A Little Silk Sunshine.

Yesterday Griffin and I went to town to run a few errands.

We stopped by Michael's because my friend Cyndi had shared a coupon with me to get 40% off any one item. I found THE most darling thing ... this apple cider wooden barrel "vase". It was $12.99 and with my 40% off coupon it was about $7.75.

I looked around for some flowers to go in the barrel and I found these great fall sunflowers. I really like them because they are a bit grungy looking and they look really nice in the barrel. I put them on the little table in my entry way and it adds a little bit of fall ambience.

After Michael's we went to Jiffy Lube to get my oil changed. It's located in Walmart's parking lot so while they were changing my oil, Griffin and I walked over to Walmart to pick up a few things.

Griffin and I had a pretty funny "conversation" after returning to Jiffy Lube ...

As I'm paying and the man is explaining exactly what they did to my Jeep:

Jiffy Lube Man (JLM): We changed your oil

Griffin: Mommy I have to pee-pee in the potty (quietly)

Me: Just a second Griffin

JLM: We changed your oil filter

Griffin: Mommy I have to PEE-PEE in the potty (louder)

Me: I know baby, just a sec

JLM: We checked this & this & that (hurry up man!!!)

Griffin: MOMMY I have to PEE-PEE in the POTTY (even louder)

Me: Okay sweetie, I'm coming (I'm thinking man don't you hear him)


The entire Jiffy Lube waiting area was full and everyone busted out laughing. Oh my gosh ... the young man that was checking me out and filling me in on what they did to my Jeep obviously does NOT have kids. I was trying to hurry him along, but he insisted on telling me each and everything they did to my car.

It was hilarious ... and gave everyone a good laugh. And yes ... he made it to the potty in time. That's my big boy!

That is funny. Poor Griffin, though, having to wait until "clueless" finished with you (sorry JLM you obviously don't have young children). I'm glad he made it to the potty. I love you little cider barrel and the sunflowers were the perfect touch. The whole arrangement is so you.

Now THAT IS a funny story---its one you can imbarrass him with later when he needs humbling--like relate it to his girl friends, who will love hearing it.
