Price Check on Aisle 5!

Kylee was home sick yesterday with strep. She wasn't letting the strep keep her down though. Nana (my mom) gave her a shopping cart for Christmas and she was dying to use it!! We loved playing grocery store when we were younger, and she does too! We used to raid the pantry and take the food to the livingroom to set it up, but I figured it'd be much easier to just open our pantry cabinet and let her shop that way, especially since I was in the kitchen making stock.

She even got a little baby for the front of the cart, and I gave her a handful of change to put in her puppy purse.

After she filled her cart, she'd come to me and I'd ring her up. I had a little play cash register, and I'd "beep" as I scanned the groceries. I pretended to be the clerk, and would ask her questions like "Did you find everything you needed? What's your baby's name?" (It was something off the wall and I can't remember it.)

Then I'd tell her a total and she'd hand me some change.

And she'd take her bagged groceries out to the dining room and put them all on the table. We did this about 10 times before she decided to go lay on the couch and watch TV. I think that little cart is going to get lots of miles around here... Thanks Nana!

I am so tickled she likes it! Great way to keep her busy and happy Katie!! I always loved when we played grocery store and how about restaurant waitress? Simple games that didn't cost any money but entertained y'all for hours! I sometimes miss you all being little. I sure did love my time with each of you and will always treasure the memories. I was thinking about the playhouse the other day. Good memories of my great kids! Love you, Momma

Cute! The shopping cart was a great idea, mom! I might have to look for some for around here.
Great idea for an activity for a sick day, Kate :) Kylee's hair looks like it's getting long! Grow, hair, grow!
