The Money Store

Briar was sitting in the back of the car as she explained with great solemnity to Avery -

"We cannot have the ice cream. We cannot have it because Mom has no money and Daddy has to be at his office making money. Only after we go to the money store can we be getting the ice cream. Ok? Alright? The money store then ice cream, got it?"

It got me thinking, I have some errands that need running.

Visit the Sleep Store.

Pop into the Self-grooming Supermarket.

Hit the Extra-hours-in-the-day Superstore.

Swing through the Second Shower Shop.

Go to the Patience Mart.

Then again, maybe I'll just hit the Money Store and pay someone else to do it all.

If you could give me directions to the Money Store, I'd be greatly appreciated.

Hopefully, it's just around the corner from the Stretch Mark Eliminator Boutique and next to the Clean-House-In-A-Minute Shoppe.

My kids think money just comes out of the machine or you just need to swipe your card to buy something!

A hard concept to teach.

I would love to find the dinner-is-already-made store.

Amanda said...

If you find the money store can you let me know where it is?!
Well i'm off now to lose 14lbs a day store!

I love Briar's explanation, it shows you how they really do listen to what we say.

Mine doesn't have a sibling so his monologues are to himself. This was his morning wake-up monologue the other day, the day after he had a HUGE meltdown in a store because he couldn't have a model car:

"Jordan, I know you're upset but Mommy said it's time to go. You're too little for that model car, you have to wait till you get bigger and Daddy will build a model car with you."

Sometimes these little talks to himself are so sweet they bring tears to my eyes.

Is it alright if I tag along? :)

Manager Mom said...

That's very cute. When you find the sleep store can you give me their number???

How about an open-air Lose Your Belly Farmer's Market?

Kimberly said...

Yeah, I'm looking for the Clean House Emporium myself.
