I might have told a bold faced lie to the cashier at Target this morning, but I'm not sure. We were in the checkout line, Brady was exhausted and at the end of his rope, but he was quiet and calm. The cashier asked me how old he was & I told her 5 years old. She then asked if he had some sort of a problem. I responded with no he didn't have a problem, but then asked her why she would ask me that. She said she assumed he had a problem if he still had a pacifier/blanket at 5 years old. I knew what she was trying to say although she chose the wrong words, but I still answered her question with no as Brady doesn't have a "problem." Good grief! People can be so nosy at times. I firmly believe that Brady's special needs aren't "problems" so I insisted on telling her that he did NOT have a problem. Was that a bold faced lie? She looked at me like I was crazy!
