Shopping With Kids Tips – I am so not serious!

Who wants to go shopping with me?  

You better have on comfortable shoes and a water bottle in that purse.

My favorite aunt taught me to keep a little peanut butter in the car to sustain you while shopping.

Will someone please come and cut my Internet cable and give my iPhone a bath?

I need to not be able to have the “worlds mall” at my fingertips, and on sale!

I could not think of any solid reasons to not buy this $25 dollar dresses from Mod Cloth.

Then I wore that dress with black tights and black tissue thin turtle and my friends husband called me, “Elf on the Shelf” all evening.

I CAN think of 25 reasons NOT to take three boys shopping.

I really was proud of his ability to “self soothe” and go on with our day.

We resorted to bribing them with electronic devices so that I could shop.

This is what happens when your kids are electronic deprived.

I do know that I have been very, very good this year.

Shut up.


My Christmas decor is not going to get put away if someone doesn’t come and disable my Internet.

I have reasoned this out and sticking my fingers in the garbage disposal would be counter productive.

I can’t pack the ornaments away with my fingers missing. Heck, I still have suitcases to unpack from our trip to Punta Cana.

    That picture of you is SO cute–I mean the one of you as a little girl! I’m not a shopper so all this focus on shopping is as tiring to me as all that campaigning stuff was. When is enough ever enough?
