I can only offer my sympathy. Sounds like a good day 95% of the time though!

XOXO

Oh, grandmas do a lot, I couldn't imagine shopping with four!

Tertia

Oh Maureen, your day sounds um, interesting! So pleased it isn't just my kids who can act like total little nightmares sometimes.

oh how exhausting... frustrating.. and well, I'm tired reading about those adventures.

Tess, your mom writes kind of like you!

Heather in Washington State, USA

I only have two, but I realized long ago that for the best shopping experience, leaving them home with Daddy (or Grammy, or even at the neighbor's) and running to the store alone was one of the best ways to maintain my sanity! Often I will shop in the evening after the kids are in bed, my husband also usually asleep on the sofa, and I have the grocery store ALL TO MYSELF! I can be in and out in minutes, or I can linger and discover new items that inspire new dinner menus.

oh, i am so with heather in WA. i almost always go shopping after bedtime. if i have to go during the day then i try my best to split them up so i only have to take one. and we did the screaming bath tonight too, so i read your report (with a glass of liqueur in hand) just after a similar calm had descended here. it was surreal.

i'm glad you had a wonderful day until the 200 stairs up from the beach anyway. thank you for keeping the fan club updated!

Kara

LOL! i am killing myself! that is a story that can only be enjoyed well after it occurs! You forgot to mention how much you must have been sweating and hot and aggro! i can totally relate, perhaps this is why it's funny to me, i think i go thru this event at least twice a month, maybe just once if i'm lucky. would have offered y'all a hand if i could have. makes for good print though....must be a 'preacher story' in there somewhere! much love to you both.

Y'all?

They say y'all in Yellowknife? (ps - Are you Britney?)

Ok, despite not having the above not quite cleared up yet, I have to say, your kids are not appalling, and you aren't a crap mother.

What the 2 of you are is AMBITIOUS. Tomorrow has to be easier for the grown-ups!

HA HA very funy Mo. My grandchildren would never behave in such a manner.I think at the outset you climbed into the wrong taxi and things went downhill from there.It is common for grandmothers to develop temporary amnesia and to confuse other children with their grandchildren.Not to worry. I will be ther on the 24th to restore law and order.Love to all.
