Going shopping with four kids is always… something. From nonstop talking to touching everything, there’s always something to get onto the kids for. Occasionally they hold the door open for someone, but more often than not, they just let if slam shut on the person behind them.
Today I ventured to take the kids to Joann’s Fabrics. All four of them. By myself.
And I totally nailed it like a boss. Awwww yeah!
While we were there, I caught this snippet of conversation between the oldest boys:
TheWiseOne: “Hey, look! There’s a Frozen poster! It’s about $6.”
Z-boy: “That’s highway robbery!”
The rest of the trip went well. We were able to shop at several stores with less than five meltdowns. K-girl only tossed her shoes off a few times, and we were fortunate enough to find them every time! Best of all, no one crapped their pants! (Although there was plenty of gas.)
Driving home was fun, as usual:
TheWiseOne: “Blah blah blah Pokemon. Blah blah blah Pokemon. Blah blah fire-type Pokemon blah blah blah.”
TheLittlePrince: (calling out the colors of the trees) “Yellow yellow yellow yellow yellow yellow yellow…”
TheWiseOne: “Blah blah Pokemon blah blah blah level blah.”
TheLittlePrince: “Yellow yellow yellow yellow yellow yellow yellow yellow…”
TheWiseOne: “Pokemon blah blah blah, right Z-boy? Blah blah Pokemon blah blah.”
TheLittlePrince: “Yellow yellow yellow yellow yellow yellow…”
Me: (accidentally takes a turn too fast)
TheWiseOne and TheLittlePrince; (in unison) “Woah!”
Like I said, “Like a boss.”
