Food Shopping Meltdown

Posted by   + Show Post

Well, we had our first one today. EVER! (Now, get over the part where you hate me because I've only had one in 3 years and focus on me! Lol.)

Everything was normal until we hit the checkout line. Then Declan morphed into a monster. I'm still not sure what his problem was, but the tears and the screaming didn't end until about 30 minutes after we got home. He just melted down and screamed for about 15 minutes while I was checking out.

I would have laughed if it wasn't so annoying.

Thanks for listening ladies, I know you can understand!

I avoid taking mine at all costs, just because my youngest ones are 3 and 4.. I plan my trips when my older kids are in school and DH is home with the youngest ones.

I do wish this was an option. Mine are 17 months and 3. If I waited until DH came home we might not have food some weeks! ;) I'd have to got at lke 8 pm.

In our case, it would have been months.

Have you ever considered having your groceries delivered? It's a service that's always been around here (free with a minimum order, usually something like $25), but it's really gaining popularity now.

Not really. You can't beat the prices at the commissary. But it would be a nice option if I had the extra money.
