Killing me softly.

Grocery shopping, that is.

With a toddler.

Need I say more? I didn’t think so. But that wouldn’t make for much of a blog post.


Screaming, squealing, shouting and grabbing.


Oh the fun to be had.

If you’re INSANE.

We can have popcorn for dinner. I don’t care. I will not embark on such a treacherous journey during the week EVER again. Who needs soap on a Tuesday anyway!?

My weekend treat will be shopping ALONE. My company is superb. I don’t shout at pineapples or whine at potatoes. I don’t start chewing through the plastic wrap of a cucumber either.

And then spit it on the floor.

      • Ha ha, lol. Do you put the earphones in or your child? Make sure the volume is low enough for their hearing, and then just have them available without being the one to put them in. A child learns through mimicking their parents so have a separate set for yourself and pay your child no attention. Curiosity (a natural human trait) will get the better of them and soon they will follow suit.

        Introduce it at a safe time away from the hustle and bustle and maybe have some nursery rhymes (Zoodles are a great app for this) on preset.
        Then when your at the store just reintroduce it again. Your child will remember the fun of the previous times and be joyfully humming a baa baa black sheep beat in no time at all.
