Mama, pleeeese!

IMG_3642This is R3 on our grocery shopping excursion during his Track Out. Once I got  him past the most annoying kids carts that are like navigating a Hummer limo down Wake Forest Road, I thought I was going to be fine. Get him a free cookie and we’d be good to roll. I had put off grocery shopping for too long and was in it to win it this trip. What terrible planning on my part.

I was overcome by a  flood of grocery shopping memories. The time I had to abandon my full cart to get my screaming kid out of the store, the constant, “mommy can I have this,” the one who threw himself on the floor because he needed a hot wheel and so on.  We’ve all been there!

A long time ago, as a stay at home mom, I came to the realization that I needed to embrace the joy and privilege of being home with my kids. It was not an enlightened moment but rather necessary for my survival. I survived and know I will survive the next three weeks.

  1. We never get out of the store with out those frosted cookies-my kids LOVE them, I find them….offensive!

  2. I feel the pain during summer vacay when I do Target/Walmart runs. Child 2 “must” have this or that. School is a very good thing!

  3. PS-Those frosted cookies are probably made with Crisco! Ha Ha.
