Happy Monday! I’m really excited to hear what you all think about this two sided topic. 🙂
Sometimes, when we’re grocery shopping, we will get something in the store like a box of crackers for example, and I will let Lucas eat some as we finish our shopping trip adventures. Then, we just pay for it (obviously) on our way out along with our other groceries. Sometimes the clerk makes a remark, letting us know the box is open and I reply, “oh, we just got hungry!”
My brother and I used to do this with my mom when we went the store. I remember we would buy donuts and eat them as we walked the aisles, and then once we got to the check out lane we would tell them the donut item number and pay for it. Oh, good times. (Let me clarify that this was during TEENAGE years, not toddler years!)
So if you’re not suppose to do this I’m totally blaming it on my mom.
Ha. Just kidding mom.
My husband used to think this was crazy. Now I catch him doing it all the time! I think it’s completely fine as long as you pay for the item, of course. It makes shopping easier at times because I can let Lucas have a new snack, and you know what, a happy toddler = a happy mom. Or is the other way around? Well, whatever, I like snacks too. I’ll open a bottle of water or pop too, if I want. No big deal.
Alright, I’m dying to hear what you think. Do you do this too, or am I the only one?
