Daily Life 10: Shopping Cart
Abby and I go shopping together. A lot. Okay, so it's really a Saturday morning thing for the most part. Mommy sleeps in, and we go maybe to the farmers market, maybe to the Home Depot, or maybe to the Walmart. Groceries is usually a part of this trip, so usually the Walmart is one of the places we go. So, it's possible that maybe I'm an over indulgent father, or maybe i just understand what the girl wants... She constantly tries to turn around in the cart to face the direction we are going (I think it's partly that she likes to accost people with demanding hellos). Because of this, I've taken to walking with the cart facing backwards so that Abby can face forwards. She will wave at almost anyone... as long as they don't wave at her first.
I started keeping track of my life with the girls in 2009, in a series of illustrated status updates called "Daily Life"...As I finish up collecting some of these stories for print books, and catch up on some freelance work, I thought it would be a good time to post some of these older stories, so that everything is collected here on the blog. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have. :)
