Friday as we were getting ready for nap time and Liv and I were sitting in the rocking chair she said, “And what else we do in Canada?”
Apparently this is now one of her favorite conversations to be having. I listed off a bunch of stuff and she just kept asking me what else there was to do. I finally said, “Maybe we’ll get to go shopping,” and her whole face lit up. I instantly thought, “Uh oh. Not what I was hoping for.” I decided to ask her what we should buy if we go shopping. Her list?
Eggs. Meat. Cheese. Milk. Eggs. Bread. Apples.
It took everything in me to not be giggling. I mean, how many other parents have a child who lists off grocery items after the word “shopping”. The realization hit me that Olivia has never gone “shopping” anywhere BUT the grocery store. She doesn’t even know that you can buy clothes in a store. Or toys. Just eggs, meat, cheese, bread…
Then I wondered how many years of vacations home we could swing before she did actually realize that you can buy toys and clothes and all sorts of fun things in stores, not just groceries.
Oh, and I have to admit that I was secretly happy to know that she is easily entertained. “Hey, wanna go grocery shopping???” And she would be all. over. it.
