Grocery Shopping in our house has become a “Family Time” activity, certainly not by choice. I was always the one who did all the shopping, lifting, and putting away, but I was finding it be a burden on me. Our new rule is we all go or no one eats. My husband truly doesn’t mind, but not sure I could say the same for my two kids. They both absolutely hate it, may I say despise it. It has come to the point that I sometimes don’t tell them where we are going until we are safely buckled in the car. I then break the wonderful news of our journey. When I do tell them, this is what I hear “Pete’s Market is boring, Can we wait in the car?, Are we all going in?, Why, I hate that place, Really” and the whining continues. I probably am not the best mom for making them come with, but guess what I call this “Family Time”. You can never get enough of that!
