Athletic Shopping

Athletic Shopping should be a competitive event. I think it would be great for teenagers. You could put them in a store, preferably a department store with lots of sections, some full of breakable items. Each teenager would be in charge of one toddler, preferably a tired one - tired and all wound up. They would be given a list of items to find, all very specific so that it takes a good hour to complete without kids.
Then, anyone who completed the event successfully without injuring their assigned toddler (or anyone else's) could be a winner...

Forget safe sex. They wouldn't even want to take the risk after that experience. I think it would be an effective method of promoting abstinence.

Has anyone else had any insane shopping trips lately with their little one(s) besides me???
I think I ran like 20 laps around Steinmart yesterday chasing Weston! You know it's bad when your mom suggests getting a babysitter before shopping together next time! :)

Get a babysitter? Ha! Yeah, that must have been bad. I can't wait to do it with three next year. I had anxiety about it this year so I started in October. I also enjoy going out to Walmart and Target after the kids are in bed. I'm beat by the time I get home, but the alone time shopping can't be beat. Christmas shopping is definitely an athletic put me into preterm labor with Afton!

That's too funny! I love the new target on Lake has a place to strap in two toddlers and the same basket for a carseat to fit. We love target for soooo many reasons! When i ask James what we should do today, he'll say "Go to Target"! Chris says I've totally warped him. Oh well. He'll make a great husband to shop with one day:)

Yes, do call me. It'll be so great to see you and Weston!!
