Shopping with Kids

Does anyone else feel like a meanie when you shop with your kids? For me, it starts at the door with, "No, you can't have the cart that plays cartoons, because that costs money." It continues with, "Is that a sometimes food? We can only buy 2 sometimes foods today..." Then there's the ever popular, "That's not on my list." or "That's not in the budget." Yes, friends, my 3 year old knows what a budget is and why we stick to it :)

The one thing that I always give on though is "Sandy" at Meijer. She is a ride-on horse who only costs a penny. Yes, .01!!!! Praise God for Sandy! I figure after all of that time of saying "no," my "yes" only costs .02 (and doesn't add to my waistline)...Not a bad bargain, friends.

Have a great day!

  1. Okay, this is too funny and I kind of feel bad. My kids saw Sandy for the FIRST TIME today and wanted to ride. But mean mommy that I am said, "No, we don't have time." Next week. Yes, they will ride next week!
