Children see a store automatically think of different things they will beg and plead for when we get inside and so do the teenagers to, the only difference is, one of them is cuter when pouting.

Mine are the exact same! God forbid they actually sit in the cart. I’m lucky if I can successfully buy two or three items before I end up spending the next 20 minutes chasing them around the store. They’re not even greedy… they just want to run everywhere and touch everything!

We’re buying milk!! And candy!! And tampons!!! (Yeah, Mother Nature was at my house).

Now he’s two and I have a 5mo old – I go through the ‘resignation’ stage where you simply resign and decide you will never go to the store with both kids ever again. The last time I did, the car seat was partially blocking my view of my son & he fell climbing out of the cart, smacking his forehead on the concrete floor. I got the judgmental looks as I raced to pizza hut asking for ice. One month later he still has a lump on his head, and anytime he runs into something, it’s really quick to bruise again. It looks like I constantly beat him. I just wait for the day the cops are waiting for me at daycare.

i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks?
If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?
I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.

Babysitting implies that you are doing something special and out of the norm. Parents should share responsibilities so each can have some down time (this helps prevent animosity later) so I certainly hope you never tell your wife that you will babysit your son…

It works so well, I am tempted to go in there to buy it when I need to go to a different store to go shopping like Kohl’s or the dreaded Walmart shopping day. Granted ~ my little one is only 2 so I am sure that the popcorn trick isn’t going to save me from the embarrassing meltdowns forever ~ but I will take it for now! Oh and I ALWAYS walk out of Target with unintended purchases… DAMN THAT STORE!

I remember chasing my three year old who insisted he would be good and walk around target while people just stared at this woman chasing her son while pushing a cart with and infant in it! Someone finally helped me out, after going half way around the store, and stopped him verses staring!

I am now thankful that all three kids are well behaved. There a lot of oooo I want this mommy but followed by nos! And we avoid the toys section usually because they already have enough and if they want something new they need to get rid of something! My two year old just sits quietly! And the last time I took my husband into target we walked out with 250$ receipt!

I’m 32, but I haven’t aged since I was about 14. Up close I have the fine lines forming around the eyes that show my true age, but from more than a few feet away, I look like I’m ditching high school when I go to the store in the middle of the day! I go out of my way to make sure I look like I’m in my 30′s when I get dressed and in no way could be mistaken for a teenager, but it almost never helps. Don’t these people see my diamond engagement ring and wedding band – clearly the accessories of a grown woman – I always wonder. They just see my young looking face, toddler and baby bump, then assume I’m a second-time teen mother. Even if I was, why the dirty looks???

My husband is 29 and smoked up until the time he found out I was pregnant two years ago. One time we went into the store and I pulled out cash to pay for his cigarettes, me being 30 and him 27, and the woman refused to sell them to us. She thought he was an older guy buying a teenager cigarettes and lectured him. I had to go to the car to get my ID and she was convinced it was somehow a fake, but since she had no choice since it was real, she had to sell them to us. We got evil looks from her as we left the store.
