“Mommy, you promised we could go shopping on the weekend,” Izzie said as we were getting ready for lunch.

She was right. I did promise a shopping excursion so she could spend some of her birthday money. I would take the girls, but in my head I was thinking that I didn’t want anymore stuff.

Nonetheless, we headed to Target after a quick stop at the library and post office.

“We should go to the toys first, before we buy the groceries,” Izzie stated as we entered Target.

We grabbed a cart and made our way to the toy section. The girls had specific items they wanted to look at: baby dolls, Barbies, and Legos. First stop, the baby dolls. Surprisingly, in this aisle, nothing jumped into the cart. Next stop, the Barbie aisle since it was closer than the Legos. Two items made it into the cart. Slight detour to another doll aisle, where a doll joined the others in the cart, because, according to Izzie, “it is so me.” A few more items also made it into the cart. Finally, the Lego aisle. Two small sets made it into the cart after I vetoed the $60 set that didn’t have very many pieces.

Now this whole time, Sophia was with us, carefully determining how she wanted to spend her money. She had much less as she had not just had a birthday. She chose 2 puzzles, which I thought was a very wise choice as she absolutely loves puzzles, much like her mom.

Shopping excursion a success! In case you were wondering, we also managed to get the grocery shopping accomplished as well.

  1. This is a sweet little chapter from your life. (I don’t imagine Sophia has a hard time keeping track of puzzle pieces? They seem to get away from me.) Enjoy the dolls and puzzles.


  2. I remember my mom taking me shopping when I was little so that I could spend my birthday money and it was the best! Glad you and the girls had a fun morning shopping!


  3. Shopping! It’s every girls dream no matter the age! I spent my Saturday shopping with my 13 year old. Today she got a Target gift card and she is already asking when I won’t be too busy to take her! I’m glad you enjoyed the shopping trip with your girls!
