Your Target is a Wonderland
Mike had to work some overtime last week which meant Jake and I had a couple days of just us which meant I was desperately looking for some quality entertainment. So, of course, we headed off to Target. Jake doesn't particularly enjoy shopping (I'm hoping Emma will fill that void for me), but I have found the perfect way to keep him content in Target. Did you know that for just $1.63 you can buy a bag of popcorn and a coke at Target? I let Jake hold the popcorn and he was so happy for the next hour. He never once asked to get down. It was seriously the best $1.63 I've ever spent. It allowed me time to browse through all of the unnecessary things that I totally need in the store. We walked away with some Christmas ornaments and an idea for a new toy organizer for the living room. But more importantly, we walked away with a new found hope for future shopping in the form of a red and white bag full of popped corn. I wonder if this is what the pilgrims were thinking about when they popped their first corn kernal. Or was it the Native Americans? Either way, I'm sure it TOTALLY had something to do with toddler entertainment.
