I was in shock when I looked at my little man as he was putting the Hubba Bubba Tape Gum in his pocket.
I told him to take it out of his pocket. Put it back. Did he want the clerk to call the police? I went on that we probably should be going to church tonight. That I probably should tell the Pastor.
Before paying I searched his coat pockets again to make sure all was clear.
As we went to the car, I told him that in the future maybe I should be going shopping by myself. He definitely wasn't happy with that. I got in the car and called my parents. My dad talked to my little man who then apologized.
When we pulled up to the house I explained that the puzzle he has of Moses holding the rocks, The Ten Commandments, it says not to steal. God does not want you to steal. That is what you were doing.
