Carsyn & Chad’s Great Grocery Adventure
Thursday afternoon, Chad was at Kroger for a remote broadcast for work. Carsyn and I were in need of some groceries, so here we go to visit Uncle Tad! Little did I know it would turn out to be a mixture between Supermarket Sweep and Problem Child!!I will say, Carsyn LOVES her Uncle Tad, so she was pretty excited to see him. Chad was outside the store when we got there, but promised Carsyn he would come find us when he had a break. Sure enough, 10 minutes later…here he comes!
I swear, the next thing I know… a 40 year-old man is in the back-end of my grocery cart!! No, I’m not kidding!! Carsyn didn’t know what to think! But, she was lovin it! Although she was a little confused, because I don’t let her ride in the back of the cart and I tell her that we can’t because the manager will get on to us. (Don’t judge me for slightly misleading my child, it’s a basic parental survival skill!) At one point she did look at me and ask if they manager was coming, haha!
So, after about five, very strenuous minutes of pushing a toddler and a grown man in my cart, Chad decided his thighs were burning from squatting in the cart and it was time to get out. Now, I must say that he has also allowed Carsyn to open up a juice box, which isn’t normally allowed either and I had to make him put down the powdered donuts!
I do wish I would have had a video camera to catch his attempt to get out of the cart, I was rollin!
Well, after Chad regained the feeling in his legs, I’ll be danged if he doesn’t hijack my grocery cart, with my child in it! Ha! Then….they take off, basically running away from me! That little sucker…
Once I (finally) caught up with them, they have added four boxes of Cheez-its, 2 packs of Snack Pack Pudding, 3 packs of blueberry muffins and some gummy-snacks. Needless to say, I put most of it back.
The moral of this story is, don’t let Chad take your child grocery shopping! Or even just go to the grocery story with him at all!
I would like to issue an apology to anyone whose trip was interrupted by my two children. I can only do so much!
