What did you say?

I haven't done one of these in a long while but this interaction was just too good for me pass on sharing. The scene, the local super Wegmans, the cheese case way in the back. I'm coming upon hubby and the kids after leaving them to their own devices while I changed the baby in the bathroom at the front of the store. I find Ethan fervently kicking on of the free standing refrigeration units while hubby peruses the yogurt and cheese selections in another unit. I take his arm and pull him away.

Me: Why are you kicking the cheese case?
Ethan: I'm trying to break my leg so I can ride in the cart!

While I cover my face in disbelief, and to keep him from seeing me laughing, he resumes kicking the refrigeration unit. Hubby spent the rest of the trip taking him off on "missions" to get groceries to keep him from trying (ineffectively) to hurt himself so that he could ride in the shopping cart.

Aside from retelling the story I'm still speechless.

Another chance to get it right.
Kind words of encouragement.
Thoughtful friends.
Little helpers who are finally getting the hang of helping!
Ibuprofen in all of its many fever and pain reducing forms.
Small mercies like the cover of the half full gallon jug of orange juice staying on when I dropped the jug and it bounced off of the fridge and landed upside down before falling on its side.
A foot rub courtesy of my little helpers.
