Shopping

Today I was wandering around our local Target looking for Vaseline. Do you realize how hard it is to find such a simple beauty aid? I had read that it is good for dry nails and cuticles which is my currnt problem. I finally found it.

Then while I was looking for some emery boards I heard a mother and her little girl who was probably only 2 years old. The little one was checking out nail polishes and chattering with her mother. Suddenly she heard a baby crying. Of course, she had to tell her mother that the baby was crying and her mother agreed. Then this little child said, "How sad". It was so cute.

This little 2 year old was so well behaved and articulate. I haven't seen a 2 year old so articulate since my son was that age. I told the mother that she must spend a lot of time speaking with her child. A child that well behaved, aticulate and observant must be raised by stay at home mom.

It must be a sign of age, but I find myself talking more and more with fellow shoppers, giving hints about products, the futility of carefully selecting cat food and commenting on the good behavior of their children. When I was younger, I certainly would not have offered my opinion to a perfect stranger.

OMG! I am so the same way, although I never was in the past. Now, I feel that they can use my expertise, whether they appreciate it or not, lol. I mean, hey - we have experience, right?
