I stalked a mom at Target

It's true, I stalked a mom at Target. I was so excited I couldn't help it! You see, the three littlest and I were checking out the plate sets on clearance because somehow every plate, bowl and cup I own are getting broken, when around the corner came a white mom with 4 black children.

My jaw almost hit the floor because I have lived here for almost 9 years, and in all that time never seen another transracial family. (The town we live near is actually quite small even though we live near a large metro area.) After I shut my mouth and tried to look like I didn't notice them and was staring, I spent about 2 1/2 seconds as they passed and continued on through the store thinking that I need to meet this woman.

So I stalked her to the front and accosted her in the check out line. Which is what all normal people do, right? Anyway, she was very sweet and didn't think I was a freak, and gave me her email address and said that she would love to do a playdate. I am so excited about it I could almost barf! So yeah for new friends (hopefully)!

Oh, and Truitt got his first tooth this week. Can't believe it, the kid's only 5 months old and he has to go and do something so grown up! He's my last one, isn't there some unspoken rule about how your last baby has to stay little for double the time of the others?


  1. Well you know, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do - stalking included! ;)

  2. IF I saw you at Target I'd stalk you down too... :-) I feel the same about ANY adoptive family!
