I have been reading my last few posts, and thinking maybe, JUST MAYBE, I have been being a bit dramatic.
What can I say? Sometimes Fabulous = Big Ole Drama Queen. But now I shall lighten up. For a while at least.

I went grocery shopping last night with the lovah and my little angel baby. Though some look as family grocery shopping as a Chore That Is Equal With Chinese Water Torture Only Worse Cause People Stare When Babies Scream And At Least You Are Usually Alone When Receiving CWT, we love to go shopping as a family. Violet will pick up stuff off the shelves, and Jason spends most of the time sneaking them out of the cart and putting them back. If something is on the bottom 2 shelves that we need, we let her get it for us…which usually takes about 7 tries to actually get the one we want, but she feels like she is helping.

Last night, though, she stayed in the cart because her Daddy, gem that he is, had already opened the bag of Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies. She has recently learned the signs for “more” and “please”, and since Jason cannot resist the adorability of Violet Signing and Grinning, she ate about 7 cookies while we were shopping.
7 cookies.
She still ate dinner after that, so it can’t be that bad, right?
(I am gonna use that baby sign language thing next time I go Rebecca Needs New Pretties shopping…)

Try telling me no. I DARE you...

I love shopping with Mike, too. Granted, we don't have a baby, but if you met Mike, you'd realize he is like one man and one child all rolled into one. Also, Jason opening the cookies is genius. I swear, joining a mom board is the best thing I did in preparation for a kiddo one day.

Yeah, my husband is a sucker for the sign language. Kyra was going through my purse today and found a lollipop I had stuck in there for her brother as a treat when he got his last shot and forgot to give to him (yes, I suck...pun intended). She handed it to her father, batted her blue eyes and signed "please" and "eat". Men are such suckers for their daughters (really, how many puns can I make in this one comment?)

I would take the cookies shopping with you too! Actually my kids tend to be alright (not to be confused with great) with any sort of shopping that involves mirrors like the fruit and vegetable section at the grocery store and in fitting rooms.

We all know cookies, chips, biscuits, waffles, and the like don't count when we are trying to keep our children quiet. It's more of a service to the public. We should get medals.

A service to the public! Ha! That is funny stuff.

I love those signs for more and please. Ohmigosh at that age the signs are SO helpful, and so necessary. And rarely does a baby cry and sign at the same time, so there you go.

I'm sure the cookies had nothing to do with it.

Sugar is totally underrated.

And grocery shopping is a LOT more fun with the whole family!
