This song goes out to all those stay at home moms walking the $ line with me. Cause it's a fine white trash line that we walk when on a single income with kids.
I had my white trash moment at Aldi this past Friday. (The location kind of lends itself to these moments I must say.) Daughter was pitching everything I put into the cart out on to the floor. Son was spinning in circles and talking to himself while ricocheting off of other carts. I was determined to get the grocery shopping done cause it was payday and fridge was B.A.R.E. Doing so without a sitter, well cause that costs dough.
When we finally finished and I was packing up my own groceries I had to set my daughter down on the floor for a moment. I turned around for half a second (I swear) and then turned back to pick her up and she was high tailing it towards the automatic doors and just about into the parking lot. I ran after her at full speed and was yelling "Get her, Get her!" to, I don't know - anyone! I got her of course, it was just the adrenaline of the entire shopping fiasco that caused me to scream out what likely sounded like "Git 'er, Git 'er!" while my fat ass ran out the door abandoning a cart of groceries. Sigh. Here's to you ladies. (Tipping back my Schlitz).
