But I don’t like…

Have you seen that commercial with the girl in the shopping cart at the grocery store with her mom. And she keeps telling her mom she doesn’t like everything she picks up to buy.
Well last night my mom took Johnny to T Ball for me and when I called to check how it went she told me a story that reminded me of that little girl.
When I left yesterday morning I knew there was a chance I may not be back at the house before T ball but that we were in charge of snacks so someone had to get them their even if the boys didn’t stay to play. So I left all the car seats at the house. Later that morning my mom called and while we were talking I mentioned that I had a meeting and that Timmy was sick so he couldn’t go to T Ball but that Tom was going to have to get the snacks there anyway. So she offered to pick up Johnny and take him AND the snacks for me. After asking a hundred times if she was sure she was feeling up to it, I agreed and thanked her. So when I got off work I headed towards the Dr’s office for the meeting not knowing what traffic would be like. Just as I arrive Tom calls…I have the boys baseball gloves!!! He says he’s not sending Johnny if he doesn’t have a glove. So I tell him to hang on and I call the coach’s wife and ask if they have an extra. She says yup no problem. Problem solved and YAY for me for actually making a call like that, a HUGE step for me.
BUT when they got there, the extra glove was light purple. My mom said Johnny just sort of stared at the purple thing that was being handed to him. The coach told him, “that’s all we got, bud” and he replied, yah you guessed it. “But I don’t like purple.” OK so maybe he’s a bit spoiled since I bought him a glove in his favorite color, but it was the best priced one! Anyway another mom piped up that they also had and extra and it was black, a much more acceptable color for Johnny and all was fine. Now to just figure out who that mom was and thank her at the next game!
