"Excuse me, are you a mother?"

After celebrating Mother's Day with the family, we ran by Sam's to pick up a few things. On the way out my husband handed our receipt to the lady that stands at the door so she could check what was in our cart. I was staring off looking at something. As we started our way out the door, I heard these words, "Excuse me, are you a mother?"

"No, I'm not, but thank you." She had a cart full of gifts she was giving out to mothers. But I didn't qualify.

I thought I might escape the annual tradition of getting asked this question this year, but it wasn't to be. Thankfully my husband laughed and said, "That's awesome!" We laughed. Crisis (and tears) avoided. I just wanted to buy some toilet paper...
