The boys often complain that I don't buy anything "good" at the grocery store. I do admit that I try NOT to buy too much junk, not because I am averse to it being in the house, but that I'm averse to it being in my trunk (if you know what I mean!).
I do try to make an effort to ask the children before I go to the store if there are any special requests. And, honestly, I do try to remember them. But, as more often is the case, I forget. I really just forget. Or, it could be that I avoid that aisle entirely. At any rate, "I don't buy anything good!"
So, I mentioned that I leave my grocery list out for all to add to. And so far this method has worked for me; primarily because no one has truly taken advantage of this fact. Until now. . . .
