Snakes at the Post Office

Today I realized something. I must need to take my kids out in public more. Evidently they don't realize that it's NOT OK to crawl around on the floor of a public place.

Let me back up a bit. Today the boys and I went to the Post Office to mail some packages for husband's business and ebay sales. Normally, this would be a fairly uneventful occasion, right? Not so today. While I was filling out customs forms, the boys started looking in all the nooks and crannies to investigate. There was only one other customer and she to had a preschooler, so I thought we were ok. Then, child 2 started crawling around on the floor doing his monster impersonation. It all went down hill from there. Child 1 thought that looked like fun, but wanted to take it to the next level. He wanted to be a snake. So then, the kids really got into it and went down on their bellies and started hissing. I am still filling out a custom form, but I stopped and ever so tightly lipped told the children to stand up and stay still. Miracle of miracles, they listened. I finished my transaction and the postal worker gave me my receipt with a slight smirk on his face as he told me to have a nice day. I was very greatful that we had mailed the bulk of our packages at a box store yesterday. Why can't they have tv carts at all errand locations?

Have your kids ever gone bonkers in a public place?
