My new shopping buddy!

The other day JK and I were in Target and I saw a cute jean jacket - Okay I had seen it before with a friend but I knew I didn't need it. On this particular day I tried it on and decided I would just put it in the cart to think about it. The thing is, Lars is very money conscious - not tight, just very conscious.

An example of his thoughts on money: One time when I was shopping with him I said that something was too expensive and that I didn't need it, to which he replied "I've never been so turned on!" - Nice huh?

Anyways, I try, really I do, to be more like him - I'm looking at clothes at Target aren't I? (I love target clothes by the way). But on this particular day I realized for the first time the joy that shopping with my little girl is going to bring me for the rest of my life. It's like she knew how badly I wanted that jacket when she spilled her chocolate milk all over herself and that glorious jacket. Sure there were tears and wet clothes to take care of and yes maybe a security guard came to talk to me when I stripped her down and put new clothes from the little girl section on her - but if you ask me it was the beginning of a beautiful shopping relationship between my daughter and I - I owe you JK!

You are hilarious, Candi! I love it. Girls are so fun. I can't seem to get out of Target without buying something for Emily. Even if it's just a pair of tights.

Too funny. Unfortunately at my house they'd spill on golf clubs and video games. Maybe I need to take JK with me.

OH darnet. YOu just had to buy that jacket;0). I wonder what the security guard was thinking about. What a fun shopping partner. I have one like that. The other however hates shopping and has the worst taste ever so its quite the battle trying to get her to think that something cute was her idea to get.

This girl recognizes a wardrobe staple when she sees one!

love that little julia karen! she is already such a good shopper! may I borrow her to spill something on something that I don't really need/really really want?! I would be very grateful.

Are you sure we don't want her to go shopping with us? She might come in handy. I'm still going to nag you (don't tell Toby) about a book. I laughed till I hurt!

Grandma Karen April 27, 2010 at 11:38 AM  

PLEASE let her come shopping with us! I'm still laughing - what a good entry this would be in a book!

I just discovered your blog. I've been thinking what fun it will be to shop with my little girl. She's only 5 months old, but I can already tell it will be fun! It's so cool you put such a positive spin on such a "fun" clean up.
