What my sister and I will never do again ...


My sister and I like to go on regular shopping trips during the week together just so we can spend time with eachother and the kids. We both love shopping to begin with no matter what type of shopping it is and most of our time is spent at our favorite grocery store which is the superstore. We probably go there atleast once a week just because there are always great deals and its big enough to spend lots of time in there looking around. So on Friday we decided to share a cart which seemed ok at first ... Let me say that is was the craziest shopping trip ever! Sharing a cart meant that samir and Addis had to sit together and the Ali would walk like a big boy holding someone's hand. Yah lets just say that it didn't work out too well. First of all, Ali cant stay still and was at points walking into people and not looking where he was going.. Second of all, apparently Addis and samir didn't feel like being friends that day because they were both bugging eachother! samir was pulling Addis hair, taking away his toys, poking him in the face. Addis was putting his hand in samirs mouth and pulling on his teeth and at some points leaning on samir and trying to bite him... Can you say help me !!! And then there is gabby... Independent miss I want to do it gabby. She wanted to push the shopping cart because we normally let her but she didn't understand why we wouldn't let her that day. It was bad enough having the two boys in there to push let alone a cart full of groceries. She couldn't control the cart at some points and was constantly getting toys thrown at her feet by the two boys. It would have been a very entertaining site for many people who saw us that day you know ... Two moms trying to shop with 4 kids making a lot of noise ... It was just crazy ! So samir had enough and started screaming so he had to be taken out of the cart so I pushed Addis along for a bit until he got on my nerves because he was grabbing everything he could get his hands on and putting it in his mouth ... Surprise Surprise !!! He even started to bite the shopping cart so I decided to take him out because we were almost done and walk with him in my hands. It was a tiring and a very very long and exhausting shopping trip let me tell you... We are never sharing a cart again no matter how little groceries I am getting!! I added some pictures since it was cute to see the two boys sitting beside eachother. Yah I would like to also add how Addis looks like the one year old and not samir! He is so much bigger than him in many ways and this picture shows it ! I think I am raising the next big linebacker for the NFL or something !! And then there is Ali the monkey... I think Addis almost weighs as much as Ali does... I picked him up the other day and it felt like I was holding Addis ! So that concludes my fun shopping day story ... Hope you all liked it and laughed at how crazy we were.. Life with kids is very unpredictable and always adventurous!
