Welcome to part IV of my “Life Story Series.”
If you missed out on last month, feel free to click here: “The Story of Christmas Vacation.”
In case you need a refresher, “Life Story Series” is a 12 month personal project that myself and a group of very talented photographers are participating in. It shows just a little glimpse into our lives. It’s a way for us to capture our memories creatively – just us. At the end of this post you’ll find a link to one of my photographer friends that’s playing along and she’ll be linking to someone else. It’s a whole big circle of stories in pictures. So grab a cup of coffee (or tea, or wine), click through and enjoy!
This month – it’s the dreaded grocery shopping.
Having two 2-year-olds and a soon-to-be-one-year-old, I get asked all the time: “How do you go grocery shopping?”
Well, I’ll show you. It’s really not as difficult as you may think as long as you go with your spouse (as seen here) or a kid-friendly supermarket. And by kid friendly I mean they have the ginormous-hard-to-maneuver shopping carts – because they’ll hold 3 toddlers (4 actually, but we won’t go there).
First, we get ready to go out the door. I’m not going to lie – this part is often quite a challenge.
We get into our carts.
We fiddle with buckles and zippers.
In the “Shop along” (yes, that’s what it’s called), the girls entertain their brother.
We paroose the aisles.
We search for the perfect produce.
We are king of the carriage.
And because either we’re crazy or it’s impossible to find everything we need at just one store - we move on to a new store -with a new cart.
We get a little silly.
Okay, okay – a lot silly.
And we ring ourselves out.
