The List

It may be short or long but it's the dreaded paper my husband doesn't want to see - the so called list.

What's all the fuss?

It only contains the essentials - milk, eggs, bread, and whole wheat bread. Sometimes, bananas, apples and yogurt are on the list too. How many items can I have on this?

Growing boys mean bigger appetites.

And shopping with them is no easy task. Often times the boys are restless, tired and grumpy. They are in a hurry to go home.

However, they're always happy to visit Costco. After school shopping turns out to be an evening eating out. I'll never know why they like to eat pizza over there.

It's no surprise, we'll spend more time looking at the electronics, books and DVDS; and somehow more items end up in the cart. What happened? How did we get side-tracked?

So, that's why I prefer to shop alone, or have my husband do errands. Don't forget that list!

Can you pick up a few things on your way home? We just need the essentials.



  1. I love hearing stories about your boys! Mine's not even 1 and I already get side-tracked in the store--but my husband loathes the grocery store. The things we do for!

  2. Ha! The Honey-Do List. Yes! I am familiar with THAT list! Great blog!
