than to try and run errands with the kids right after school. They love to go to the bank- seriously!- mainly because my bank has dedicated 30% of their floorspace to a toy filled area of fun. And they give the kids gummy bears. Who wouldn't want to go?
I'm waiting in line, ready to do my thing, and my little ones run over to the toy area. Some poor loan officer has her desk directly next to the Nintendo game station- and she starts talking to Annie. After saying hello, Annie says, "Nice to meet you! Now go get your work done!" The crowd erupts in laughter and I shrink down and pretend I don't know her.
Something must have given me away though--- maybe it was Annie's shrieks of denial as I grabbed their hands and made a quick exit. They are both sleeping now..... I better go get my work done.
