Another lovely shopping trip to Walmart...

WHOA!!! So the last two times I have been to Walmart, my little Brayden has been frustrated that he can't just run around the whole time. So when he is in the cart, he causes trouble. Last week he started throwing everything I put in the cart OUT! So as I am telling him that he is going to sit in time out, he picks up the carton of eggs and dumps them out. Seriously. So today I attempted another shopping trip and this time he was better at first (after many reminders of the last trip and what would happen to him if he behaved that way again). So near the end of our trip the kids were helping me put things in the cart, but it started to include things I wasn't asking them to put in. Brayden threw in a carton of blueberries and yes, it dumped out everywhere. But the worst was that I did not know it until I nearly slipped on blueberry juice because my kids were stomping them into the ground!!! How can I have ANOTHER boy you ask? I just don't know...I know for sure I am going to do my grocery shopping at night now, without my kids!!!

So true!!!! I haven't taken all three to the store, and I don't plan on it. In fact it has probably been about one year since I took the first two together to the store. It is hard! But I love the third boy (sometimes maybe more, shh!). Good Luck.
