shopping we will go

We went to walmart today. Which isn't really news or anything. But it was interesting. I am not a fan of shopping. For anything really. Especially at a store where I swear I should just hand them my paycheck. But I decided to buy a baby monitor, and we needed formula. Don't forget the bubble bath, new flip flops for Will (the gorilla tape used to "fix" them broke), and a couple other odds and ends.

Getting ready to leave the house is always so much fun. First off, I knew I had to feed the kids. Or they would be begging for fast food and blah. So we decided on cereal. Which went pretty good. I only had to argue with Luke why I was allowed coffee and not him. Also, Luke and Bella have been playing what they call the cereal game. They both half way finish their cereal and then switch. Disgusting if you ask me, but I guess that is why they don't ask me. Load them all up and try to head out the door. I was carrying the diaper bag and Will's football bag. Rachel looks around and goes screeching back into the house. "You forgot baby NIck. Noooo mommy!" "No I did not," I tried to reason with her. I was coming back for him. But really it is a good thing she stays on top of that stuff, cause ya never know..... I seriously do a head count in the van. Can't always remember names but I got the number 5 down!

When Scott is with me the cart thing is much easier. Two carts. Nick up front with me and Bell up front with him. Usually Luke in the back. Rachel usually ends up in the back of the other. Will complaining loudly as to why HE can't be pushed in a cart. However, with just me, we do things a little different. Nick up front, Bella in the back. Three oldest allowed to roam free. First we head to baby land where my kids ooh and awe over all the cute stuff. Then they begin to fill my cart with baby food. The only reason I noticed was because Will brought over a jar of carrots and asked if Nick likes carrots. After taking all of the food out of the cart, I tried to explain that Nick is not ready for that yet. To which Luke asks "How do you know what Nick is ready for?" "Because I am the mom and I know everything. This isn't my first rodeo." He laughs at me. Luke always laughs at me when I act like I know what I am talking about.

Then we head to the shampoo aisles. Of course they all want a different character body wash and shampoo. I just get one of each. We run through that stuff like water anyway. An older woman walked up to us and said "are these children all yours?" "Yep, all of them." She replied with "Congratulations. They are all so beautiful." Which was wonderful of her to say as two of them were wrestling over monkey body wash.

Then we head to the shoe section. If ever I need something fun to do with my kids I should just take them to the shoe section. Will got a pair of flip flops while the kids were thrilled with the slippers and rain boots. "Can we please, pretty please get these slippers?" "The physical appearance of the please makes no difference." **LOVE Despicable Me**

Then the power went out. Yep. Will begin to flip. "Is there a storm?" "No, the sun is shining through the ceiling." "You are so lying to me." "Um...no." And then it was like a code red. Walmart employees were running around telling people to hurry and get to the checkout because backup (electricity I presume) would only last so long. You can bet if I brushed my hair, got 5 kids ready, and toured this store-we were paying for our stuff before lock down. Guess everyone else said that too. People were running to the check out. But we did make it. Got everything in the van. Then Luke yells from the back of the van he needs new shoes because his just broke. William called him out and said he broke them on purpose. Wrestling in back of van ensues. Ahhh...walmart trips.

Another quote from Despicable Me (if you have not seen it- it is a MUST!)
Gru: Clearly we need to set a few rules. Rule number one: You will not touch anything.

Margo: Aha. What about the floor?
Gru: Yes, you may touch the floor
Margo: What about the air?
Gru: Yes, you may touch the air.
Edith: What about this?
[Holds a ray gun on her hands, the laser sight aimed right at Gru]
Gru: Ah! Where did you get that?
Edith: Found it.
[Gru takes it away from her]
Gru: Rule number two: You will not bother me while I'm working. Rule number three: You will not cry, or whine, or laugh, or giggle, or sneeze or barf or fart! So no, no, no annoying sounds. All right?

    I am not ѕuggeѕting your content isn't good, but suppose you added a post title that makes people want more? I mean "shopping we will go" is kinda vanilla. You ought to look at Yahoo's fгont pаge and ωatch
    how thеy creаte news headlinеs to grab
    people to open the links. Υou might add a related viԁеo or a pic or two
    to get гeaԁers іnterestеd about everything've got to say. Just my opinion, it might make your website a little bit more interesting.
