Gain access to food
Because you hound your parents
In the checkout line

Love it! I can really relate to this having had 5 little ones of my own.
I was once that little one. Now I am the ever patient person behind the cart of little ones… lol

The joys of the supermarket! I can’t say I was ever patient alas! 🙂
Well, I have my days, for sure.
Excellent use of the prompts. I really love the humour and the visualisation. I think we’ve all been there! 😀
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?
Ha! So true 😀
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) 😉
That made me laugh!!! Mama! Mama! Mama! Can I get this?! Can I get it?! Mama! Mama! Mom! Mom! Mom! Mom! 🙂
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.
I’ll never look at whining kids in the check out line quite the same way.
I hear ya! There are times I just want to buy them something to bring about some peace and quiet. lol
