone else think that's totally insane? She's three and they're selling thongs in her size? At the rate Mae is growing they'll likely be in her size by the time she's two. Do they actually sell those things? Yuck.
