Beep, beep.

When Jack is blocking my path or is moving slowly and we want to get him moving, we always say, "beep, beep." He thinks it's funny and tries to do it to us . . . often trying to push us over while we are standing still.

We were in Target today and there was an older couple in front of us. The man was using a cane and his wife was helping to support him as he walked. I slowed down and just moved slowly behind them because there wasn't really a "polite" way to pass. You can totally see where I'm going with this, can't you?

Jack saw this as an opportunity to play the "beep, beep" game. He said, "beep, beep" and giggled with glee. I just tried to quiet him down. Luckily he hadn't drawn any attention to us . . . yet. When they didn't turn around, he said a little louder "BEEP, BEEP!" The woman definitely heard Jack and turned around, but luckily we were close enough to the door that I was able to say, "Yes, Jack, there are a lot of cars out in the parking lot, aren't there?"

This is totally off-topic-- but just wanted you to know that if you look for "it's a girl" on etsy right now, one of your announcements is the first listing!
