5 year old shopping spree

My boys busy at work. It was pure chaos!

It has been a few very busy weeks for us with the store makeover happening. My kids are getting  sick of me telling them we have to go to the store "again". It's not the best place for them. They like to run free and get into trouble.. and of course a retail store isn't the best place for that.

Last night I had them there again while my hubby (after a long day of work) helped me figure out our new hemp fabric ceiling... and let me say it's not the easiest job with the 16 feet or so he had to climb to get to the top.

So while Dad was up on the ladder, I told my 5 year old to stay busy and "make mom a Valentine". So he ran away to the counter and was quiet and busy for what seemed like forever. 

Then he started coming to ask me questions. "Mom, what's your favourite colour?". "Mom, is this your size?". Of course I was busy and not really paying attention. Before I realized he had gone ahead and filled the paper bag he decorated to the top with gifts!

I attempted to tell him he couldn't just "take" everything from the store, but it was so darn adorable I figured I could simply sneak a few things back after he proudly gifted me all the treasured he had chosen. He did such a great job! I'm going to have a hard time returning them. Take a peek here:

His choices for Mom; Red Hemp Socks, Pink Preloved Mittens, a Red Bamboo Tee, and a Starfish Mystic Glass Necklace. There was also an adorable fleece lined headband but I forgot I was already wearing it!

The cutest part was at the bottom of the bag all these little "Wild Things"... :-)
