Without Kids : Try couple of dresses & Scratch your head for an hour thinking what to wear.Do your hair and makeup for hoursss , Grab your phone,keys , handbag and get going.

With Kids : First dress your kids,give them some snacks to eat,go pick whichever dress you find in the first row.If there’s alot of ย time ,then do your makeup and hair in 10minutes. Go check the diaper of your kids if it’s need a change.Grab your handbag,wait handbag????I mean Diaper bag in one hand,lift your ย kid with other ย and get going.

Without Kids : You make a note of things you need to buy in a paper before you leave the house.

With Kids : Never make this mistake of writing your list in a paper.You see your List ripped or eaten.

Without Kids :ย Get into the car, play some nice loud music of your choice,enjoy the drive, park the car , get out of the car, walk through the store.

With Kids : Strap your kids into a car seat,give some toys to play.Get into the car ,Play some music , i mean “RHYMES” so that your child sits calmly through out the drive.On arriving, park the car,unstrap your child,grab a shopping cart, place him in the cart and walk through the store.

Without Kids : You can walk anywhere and every corner of the mall.

With Kids : DO NOT !!! I repeat DO NOT walk infront of the toy stores.If you walk by accidentally , you are never coming back home . I don’t know why they purposely put the toy stores in the middle of the mall leaving us with no choice.

Without Kids : After 1 hour you are done with your shopping.

With Kids : It’s been 2 hours and you din’t buy a single thing which is on your list.

Without Kids : Wait in line for checkout,swipe your card and done.

With Kids : There’s always a big line and you have to wait for atleast 10-15 minutes and when it’s your turn to checkout ,either your kid wants to pee/poop or he runs outside the store.

Without Kids : Exit the door with some shopping bags in both your hands.walk calmly to the car,get in and back home.

With Kids : Your kids never wants to go back home with their empty hands, he say he wants “guii” and you don’t know what that means.He won’t explain and starts screaming guii guii louder and louder & You left with no other choice than to pick him up with one hand and shopping bags in your other hand.walk quickly towards car,strap your kids and back home.

  1. Oh man, this is true. I prefer shopping WITHOUT my kids when I can. My son isn’t so bad, but my daughter needs to look at all the toys, all her clothes, all the shoes…it takes forever.

  2. omg! i feel you i have a daughter and i do experience these things. although if i bring her to the mall, a must is to stop over in a toy store before going home haha

  3. I don’t have kids. So I guess I do everything on the list that says without kids. This list would actually make parents life more easier and organized. Loved it. I love your theme for your blog.

  4. Shopping with kids is a struggle! Thankfully, I’ve trained my nieces to see shopping as mission. I give them important jobs to “save the city of Townsville.” Townsville needs this or that. What would a Power Puff do to save the day? They love it. We’re in and out of a store within 30 minutes.

  5. Oh yes, I remember those days very well! Shopping with my kids when they were young, especially when I had 4 aged 6 and under was a bit of a challenge. I always found that I needed to do it early in the morning when the stores were less crowded and they had just gotten up and were all in good moods!

  6. Basically when you have kids, it’s so much more chaotic. Plus they get bored and tired easily so you can’t stay long and shop for more stuff.

  7. LOL it was so funny, I guess it is all about the preactice you get with the time, when my baby was just a few months I got crazy! but now that she is 15 months I just put her on her car and we have a lot fun together and she waits for me haha

  8. Oh yes, this brings back memories. ๐Ÿ™‚ My children are grown but I have two dogs and a cat who act a lot like toddlers.

  9. lol. This post made me laugh. I have not had the pleasure of shopping with children. I have avoided them at all costs while doing my own shopping though! I do feel bad for some of the parents I see shopping.

  10. Been there, done that, lol! Can’t get much fruitful shopping done with kids in tow, but now I wouldn’t want it any other way either:) This crazy, roller-coaster life with kids is busy, cluttered, and so ..grrrrrr…wow….my lil wonderboy jus puked on me……can’t wait to read the next post

  11. It is completely amazing to me how a shopping experience at the exact same store, the same time, and with the same amount of money to spend can be totally two different adventures when you go alone vs. laden with kids. Shopping with kids is one of my least favorite chores. Thank God for Amazon.

  12. I find shopping such an unpleasant experience as it is that I would never bring a small child with me to try and do it, lol! I used to time it for when I could leave the kids at home with my husband.

  13. HA! This is hilarious! I cannot, under any circumstance, walk passed the Lego isle in any store! I mean, sometimes I feel like he has some kind of antenna that allows him to find the smallest lego set in the darkest corner of the store. It amazes me at times.

  14. hahaha! I am neutral at this point for now. Will let you know the experience when I’ll have kids.

  15. Shopping with kids makes you save money, lol. Because they get bored easily and you’ve no choice but to stop whatever you’re doing and just go home. These are all so true though!
