Pass the Ibuprofen please...

Shopping with two almost 10 year olds is not fun. I don't know why I told myself that it would be. Saturday afternoon, we left the house on a mission....or so I thought. I told the girls that we were looking for long shorts, not toys! HA HA! I was the one in the crowded store doing a juggling act with all of the outfits. The twins were the ones casually browsing through all of the *cool* accessories, "high school musical" stuff, and Webkins! I tried to keep my calm, but I just don't do well in crowds. I think I blogged about that once!!! It took an act of congress to get them to try things on and we had major disagreements on what was cute and what wasn't. They certainly did not like most of the tops that I thought were cute! To say that they are picky would be an understatement. FINALLY, we made our selections and then stood in line to check out. After they picked me up off of the floor ( that would be due to the total, that I still don't understand), we left the store. How can four little outfits cost that much money??? They said "thanks mom" and I told them that I think I will stick to shopping for them on my own. I honestly don't mind having to return things 5 times, IF it means I get to shop in peace!!! REALLY!!!!!! ;)

Is this what I have to look forward to with Emma? I'd shop for them on my own as long as humanly possible, and treat yourself to your favorite coffee or something. :)

Shop with a friend and leave them at home. Please. And let me be that friend.

I don't look forward to that! I ordered Laura Grace some clothes online and she informed me that I didn't get the right colors. Apparently she only wears purple now.

Amen Sister! Shopping with children for ANYTHING is not usually fun. I keep telling myself that boys really don't care what they wear and I can keep shopping for them until H. sees it and says, "that doesn't match". What three year old knows if something doesn't match?! ha!
