It’s funny the positions you can be put in by little ones. But it just shows why I prefer to do my grocery shopping early, when the store is empty, even though we usually don’t do it that way any more.
Samantha has added a number of words to her vocabulary lately, including cracker. And she really likes crackers. So when we went down that aisle on Tuesday, thank God at about 8:30 in the morning, she got very excited, and started shouting,
“Ca-ca! Ca-ca! Ca-ca!”
Happily, I’m not the only one with these sort of experiences. Craig’s parents’ neighbors have a daughter right between Lucy and Samantha – she’s about 2 1/2 now. And Jasmine’s dad took her to the store one afternoon, and she started shouting, all through the store, and could not be bribed or threatened to stop, “Daddy, I suck! I suck!”
When he got out of the store (swearing that he would never bring her shopping again), he realized that she had gotten her hand stuck in the cart. She was trying to say “stuck”.
And thus the running jokes begin. Anyone care (or dare!) to share similar stories?
