You know what I’d like to see?

A game show in which a bunch of dads have to compete.

They have to go to Super Target on a busy day, like Sunday. With a preschooler and a toddler in tow. And an empathy belly. With a mile long list. They have to stick to the budget and still get everything the family needs to eat for the next month, plus a few ‘hidden’ extras like glue-sticks and wrapping paper. They can only have eaten some mini-donuts for breakfast, and they have to wear new shoes. There can be no fewer than three trips to the restroom. They have to accomplish their tasks without forgetting where they parked the van, or one single thing on the list.

You know who I’d like to see on that show?

My husband.

Yeah. That’d be cool.

  1. Girl, I think you’re on to something!! Let me know where to sign up, because if I hear ‘how did you spend so much money? It doesn’t seem like you got a whole lot of stuff’ one more time, I may just feed him to the sharks. 🙂 I kid. Mostly.

    I think it’s a learned skill to be able to shop with kids in tow and not want to kill them by the time you leave. And keep this in mind: the better you train them to behave now, the more help they’ll be in the store later! At only 5, Sam is already a huge help in the store. So keep up the good work!! 🙂


  2. Hee! Hee! I would like my husband to be on that show too. You also need to throw in a tantrum from one of the two kids. And a cart that doesn’t drive straight….

  3. I think I’ll send my husband to compete with your husband…except they would also have to remember to bring snacks for the kids, get gas, and be back home in time to make supper..on TIME!!

  4. Funny post, and how true it is! LOL, at the shopping cart comment! I got one to add… How ’bout waiting in line behind someone with Oodles of stuff and said person realizes that the coupon for something the got was for the wrong thing and send one of their kids back for the right thing and hold up the checkout line for five minutes.

    It’s too late to turn back because your stuff is already on the checkout and people are lined up behind you! Meanwhile your kids begin to scream because you picked the checkout lane with chocolate and they have to have chocolate Right Now! Oh yeah, and change the store to Wal-Mart!

    Seriously happened to me last week! Grrrr!

  5. Amen! I’d like to see my husband on that show too. And of course I would add-then come home clean house, do some yard work, cook supper, do the dishes and help with homework. Ya I’d like to see that!
