No Hitchhiking Allowed!!
We had quite a weekend, but thanks to the suggestions and links that so many of you wonderful friends have sent, things are getting better (Joyce, Pam...thanks!!) This morning I decided to take Ida and my daughter to Build-A-Bear. Ida loves to hold my daughters and I thought it would be fun for her to make one herself. She has already decided to name it Pop, after my FIL (father-in-law). So I am getting daughter ready and something catches my eye. It is Ida. She has escaped the house and is in the driveway. I run and take her hand and ask what she is doing. She replies that she is going to hitchhike home. Sure enough, her thumb is out and ready to go. I gently explain that we are going inside and she is upset because for some reason she wants to hitchhike (it sounds exciting she says). So, I tell her there is no hitchhiking allowed. Ida says "Well, I don't see a sign." hmmmm... "It fell down" I explain (I am going to hell for lying to my MIL!). "Oh, we better go inside." And in we go. And now we are dressed and off to Atlanta to Build a Bear. Wish me luck!
