Friday was a stressful day for me, S had her first 2 hour visit with her mom & I had to go see a man about some money he owed me. #1, the first 2 hour visit was scheduled for nap time and #2 I HATE dealing with people who owe me $. :)
So, we get to S's visit and her mom comes 15 minutes late and then tells me she can only stay for 1 hour, not 2. OK, the was a little frustrating because I needed that extra hour! I wanted to spend those 2 hours dealing with the person who owed me money (by the way that all worked out just fine, God made it very easy on me and I got the money that day without any problem) AND I wanted to go to VG's who was having a triple coupon sale up to $.99 without 2 kids!!! So, I ended but going to deal with the man about the money first and then went back and picked up S. BTW, because they were late I offered to not pick her up until 1:15 pm if they would like that and they said yes.
So I pick her up and it is so nap time. BUT apparently I am a gluten for punishment because I am still determined to go to VGs! I can't pass up my first chance to have my coupons tripled!!!
So, anyway, as I have stated several times, it is nap time. Thankfully I found a cart with the little car on the front and the kids are thrilled so away we go. After a while, my little 2 year old monster decides Kobe cannot be in the car anymore or she is going to scream. As you can see she is all about sharing. My darling 7 year old was nice enough to stay out of the car so she wouldn't scream. I was very very thankful.
We get to the check out and there is no bagger and I wanted to make sure all my coupons tripled so I decided to ask Kobe if he wanted to bag since there wasn't much he could destroy. Kobe bagged up almost all of my groceries, very nicely I might ad, and then as I was paying the man in line behind me asked me to give Kobe $2 he was handing me for his hard work. At first I said no, but he said he wanted to give Kobe the money because he was such a great helper!
Kobe of course was thrilled and thanked the man for the $. As we walked out to the car Kobe and I talked all about how great it was that God sent that man to tell Kobe what a great job he had done and to give him that money. As I got in the car I had tears in my eyes thinking about God wanting to bless Kobe like that. I could have given him $2 for helping me, but coming from a stranger it just meant so much more! Kobe was so proud of himself and I was really proud of him too. I hope Kobe continues to see God show up in his life that that everyday. Seeing God doing something like that for your child is just amazing, I am so thankful for a God who is real!

And here is my haul from VGs~! Just under 30 items for under $30!!!!
Better than shopping at the dollar store for about the same price!
