I will do everything humanly possible to forgo grocery shopping with all 5 in tow. I avoid it like the plague. Its not that they misbehave, but seriously, the aisles of common supermarkets just arent geared to an entire basketball team traipsing though.
…And its inevitable that my quick list of 6 things that I need will turn into at least three 10-minute conversations with curious strangers who want to know “All they all yours?”
(no, Im just taking the local preschool on a field-trip to the grocery store).
….And those cute “car” grocery carts that my 2 and 3 year old want to drive, were clearly invented by someone who has never tried steering them down narrow aisles. Those things need an entire city block to make a turn!
Henceforth, on day 11 with my better half out of the country in Cuba, we’re running a little short on supplies. I mean, what kind of mother lines her kids up for a conversation like this one:
“Look guys, we have half a roll of toilet paper left. So….if you could limit it to a couple squares every time you have to go, that would be so great!”
Im a far cry from the Proverbs 31 Woman I so desire to be. Aspiring, but falling so short! Am betting she didn’t call her husband and ask him to make a quick stop for toilet paper as soon as he stepped off a plane….or a boat…or…whatever.
Then again, if “she prepares portions for her servant girls“, that would indicate she had someone else helping stock the shelves with Charmin.
Drat though! Im wishing Id taken my chances with Publix!
(Just hold it 16 more hours kids!)
We CANT WAIT to get Daddy home tomorrow!
