Hahaha! I have the same feeling when I forget my list. And there is that nagging feeling that I forgot something when I go up to check out (which I usually have).

Quoting arpazia:

I forget to make the list:(
I end up the store all confused.
"Why am I here? Oh god, how did I get here?!"

I kid you not!


Quoting dusky_rose:

I'm a list maker also. Otherwise I usually forget something.

I am a list maker, but not to this level. I usually do lists for big trips.

I think the hardest part of running errands with DS is having to get him in and out of the car all the time. Even if its just to pay a bill....if I have DH with me I could leave them in the car and be out in less than 5 minutes. If its just me and DS a 5 minute trip takes about 15.

Great video. My kids LOVE the mott snacks. Besides taking them out for snacks we keep them at our camper trailer. So when we are running around in the summer they can have a quick snack that they love. 

My DS hates the container. He would prefer a spoon. I havent tried it in about a year though, so I think I might try it now. He might change his mind. How old is your little one?

I do make lists.
But, to be honest, I RARELY run errands with my kids. It's just too much drama that I am not up for.

I totally agree with this. Unfortunately DH works nights so I have no choice. Its hard with just one kid....I couldnt imagine it with 3. :)

Maybe if you got a magnetic notepad and just stuck it on the fridge and update it throughout the week until its time to go to the store it would be easier not to forget things! :)

My kids are 10, 6, 5 and 3 and they all love it. My 3 year old is the one that loves it the most though.

 I have a list too. And I always make sure the Kindle and phone are chged for dd to play on in the back seat

We just recently started taking the Leap Pad and the Nook for DS to play with in the car. I used to only let him play with it if we went out to eat or for a longer road trip ( aside from at home of course ).
