8 Ways to Make Food Shopping as a Parent More Bearable

No one is denying children aren’t the gift that keep on giving. But, as a parent, there are just some tasks in day to day adult life that shouldn’t be accompanied by kids. Namely the weekly food shop. Opening yourself up to a world of whining, potential tantrums and…

Hello my Darling Friend... I’m always so delighted when you stop by!  Let me fill your cup with a fresh blend of, ‘Mommys Who Should Freshen Up on their Back to School Manners!’
 
My oh my, can you believe how fast the summer season went by?  Next thing you know, there’ll be ghosts and goblins running through the neighborhood and then the shopping season begins... Oh, how I just adore the shopping season... colorful new lipsticks, shiny new lipsticks, bright new lipsticks... huh?  OH, I mean, of course Darling, shopping for others is what I meant... **ahem** 
 
See how I get?  Mention the word ‘lipstick’ and I fall apart at the seams and can’t control my compulsive behavior to stay on topic!  Now where were we?  Oh yes... the end of summer, back to school and all that goes with... including outrageous Mommy manners!  Sounds like it’s time for more Mommy Lessons.  Do I have a Dos & Don’ts list for back to school behavior?  You betcha... let’s get started...
 
DO greet other Mommys when bringing your kids to school or extra curricular activities with a friendly ‘hello’ regardless if you know them or not.  It’s polite.  They don’t need to be your BFF or meet you for weekly pedi appointments, but you will see these same Mommys throughout the year and having a friendly way about you sets a wonderful example for your own children and for others to follow suit.
 
If you’re not new to the school, welcome those that are new... DON’T make new Mommys feel unwelcome by saying such nonsense as, “Oh, I didn’t know I would see you here.  They must have redistricted your neighborhood.”  Catty, catty... tssk, tssk!
 
DO follow the rules when dropping your kids off at school or other outside activities.  Usually there are crossing guards to help guide you and I know there are many signs and painted arrows that direct you to your destination.
 
DON’T drive to the front of the line when it’s not your turn and then proceed to block all traffic and endanger those kids that are trying to cross safely but now your entire vehicle has dominated the driveway.  tssk, tssk, tssk  I’m sure that car will have a fabulous new ‘key’ design on their door by the time the school year is over.
 
DO wear appropriate Mommy clothing that doesn’t distract others when you bend over to kiss your child goodbye.  Let’s save that look for a hot date night with the Hubby instead... sound good?
 
DON’T judge other Mommys’ AM attire as not everyone is a morning person and can look like they walked off the pages of a Nordstrom’s catalogue.  Even moi has morning challenges, though you would never know it of course!  Coffee stains down the front of a blouse, a forgotten pajama bottom as trousers or mismatched shoes can be quite endearing and remind us all that we’re only human and we do make mistakes.  It's okay... even if our shirt is inside out.
 
Well Darling, the pot is empty and I must get myself organized for the school year... I’ll start with buying a few new lipsticks to add to my morning routine, oooh, some new powder too.  Until next time my Dear Friend... Ta Ta!
