      Thanks. I was just asked by my sister if I needed anything from the store and I found myself whining for junk… Guess it really never goes away, huh?

        The biggest offender in my life was my ex-husband. He was very sick a couple years ago so I took him grocery shopping to help out. We made a list but as we were winding out way through the market, he was tossing things in the cart left and right that had nothing to do with the list. THEN when we got to the check out, he kept looking at me, at the candy bars, and at me. I thought, dude, it’s YOUR money and YOUR health, have at it! lol Ah yes once a kid, always a kid, eh?

      • Absolutely! I have to admit, I go into the supermarket for one thing and come out with several items I don’t actually need! It serves me right for not making a list and for listening to my two teenage daughters (who I no longer take with me) 😉

      So, does it work? If so… I have a list I shall forward and if they are lucky enough to persuade you, then we can split the difference! Oh yeah!

    First in this week is Annette giving advice to kids? Is it good or bad?

      Dude! I am certain that this applies to kids of ALL ages! Put that DOWN right now… geesh, the older they get, the more expensive the treats.

  5. I’ll never look at whining kids in the check out line quite the same way.
