Serious Shopper


Before I left yesterday Jerri called and told me she and Beans were coming to do some cleaning for me so I took Beans with me to do all those dreaded errands. She was polite to the fellas at the improvement district while I paid the bills for them, she kept us all entertained at the bank drive-thru by trying to convince me to "get outta da truck Nanaw and catch them bugs on the wall", she got a little antsy when we had to stop at another bank, and then pulled in to the station to get gas. But then we got to her favorite part of the trip, we went to Wal Mart to pick up the milk, bread, tea, bird, and hummer food.

$153 dollars later we emerged.



That child LOVES to shop and unlike most kids who head for the toy department, she's a serious grocery shopper.

We came home with a huge pizza, yogart in a tube, two different kinds of the snackable thingies, some party favor watches with candy in them, malted milk balls, chocolate milk, bananas,,,I forgot what all else,

and a baby pumkin.

When I asked her if she was going to let her momma paint and decorate the pumkin, she told me in no uncertain terms, "Nope, I'm gonna eat it!"

We would have come home with even more stuff but I told her "No" three times which resulted in some little tantrums. The third tantrum ended when Nanaw spatted her butt, just once, but we made it to the check-out after that one.

When she got home and went out with Jerri to help bring in some of the bags, she told Jerri, "I'm not gonna talk about what Nanaw did to me in Wal Mart."

We made it to tae kwon do last night and had to turn around and come back home. Zach had a headache and stomach ache and wasn't feeling real sporty. He felt a lot better this morning though.

I don't know why you didn't "get outta da truck Nanaw and catch them bugs on the wall". You could have put them in a jar and taken them home as pets.

Seems like a person can't ever get out of wal-mart for less than $100 anymore. Did you ask Beans if she was going to cook that punkin first, or eat it raw?! :lol:

I really think you should have caught her one of those bugs at the bank....but at least you got her one of those candy watches...I'm sure that was a fair trade.

she's a cutie!

What happens in Wal*Mart stays in Wal*Mart, at least in Beans' world.

Hilarious!
