Shopping with kids

Being out with 4 kids ages 5 and under can either go really well or really bad. 
Most shopping trips are somewhere in between. 

God bless Costco for making a shopping cart that fits 4 kids.

Sometimes all 4 kids are whining or crying or fighting and I am sweating trying to get out of the store as fast as I can. 
75% of all shopping trips end with at least one kid being banished to sit in the cart with their mouth shut and their hands folded. 
And every now and then we have a really peaceful shopping trip where all 4 kids do really, really well.

The other day I was at Target with the kids.
It was a fairly normal shopping trip (no major meltdowns or anything).
In the 20 minutes I was there six people made comments to me.
They were as follows...
1. and 2. "Wow, you have your hands full." (I got this one twice)
3. "Hey only one more and you'd have a basketball team. So you might as well have one more. Are you going to have any more?" (I'm pretty sure there are more than 7 people on a basketball team)
4. "Wow, you are serious stuff. I only have two and I'm going crazy. I don't know how you do it with four."
5. "Wow, 4 kids! And they are so well behaved. Normally I see people's kids climbing out of the cart and screaming." To which I replied..."Good thing you didn't see me a few minutes ago."
6. "You are busy!"

Lol! Every time I go out with the kids someone says something but I don't think I have ever gotten this many comments in one trip. It was so funny!  

Proof that all Target shopping trips don't go smoothly.
Madelyn, a bottle of opened sunscreen plus a crying baby. 
Just keeping it real people. 

What is the funniest thing any one has ever told you while you were out with your kids?

Only the brave... ;)

I don't go shopping with my two crazy boys because when they're together, they are too much carzy! :)

So, shopping with kids only with my husband, or with one kid!.

ciao!

Nearly every day, I get asked (at least once) if my boys (who are 27 months apart!) if they're twins. The conversation usually goes something like this:

Them: Are they twins?
Me: Nope
Them: WOW! Are you sure?!
Me: Uh... yep. I was there.
Them: Oh. Right. But WOW!
Me: Both times... More than two years apart.
Them: But they look so much alike!
Me: Well, they're brothers... like... from the same parents. DNA is pretty amazing stuff, right?

One day, I got the twins question from three different people within a fifteen minute period, and I had had enough. I couldn't help myself. By the third person, I said "Yep, they are. I just like to give that one (pointing to my oldest) Miracle Grow in his Cheerios." and giggled as I walked away.

Ask a silly question, get a silly answer :)

One time I was at a new church and a lady said to me, "Your little girl looks just like you. She doesn't look like your husband at all!" I was with my boyfriend and she was his daughter, not mine. Amazing how some people can see anything they want.

There were 10 of us kids growing up. The most often heard comment was, "Your parents didn't have much to do, did they?"

My sister and I are 19 months apart and we got the twin question ALL the time!

I have a dark complexion and my husband is really fair. When I'm at the park with my daughter, I've been asked how many times a week I take care of her....um, "every day, every hour...she's my daughter."

I have perfected the grocery store with all of them. I get those obnoxious car carts and strap two in the front (if you don't buckle them in they will escape) and the other in the child seat on top. I tell them if they behave I will get them a cookie in the bakery. Start on the opposite side of the store from the bakery and make it your lat stop. The behave in hopes of a cookie (which are free) and they quietly munch on them while I go through the check stand! It's the perfect solution!

The Dubai World CupCup is a Thoroughbred horse race held annually since 1996
and contested at the Meydan Racecourse which in Arabic
suggests a place where people congregate and compete, a sort of
meeting point[1] in the Emirate of Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The race is operated through the Emirates Racing Authority (ERA)
whose Chairman is Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of
Presidential Affairs of the United Arab Emirates. It offers nine races,
consisting of eight Thoroughbred contests and one Purebred Arabian contest.
