You thought I was going to show you a couple of super-awesome things I bought online?
Aww heck no.
Y’all know how tempting it is to make a quick run to the store during this hectic season, right? I mean, even if you have *ahem* company?
Reason #519 not to take your kid shopping with you:
When you spend the week before telling him he has to wear chapstick otherwise his lips might crack…
He might suddenly recall that and wait for the prime audience to throw himself dramatically in your arms and wail loudly,
“I’m craaaaaaacking! Mommy, I’m craaaaaacking!”
Yes dear, I can see that.
Reason #520 not to take your kid shopping with you:
When you take him out in public while he insists on wearing his dapper little hat… he gets a fair amount of attention from the ladies.
(forgive the Cheeto lips)
He spent most of the time racing around the store, then suddenly acted shy around the young checker.
“I’m a little shy right now,” he said as he wrapped his arms around my leg.
She smiled at him and I told him to wave goodbye.
“See you later”, he said.
“See you later”, she said.
He walked nearly to the doors before turning around and hollering at the top of his mighty lungs,
“and don’t let the bed bugs bite!”
I think I saw a rush on Depends once the front half of the store realized what he’d said.
Like I said, online shopping - a beautiful thing.
