Shop until ya drop

So I admit it. I am an AVID shopper. I could shop anytime, anywhere. Shoot if you live in a town with one Wal-Mart and I come to visit you? You can bet I'll have a shopping spree at that Wal-Mart.

Well all of my friends and family used to tease me and say that I needed a little girl one day to shop with. That she and I would create a deep hole in hubby's pocket.
When I was newly preggo with Bean everyone swore up and down it would be a girl. I was adamant that it was a boy.
My mom asked me to repeat myself when I told her the ultrasound results. They were just SOOO sure it was a girl.
Nope.

However, my not having a girl has not slowed down my shopping in the least.
There are some cute clothes for boys nowadays. I personally love me some Gymboree.
Anyways, my child did inherit my love for shopping.
Penis or no penis that kid loves to shop.

When we drive by the shopping center I hear in the backseat:
"Momma? Can we go to Tawget?"
"Not today bud"
"PUH-lease Momma! I need some shoes."

Yeah not toys - shoes!!

So yesterday I had to run to Tawget as Bean calls it to get my second book in the series of Twilight. Well when we get there Bean heads STRAIGHT for the boys dept. and begins to comb the racks.
"I like this and this and this" he said as he piled up the clothes in his arms.
"Baby, those are too small for you."
"Oh" he said, "well how bout this?" He was holding a pair of running pants with a stripe down the side.
"Tell you what let's go home now but this weekend? We will shop your little heart out."
He smiled and said, "Okay momma!'

Oh yes, his Daddy is going to hate me for this one...

I have never walked into Tawget and walked out with nothing. Ever. Most other stores are the same way, too. That said, Little P has learned from his mommy and has been shopping with me since he was two days old; he is well aquainted with most stores and loves to pick out his own things... we are just helping to drive the economy, right?

OH, I really, REALLY hope my son doesn't want to shop for shoes as much as my daughter! I'll be SCREWED.

That doesn't seem fair. My son is about as sharp dressed as they come, but he HATES shopping.

He's JUST like my little one!!! Belly is 4 and will tell anyone who listens, "Target is my favorite store." He believes you can get everything you need there. Snacks, furniture, toys, bubble bath, light up shoes....

Oh Momma...you got trouble!

Colleen said...

bad thing about loving shopping and being married to someone who enjoys shopping is being on a dang strict budget. So I have been slowly teaching my boys the fine art of shopping the clearance racks... :)

That is awesome.

Your little man is MY kind of guy.
