Momma Bear

(This picture has nothing to do with my post, just thought it was cute and that you'd like to see one of my many "photo shoot gone wrong".

So, the other day I had to go to Wal-Mart to get a few things and of course I took my children with me. I like to go out early in the morning, first, because they are up dang early and we might as well and second, because going out and doing things gets them dang tired and they take really great naps. Well we weren't there more then 2 minutes and Lucy starts whining and crying and wanting to be carried, wanting to look at princess stuff (if she is crying and whining I don't let her look at stuff she likes), so I decide to just get the toilet paper and leave. Well, as we are walking to the cash registers, I have all the old cronies looking at me and at Lucy and wondering if she's lost or a brat or whatever (old people... love you guys, but sometimes....didn't you have children once?), but one lady.....says as she walks past me, "Gosh (the other word), shut up,mumble, mumble, mumble". Right in front of me! I don't know what happened to me, but I totally lost it. I am right there near the cash registers and I'm not really sure how loud I said this, but I said, "Haven't you ever had bad day.......Well, she's having one today!!!!!"

She didn't like that very much and by the looks of it I didn't get support from anyone around me.
I have never felt the mother bear come out in me. I have felt it in other ways, but never the protecting from another person, and I was mad and irritated at Lucy, but couldn't help but feel... protective. WEIRD! So now I'm mad at Lucy and mad at this old lady, my day started off really well. I did have to call me conscience (my mom) to make sure I did the right thing. (She always knows how to make me feel better.) She told me just wait until the kids get older and you have people coming to your door to tell you what your kid has done....not looking forward to that. I guess I can live with them having fits in Wal-Mart.

Anyone ever done anything like that?
