I have never been much of a shopper. I like having clothes to wear that are comfortable and look good, but I'm not up on the latest fashions nor do I have a closet overflowing with skirts and slacks and shoes. In fact, I consider it a huge win if I'm able to find something I like and buy it in multiple colours. So, as you may imagine, I don't tend to spend hours browsing the racks.
Anyway, something came up that I needed to buy a new outfit for. I didn't want to have to ask anyone to watch Sprout, so I brought her with me. I thought I was quick on shopping trips before, I am now Usain Bolt.
After the two minute drive to the nearby mall, Sprout got tossed into the umbrella stroller, we walked into one store, I tried on six items, and we walked out with my new outfit. DONE. Seriously, that's unheard of even for someone who is a quick shopper, right?
I'll get Jen's opinion tonight, but barring any negative comments from her, I think today's trip might qualify for a Guinness Book of World Records submission.
It reminded me of what it's like getting a shower (...or eating ...or going pee) after you've had a kid: You never knew you could do it so quickly. Remarkable really.
