Today I felt like showing a little MI pride while doing our errands. And it just so happened that I was stopped by a Target employee… actually she listened in on my correction of JoeAnna (“you need to listen to mommy because I want to protect you and keep you safe, if you choose to obey and listen to my voice – you will be able to choose a treat in the check-out line, if you choose to disobey and you do not listen to my voice – you will forfeit your reward and you will not get a treat in the check-out line”). She followed us a ways and then asked if we were really from MI and where; she was from MI too! She encouraged me as a mom saying it was so nice to hear a mom talking to her child that way – that we reminded her of MI just by our example.
Way to go Michiganders! We miss you!
