I present to you The Illustrated Grocery List.
I took requests from Boo and drew quick pictures of the things he wanted to get at Trader Joe's. Then he added some pictures of his own at the bottom, although I'm not sure what those are supposed to be. We reviewed it before we left home, and he was able to name everything. Punky looked at it and just pointed at the apples.
We live the same distance from the Traders Joe's in St. Louis Park as we do from the one in St. Paul. Naturally, we choose the one with underground parking and an elevator.
Punky is pretty happy to ride in the cart.
The real reason my kids behave in the grocery store. They know there will be snacks when we get back to the car. Boo is having freeze-dried mango slices and Punky is having a slice of apple.
Typically, we find a few things that weren't on the list.
