I know many Dads who do as much around the house as their wives do - as does my husband - but when it comes to buying school supplies, I happily take on that task. I've always loved buying school (or office supplies). New pens, new paper, and usually something that I don't really "need" but that makes me smile.
I know that some Moms prefer to buy their kids' school supplies on a
solo-shopping trip, but I always bring my three kids with me. They love
getting new supplies, they love checking everything off of their lists,
and they love picking out little things that make them smile.
We went to Target last week, and my kids were like, well, kids in a candy store. My eldest "needed" a rainbow pack of Sharpies, by middle child chose as many green (literally) supplies as he could (it's his favorite color), and my daughter found a little chalk board that she could color herself and I simply couldn't say no. We got everything on their lists (and mine), plus something that made each of us smile a little brighter.
Who buys school supplies in your house? Do you go solo, or take your "helpers" with you?
