What to muse about today?

January 4, 2012

on January 4, 2012

I think we take Teagan shopping too much.  Maybe because taking her along on errands is a nice time killer.  Stu usually is the one to find some trivial, some not so trivial, errand to run.  Bread?  Can always use more.  Hammer?  Can’t seem to find ours.  Shoes?  She’s outgrown hers.

But I think we take her too often.  The past few days, every time we get in the car she asks if we’re going to the store, going shopping.  Doesn’t matter if it’s Stu or I, or the two of us, putting her in the car.  It’s always the same conversation.

Teagan:  “We going store?”

Us:  “No, we’re going to day care/LaLa’s/the park/Aunt Wendy’s/etc.”

Teagan:  “We going store?”

Us:  “No, honey, we’re not going to the store.”

Teagan:  “We go buy something?”

Us:  “No, we’re not going to by something, we’re not going to the store.”

Teagan:  “But we need…  things.  We go store?”

      LOL! She didn’t even see the toys in the grocery store, thankfully. But she wanted ALL the candy. “Have it?”

      Hopefully, she’ll become a smart shopper and find deals, and not just shop for shopping sake.

      Teagan hasn’t gotten much past the baby dolls yet, and no where near accessorizing. She also doesn’t have the expectation that she’ll get to leave with something, anything, although she will ask to “have it?” and “need it” and “want that!”.

  3. Hahaha!!!! Too cute, too funny! I feel like I don’t take Chloe out to the store enough… It’s just so much easier to go when I don’t have her. Plus she usually flips out if I have to run a quick errand after i pick her up from daycare. Once she gets in her car seat it is her expectation to go home and snuggle with mommy or daddy and watch a little sesame street and decompress :-)

      Oh, it is easier without one of the babies! So much easier. And you get to actually look at what you’re shopping for, browse. Not do an in and out dash, hoping that they’ll stay cute and behave. Not say something embarrassing like “I don’t like that man”, and make you want to slink out of the store, apologizing all the way. Thankfully there are very few instances of her doing that, and most times you can redirect the comment to something much less hurtful, “yes, honey, i know you don’t like green shirts”, or “beards, they’re itchy”.

    Tonight at the store we were at the checkout and she told the lady there “I like your lipstick.”

    She’s *almost* always a darling at the store.

    • lisasff says:

      That was so cute! She is a total lipstick freak… I just wish she wouldn’t eat it .

      And that could be why she goes to the store so much, she’s *almost* always good when we do, which makes the getting in and getting out of the car, the cart, everything easier. :)
