A Miraculous Thing Happened Today!

I was out to lunch with Ari today in my neighborhood. I was standing at the cash register at this sandwich shop, when a woman gasped as she looked down at my feet.

"Your shoe is untied!" She said in horrified voice. "Do you want me to tie it for you? I mean, you're pregnant!"

It only took me a second to reply:
"Yes! Thank you so much!"

With that, she bent down, tied my shoe and then paused.
"Do you want me to double knot it?"
"That would be great!" I said stifling a laugh as she saved the day.

In fact, her handy work is still in place.

  3. That is too awesome! Just the other day I was struggling to carry all my grocery bags to the car while still keeping a hold on Grace. A wonderful man offered to carry my bags for me. I was so shocked that I didn't even respond, he just scooped up all my bags and followed me to the car. I am so thankful for helpful people!

  9. Oh god, my husband was my designated "shoe bitch" during both pregnancies. He not only tied my shoes, but he put them on. Along with my socks, too.
