Where did we go wrong?

Tonight after dinner Tom took the kids over to the little playground here at the dorms. Right next to the playground is a little convenience store with some basic groceries.

Tom was trying to get a little reading done while the kids played. Suddenly he looked up and didn't see Jackson. He asked Joni, "Jojo, where did Jackson go?" She replied, "I don't know dad......oh, wait, there he is, he bought us something!!!"

Tom turns towards the little store and Jackson is high-tailing it out the door with an enormous bag of pretzels in his hands, so large he could hardly get his arms around the bag. Tom has never seen Jackson run so fast. He was trying so hard to get a clean get away that his little legs couldn't keep up and he face-planted it, falling right on top of the bag. Tom hurriedly grabbed Jackson and the bag of pretzels and quickly walks into the store, where there are four college girls laughing their butts off.

He used to be such a sweet, honest little boy. I never saw this coming. :)

You can blame the Sowards genes, we just can't resist the junk food. (The fact that it was pretzels and not Twinkies must be the Balderree influence.)

It hurts to laugh that hard when you are sit, but it was still worth it. Thanks for the laugh. What a funny little dude.
