Yuck

At the grocery store today, Colin asked the lady sampling yogurt smoothies, "May I please have a pina colada one?"

"Good job asking so politely!" I told him. Then he turned around in the cart to take the little Dixie cup, bobbled it, then spilled the entire contents into my open purse.

I freaked out a little (!), but the sample lady was so nice and insisted I use her table to clean up the mess. So, I emptied the contents of my purse onto her cart, and wiped yogurt off my cell phone, checkbook, tampons, pens, lipstick, etc. It even got into my wallet and onto my credit cards. It's going to smell great in a few days.

"Oh, no, Mommy, I'm so sorry that happened to you," said conscientious Anna. "I am SO GLAD I didn't do it!"

Colin said, "Can I have more smoothie?"

Your audio version on the phone last night of this episode cracked me up! Of course, Colin was interested in more smoothie...

Thanks for the laugh!! But I'm sorry it happened. Colin really reminds me of Lyra!

Ha! That's kind of great, though, at least he didn't spit it on the sample lady! ;)

Ewww ewww ewww on what it's going to smell like in a few days! And I think that's exactly what my kids would have said, only my son is the conscientious one. Even at 11, my daughter's first words would likely be "can I have another one?" As an afterthought I might get an "oops, sorry mom."

That is pretty funny! Both of their responses made me laugh. Sorry for your purse though. I think you should go buy a new purse and wallet to make you feel better!
