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?
