mummy's big helper.....



Apparently you cannot take a trip to the grocery store without the "proper" list. Much time was taken to create this list, including a sneaky incorporation of some ice cream!
After a very exhausting excursion (when your two boys each get their own child's cart to push, disaster is inevitable..) we returned home and prepared for dinner. Although the trip could have been much shorter(and less painful), I know how important my eldest son felt having the responsibility of making sure he got everything checked off his list....he even brought an extra crayon to make sure each item got properly ticked as he went along. It only gets a bit tricky when you have a younger brother who has no interest in this venture, and would rather see how fast he could ram into his brother's cart and many of times my ankles......ouch...
