It's Bella's turn to learn to shop. She was born with the right instincts--for years her allowance was spent on macaroni and cheese in the box. But now she's doing the real thing. Unit pricing, reading labels for dairy, checking sizes and expiration dates: there's a lot to think about.
My grocery shopping crew these days is Bella at my side, getting it done, and Felix off somewhere else in the store with Daisy in a red racecar trolley. They have their own agenda--first a deli stop for a free cookie, some cruising up and down aisles with a lot of talk about crazy driving, a visit to the florist for a free balloon, and then the dairy case to select just the right tiny box of chocolate milk for Daisy's lunch on grocery day.
How did I ever get it done without help?
