This morning on the way to school with JD, we decided to get a little more of our Christmas shopping done. I knew exactly what I wanted to get and I have not been able to find coupons for the items so I left my coupon bag in the car. JD and I were walking across the parking lot, when he screamed... "Mommy your upon book." (He never says the q sound") I told him it was okay because I did not have any coupons for the things we were getting but that answer was not good enough for him. He told me I needed it in case I saw something else I needed. I finally convinced JD that I had a very short list and we would only get what was on the list. He accepted that answer finally. So we went through the store got our items, all of them... (thanks to the stock people who went to the back to find the Toy Story Mr. Potato Head) and made our way to the front. We checked out, staying under out budget and started heading out the door. When the cashier gave me our receipt, he handed me a catalina for $5.00 next purchase. I remembered that I had one of these catalinas from another trip so I started hunting through my purse to find it. JD asked what I was doing and I told him that I had forgotten to use a coupon so I was searching in my purse for it. I handed the catalina to the manager at customer service, and she handed me cash back for my forgotten catalina. I was very excited that Target did not give me a hard time. As we were walking out to the car, JD informed me that I should have put the catalina in the coupon book so I could find it next time. I guess I should take his advice. It would have been easier to find than in my purse! Oh well!
