I am such a moron. Yesterday I wrote an article for Strollerderby about ways to save money on groceries. Today I went grocery shopping. Thrifty Mommy listed 50 ways to save money. I used zero of those fifty ideas and I spent nearly the GDP of East Timor.
At least the kids were good at the grocery store this time.
But then we went to CVS. I needed to get valentines for the kids in The Goon Squad’s pre-school class. My kids are so typical. Claudia picked the “Hello Kitty” valentines and Ian picked the ones with “Thomas the Tank Engine” on them.
Then Ian picked up the Spicy Nacho style Doritos from the end display and tried to open them right in the store. His reason? “I’m hungry”. Then he pushed his sister and she started screaming and laid down (layed down?) in the aisle. It was awesome. The screaming continued well into the parking lot, but not before the cashier explained to me how that was why he was never going to have children.
Wow, Mister. Thanks.
Maybe they should offer tact training for all CVS employees.
