Shopping: Boys vs. Girls


Usually, Tim and I try to divide up the errands over the weekend and go separately with only a kid or two with us to make life easier. However, Daniel is in this horrible annoying stage where he just whines and fusses the whole time if anyone goes anywhere without him. It’s actually pretty heartbreaking when he notices people are getting ready to go and he goes and gets his shoes and coat and tries to put them on. So this morning in order to avoid a toddler meltdown, we all packed up and headed to BJs together to pick up some bulk groceries. The trip itself was rather uneventful (which is exactly what we hope for) but the ride home struck me as funny. The boys passed out almost immediately on the way home and Isabelle was chatting and singing away in her seat.  Tim also would have passed out with a nap on the couch upon arrival home if Isabelle hadn’t suckered him into a game of “Go Fish.” I guess it doesn’t matter what age you are, shopping is exhilarating for girls and exhausting for boys!

Daniel insisted on wearing his hat like this.


Good night, Henry.

  1. Isn't it sad when "shopping" refers to hitting up BJ's? It used to be so much more...

    1. The saddest part is how excited I now get about going to BJ's.
