The Store

"Want to go to the store?" I asked Miss E. She loves to go places, so I knew that would make her happy. I put her shoes on her, got together all the masses of gear needed to travel anywhere with a baby. Dh packed Ace into his car seat and buckled Miss E in. We were off! We had to go to Dh's work first; he had to drop something off. This required driving past T@rget, then backtracking.

I drove past the turnoff to T@rget and Miss E started crying. "I want go store now!" I laughed, then reassured her that after we stopped by Daddy's work, we would go to the store.

As I drove, I pondered the implications of the exchange.
  1. Miss E considers T@rget to be "the store."
  2. She knows the turnoff to T@rget.
  3. She is excited to go there.

To Dh, the implications were simpler: "You go to T@rget too much."

Target is friendly, has great deals, is always an adventure, great place to Get Out of The House when the weather is hot with kids! We go there a lot too

That is too funny! We go to Target at least 2 times per week. It is a great way to waste some time during the day.

That is so cute! Miss E knows what she wants... and that's a trip to Target! Love it.

I love that I am not the only one! I told Ellie we were going to the store the other day and when I turned the opposite direction from Target, she freaked out saying, "This way! This way!"
