Look: There are a lot of errands in my week. Grocery stores, libraries, target, hardware stores...whatever. I give myself 15 to 30 minutes extra for each errand. This way it gives the kids time to play a bit. Every store has some aisle they love. In our library there is a turtle. At target they sell toys. Wegmans has trains hanging from the ceiling. Lowe's has the tractor section So this is just a picture to show our fun.
Learn: I learned this lesson a while ago, happy kids means a better shopping experience for me. Sometimes when I am rushing it ends in shambles. The kids end up getting upset and the errands don't go well.
Love: I love crossing things off my to do list. Letting the kids have some fun is my key!
