Hard Work

Yesterday was grocery shopping day for this Mommy and it seems I had a little helper tag along. I only go to the grocery store every couple weeks, so it was going to be a big trip. Emma decided to join me, so we loaded her little grocery cart up and headed out with a list in hand. Yes, she wore her "cheer weader outfit" for the 3rd day straight. She loves to play dress up and pretend all the time.

She was quite the little helper and wanted to fill her buggy completely up, as you can tell she succeeded. It was the cutest little thing and I was so proud of how well she did following behind me every step of the way. She kept up and was exhausted by the time we got to the frozen section.

We were getting close to the end of the trip here and she kept taking things out of her basket and telling me she was starving.

Needless to say, she had to get a little snack to be able to make it through the rest of the trip. She kept saying, "This is hard work Mommy, this is hard work" and as soon as we walked in the door she told her Daddy the same thing.

I must admit that this was the most memorable grocery shopping trip ever. Emma did such an awesome job and was as helpful as could be. I think God knew what he was doing when he gave me this baby girl to share life with....what do you think?
