Ebay Item

Stumble Upon Toolbar

Have y'all seen this? A mom of six (I promise it wasn't me) puts a lot of Pokemon cards on Ebay that her kids sneaked into her grocery cart.

She details the hilarious trip through the grocery store with all six kids. You have to read the whole thing for a good laugh, but here is an exerpt:

Once at the store, we grab not one, but two shopping carts. I wear the baby in a sling and the two little children sit in the carts while I push one cart and my oldest son pushes the other one. My oldest daughter is not allowed to push a cart. Ever. Why? Because the last time I let her push the cart, she smashed into my ankles so many times, my feet had to be amputated by the end of our shopping trip. This is not a good thing. You try running after a toddler with no feet sometime.

Since posting these cards up for auction, she has gotten over 77,000 hits to her blog in one day! Which is slightly more than I have had here, you know, EVER!

Her tale sounds hauntingly familiar. Though, I do question the authenticity of her report because she did not have one single mention of anyone needing a bandaid or visiting the restroom. Shyeah! Right. How likely is that?

I saw this at Amy's Humble Musings.

Aaah, yes, Holly. How could I forget the good ole scatter poop? You can't leave home without it.

LOL! This is so funny! She's making a good chunk of change!

Wow, 142.00 for pokeman cards. I'm not sure but I think she just made a killing. But I think she deserves it too!! This never happens to you at the grocery does it?:)

Hmmm.. maybe we'd better see if there are any around here.

I just gave away about 10 cm of pokemon cards.

I question her story too.
Well, who cares?
