My own poor shopping cart moments. This pix is a little fuzzy, but I hope you get the idea.
I know my meter is off in this entry, but wanted to try. Thanks for reading my attempt.
Also, I’m over at Writing from the Peak — Pikes Peak Writers Blog talking about What Happens the Morning After a Writing Challenge? I talk about PiBoIdMo and 12 x12.
Now, that’ I’ve posted mine, Enzo and I can read all the other entries.

I love the photo of the “Serious Shopper”! And I have to wonder if it was the real inspiration, or do something ‘go down’ in a past experience! Ha, ha! It was quite funny!
Love your inspiration for this and the the POV! Very funny, Stacey!
Margaret G. says
Hilarious! Love the ending. 🙂
Patricia T. says
Yes, I love the inspiration for your poem. It is so cute and funny.
Carrie Finison says
Stacy, I laughed the whole time. So true. I would have a panic attack if I lost my list.
Laura Renauld says
I loved how the child is practically scolding the fighting adults. Very clever twist!
Congrats on a really cute entry, Stacy…especially with your hubby not well. I love the underlying lesson the kid teaches us. And I love the photo of Enzo in the cart.:)
You were missed at the meeting on Sunday…and I think, perhaps we won’t be meeting tomorrow, unless it is just me and Jeanine.
I’ll go and read your guest post tomorrow. 🙂
Susanna Leonard Hill says
Fantastic inspiration photo, Stacy! 🙂 and how perfectly you have captured holiday shopping form a toddlers POV! I love that the child is the voice of reason to the adults, and that Santa’s ready to take care of the missing item! Very funny, original and entertaining – thank you for joining in the holiday contest fun!!! 🙂
Karen S. Elliott says
Sitting on a box of goldfish while reading. 🙂 How cute is that? Wonderful job on the song/poem!
This Kid Reviews Books says
FUNNY! I love how Enzo is posing! 🙂
Cathy Mealey says
Oh the magical LIST! I save my “master” list from years past to compare what my little ones wanted 3,4 even 5 years ago. Amazing how it changes (and gets more expensive)!
Great job – Merry Christmas!
August McLaughlin says
Love it! I want to hear that song now. 🙂
Happy holidays, Stacy!
I’m so glad you entered and shared this with us! It’s precious! I love Enzo’s photo. And I”m so glad you took yourself up to the idea and inspiration for this post.
Merry Christmas, Stacy! 🙂
Coleen Patrick says
Love it (and the inspiration photo)! Can you see my grinning?
Happy Holidays. 🙂
Hannah Holt says
I can totally relate. I can’t tell you how much fun it is shopping with twin toddlers. Enzo looks very happy reading his book in the cart. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
Romelle Broas says
Whew! Hope my shopping trip doesn’t go like that. Lots of fun, Stacy! Cute picture. Costco, right?
Tracy Campbell says
I can understand how Enzo was the inspiration to a delightful poem. He’s adorable. I loved that you added a chorus. 🙂
Beth Stilborn says
Lists? People use lists? So glad the guy in the red suit was willing to make up the missed item — and that the child was the one arbitrating between the adults. (LOVE the photo of Enzo!)
That os a really fun entry, so relevant! And gorgeous pic of Enzo. It’s wonderful how much he loves reading.
Beth K. Vogt says
🙂 Enjoyed this, Stacy — and identified with it!
Kelley Lynn says
That is the cutest picture ever. Seriously, send that to the goldfish people. Great marketing right there 🙂
Have a great Christmas!
Debbie Maxwell Allen says
Loved the writing, loved the picture! It puts me in the Christmas spirit!
Emily R. King says
Ha! I love it! So clever. I’m pretty sure I’ve had a similar shopping trip this season.
Merry Christmas, Stacy!
Susanne Drazic says
Hi, Stacy! I enjoyed your entry. Enzo looks so cute! Merry Christmas to you and your family!
Really cute, Stacy! Loved the “crashing into the pillow display” part!!!
