A typical trip to the grocery store goes something like this:
Step 1: Forget the reusable grocery bags you were so proud you bought. They stay in the trunk of your car.
Step 2: Get all of the kids in the cart. Sammie and Luke insist on the car cart even though they are stuffed in there like sardines.
Step 3: Hit the bakery where your kids get free cookies. The lady will only give you two and you ask for a third for the baby. She looks at you skeptically. She then asks if you want a small one for him. Say no and take a large one. He eats the whole thing.
Step 4: Let the kids peruse the cake book. This is very important. They need to discuss what cake they will order for their birthday even if it is months away.
Step 5: Stumble upon these little beauties. Buy one with the intention of eating it a little at a time over the next few days. (Take it home and eat it like an apple in one sitting.)
Step 6: Load up the cart with milk, eggs, cookies and candy. (When you get home you will wonder why you have nothing to make for dinner.)
Step 7: Let the kids run though the front of the store while you check-out. Act like you don't know whose they are--hence no pictures.
Step 8: Head to the car. When you get home, leave the groceries in the car for at least three hours until you remember they are there.
