Grocery Shopping Fun with the Little one!

Today I decided to try to make the trip to the store less, um, craptastical than it usually is when heading out with kids in tow. I knew I only needed a few things and this probably wouldn't work if you need a whole buttload (or in this case cartload) of groceries. But I printed out a cute little PICTURE list of items for Adrianna to shop for!! Got online and searched google images for a few things we needed. copy. paste. print. Wa-la! list for a 3 year old!! All light things that she could carry in her own little pink shopping basket that she has.
I really did pick a horrible day to do this considering everyone and their 3rd cousin is out shopping for INDEPENDENCE DAY!! , but None the less it wasn't too bad! I have even better hopes for next time!! She had a blast, mostly because she didn't have to sit in the shopping cart (or buggy if you are from the south. btw: I really dislike that). I'm sure I looked like an idiot taking pictures in the commissary...but It was fun and it isn't the first time I've been a fool in public! =)
Here was where we got a little... Off Track! =)

This large item (grapefruit juice) wasn't on her list but she decided that it "FITS!!" so it was OK... hey lets put that back?....
Checking the list to make sure she got the right one. What an awesome little helper!

THUMBS UP MOM!!! task complete!!!

I cant wait to try it out again. Next time on a Wednesday mid-morning, not right after payday!
