The Adventures in Hungry Toddler Shoppping


I was grocery shopping with Keith yesterday. We hadn't had dinner yet as we were waiting to go to ihop for pancake day (did you go?). I know it is never a good idea to go grocery shopping on an empty stomach, but as we were planning on eating immediately after, I didn't think it would be a big deal.

As we were walking through the produce area, I stopped to look at some spinach. As I was pondering the need for spinach, I looked down and saw Keith.

He had pulled a green onion out of a bunch and was in the process of taking a big bite out of it.

I big bite.

He bit it in half bite.

I wasn't planning on buying green onions yesterday, but they were added to the cart. I couldn't very well put it back!

As we continued along, I noticed him trying to sneak some grapes out of the cart.

That boy was hungry!

I think my lesson has been learned. Never take a hungry toddler to the grocery store.

On an different note, I will be changing to a new blog url. at the end of next week. I want to give ample notice so it doesn't take anyone by surprise. Jeffrey and I were talking about internet safety and though it is a pain to switch the url, I would rather have my family safe from any loonies who decide my life is important enough to mess with. That said, you will be able to find me at involuntarysmiles.blogspot.com. I hope to see you all there!

What a funny story about your hungry boy. And I agree, you can't be too careful on the internet. And I really like the involuntary smiles url. It fits!

It's so good to know other kids do that too! My kids always grab an apple and take a bite out of it. Once one of my kids took a bite and buried it back in the bin with all the other apples and I couldn't find it! How did Keith like the green onion?

Hahaha that's so funny! I say never bring a hungry mommy to the grocery store, I have way more problems wanting to eat the food than my kids! :)

p.s. brennan took a bite out of a raw squash on the way home from our walk in october. gobbled it right up. do you remember when he ate the raw pumpkin on halloween??? pork loin in his fullest.

we always have to buy something at the store to keep brennan entertained. my favorite are the mini oreos. oh the days where i'm being stubborn and don't want to buy anything. scary.
