Want to come along with the Reluctant Housewife family on a few shopping trips?
I know you do!
Let's get going... First to Ikea!
Hubby and I decided to make a Christmas shopping trip to Ikea last weekend. The idea was to put the kids in the ball room while we shopped at leisure for a parents-only happy-happy-joy-time hour.
The first thing that struck us, when we walked through the front door, was all the Christmas decorations. The boys were very excited to see the Christmas trees.
When we went to register at the ball room, there was a 45 minute wait. The boys were determined to have their fun, though, so we signed up and were given a pager to notify us when two spaces had opened up.
We walked around the corner and found one of the living room set-ups, complete with toys and books. So we sat down and made ourselves comfortable to wait out our 45 minutes in peace (much to the amusement of the other shoppers, I'm sure: "What are these people doing?" "They do realized they're not actually at home, don't they?").
He grabbed The House at Pooh Corner and read aloud to the kids.
Buddy is holding our pager.
What a great place!
Thanks for tagging along! It's been fun.
