Shopping With The Boys

Normally, I don't take the boys to the mall. We usually stick to Safeway or Target and that's a chore that I never really look forward to! On the rare occasions that we do end up at the mall, I would never even think about trying anything on. Well, this evening I was reminded why that is.

The boys and I are in Tennessee right now and I agreed to take my 11 year old sister to the mall while our mom was getting her hair done. The boys were great while we ate dinner in the food court. Then Aiden got a little wild, running through a department store while pushing Holden in the stroller, making up karate type dances to music playing in the shoe store and then Holden started screaming to be held...

With my sister pushing Aiden in the stroller and me carrying Holden on my hip, it was calm enough for me to think that it might be a good idea to try on some cute summer dresses at Wet Seal.

All four of us filed into a dressing room and it started out really well. Mandy held Holden and Aiden sat quietly on the bench. It wasn't until I was trying on the last dress, that Aiden got bored. That's when he decided to open the dressing room door and scream,

"Look at my mommy! She's NAKED! Look at my NAKED mommy!!!"

I peered out the door and there were 2 teenage boys sitting outside the dressing rooms. My sister started cracking up. This made Aiden laugh and he kept shouting for everyone to look at his naked mommy.

Just to state a fact. I was never naked in the dressing room. And when he was yelling that I was, I was still wearing the dress that I had been trying on. I don't think I will be trying on anything else unless someone is watching the boys outside the dressing room!

Who wouldn't want to go shopping with these little guys?!

Too funny!! Neither of my girls will sit in the stroller so I seldom go to the mall with them either. But there are some times we go and just walk around for the sheer practice of walking and staying together. The oldest is good, but the little one still likes to take off on me some times.

Oh my goodness! I couldn't help but laugh out loud at this one.

I completely understand what you are talking about. I have had similar experiences and it's like after a little time goes by I start to think 'maybe they will be good...' and boy am I wrong! Caden likes to crawl underneath the door and out while I'm half naked so that I have to run out and get him.

Yeah-no more clothes shopping with the kiddos.

So glad you are back to blogging! I haven't posted anything in so long, but am trying to stay up on my reading!

ps-hope you found a great dress! :)

There is no way that I would ever take my girls into the dressing room with me. My luck is I would be half dressed and my youngest would be crawling under the door.
