When I was a kid, hearing my mom say "I'm going to the grocery store" was music to my ears. My sister was never into heading out with my mom on the weekly grocery run, but my brother and I were always excited because we knew that we could sneak an extra treat in there that wasn't on the list by going. Though my mom enjoyed the company, having two kids along while grocery shopping had to have been a lot. So, when I see parenting tweets about grocery shopping, I picture my mom being in their shoes and automatically empathize with how they may feel.
For us, it was always fun grocery shopping with my mom because she did her best to make it that way. We would play games together to see who could spot the item we needed first and guesstimate the amount we would spend when we got up to the register. I'm sure it wasn't the easiest taking us to the grocery store with us, but we did our best to behave and listen to what she needed from us to make the trip a success. Of course we didn't nail it every time, but that's what being a kid is all about, right?
