Gee-Gee Sandy gave Summer this outfit the first time she met her...and now it fits!  This picture was taken the morning of the strawberry incident....!
 I've been meaning to write this story down so I don't forget it, and haven't gotten a chance until now!  We were at Walmart on Sunday afternoon, and Summer was in the back of the cart and Colton was in the front.  With Colton's big carseat, I can't see Summer unless I move to the side of the cart.  Anyway, as I was putting the groceries in the cart, there were two items that caught her attention, as usual....goldfish crackers and strawberries.  As I put each one in the cart, she started to open it and I told her she couldn't open it now but that we would have some later at home.....(this is common for me to say this on past shopping trips, and she has usually been a good listener....)

As we were nearing the end of our shopping trip, the back of the cart was pretty quiet.  All of the sudden, I heard a very loud "YUM" come from the back of the cart....the kind of voice that told me she was trying to get my attention.  As I peeked my head around Colton's carseat, I saw a little girl COVERED in red strawberry juice, half eaten strawberry in hand...!!!!!!!  My face must have been pretty horrified, as her face immediately turned guilty and she looked like she was going to cry.  That little face combined with the strawberry covered little girl sitting among the groceries made me have to duck back behind Colton's carseat to laugh--I couldn't keep it in!  I tried to remain serious as I told her what she did was wrong, but inside I was cracking up at the sight of her.  No further punishment was necessary in this case as her face told me she understood and it would not happen again!

In hindsight, her "YUM" to me seemed to be a cry to be "caught", as she didn't have the will power to say "no" to the strawberries, but she really didn't want to be disobeying.  She is such a sweetie, and I will always laugh when I remember this story!
