  • I feel the same way. I shop so much better alone. I spend much less money because I can concentrate on finding the best deals.

  • LOL... my kids are in school so I go after drop off now. Funny I some times am in there for ever because I bump into other moms I know from the kids school and we just chat there in the isle.

    As a young 20 something I would have told you that Id never enjoy the marketing... and look at me now.. It is a social time for me.

  • you aren't a weirdo, just a momma. I know how you feel, I do most of the shopping with our son, so I know it can be a bit stressful.

  • No you are not a wierdo but why do you call your fiance parenting the kid watching?? He is parenting and should be doing it on a regular basis. Every woman needs time without their child attached to them.

  • I get to go alone all the time. So much that there are times that I wish DH and our son were with me.
