I Want One!! 

Something that brings me out in a hot sweat with just the thought of it is shopping with kids.  I try to do my shopping online but unfortunately there is the odd occasion I have to brave the the shops with the kids in tow.

We had a last minute dash to get a birthday present this week which to be honest went well until we hit the dreaded till point!

Narrow walkways with shiny object to pull at, shelving to pull down and hundreds of sweets to ask for.  The two minute queue felt like hours, number four had a melt down on the refusal of a Spider-Man electric toothbrush whist ramming the buggy into the unsympathetic woman in front. Number five was trying his Mission Impossible moves to free himself from the buggy to devour any chocolate item he could get his hand on.  

Trying to block out my screaming children and disapproving looks we make it to the till point. The ‘sorry for the wait’ really didn’t cut it today and I would like to challange any store manager to queue with my youngest two to see if these ‘impulse buy’ till point displays are in the least bit pleasing for parents!!
