wants to go grocery shopping by herself? I'm not sure what kind that is, but I know I'm that kind! I took my 10-year old son with me to run all of my errands today, which included grocery shopping. Goodness, what a trip! We went to a bank inside of a grocery store first...he took some of the beans out of the pot holding pens. What was he planning to do with those beans? I do not know and do not want to know. Let's just say he put them back before he got the chance to act.
Next, we went to Costco (ugh!) and he "avoided" people. He did some funky moves and went way right or way left and swerved a lot. So, he did stay out of their way, but in a 10-year old boy way. LOL!
Next was the GF store where he took one of every single sample they had. The pumpkin cake was delish!
Wal-mart was our next stop (double ugh!) and he needed TWO chocolate milks. Yes, two. Yes, needed. He paid for them himself, so okay. They were both gone before we got out of the parking lot.
Last was the grocery store. He tried to be helpful and I tried to let him. Sometimes things take longer when you're being helped. But, the good news is that he asked for plums, peaches and apples. I almost said no (not on my list) until I realized he was asking for fruits! Duh!! Don't want to discourage that! He got them. LOL!
On the way home, he talked non-stop. I have no idea what he said cos it was just talking...and talking...and more talking. I guess that it is good that he wants to talk to me. I did realize, tho, that I really like my quiet time and I missed that today. The irony is that I just interrupted him and he told me that I "never let him talk." I guess we were in different vehicles all afternoon.
Okay, time to go watch Boise State Univ school Hawaii!
