I need to go to the supermarket today and do some pre-Thankgiving food shopping so this morning I decided to put together a list. While doing so, my 3-yr-old daughter, Lyla, approached and asked me what I was doing.
I told her I was making a list of food and groceries to get at the supermarket and she replied that she wanted to make one, too. So, mostly humoring her, I asked her what needed to be on the list, though I’m not sure why I bother humoring her when it’s becoming clear that she’s smarter than me.
Anyway, (without any prompting and in the order she mentioned each item) the following is exactly what she told me to put on her list:
- Apple Juicey
- Fruit Snacks
- Rectangle Crackers (AKA: Graham Crackers)
- Sour Creamy
- Colored Cereal
- Charm Cereal
- More veggies for dipping
- Yo-grut (this is spelled incorrectly on purpose per her pronunciation)
- Ranch Dressing
Not a bad list. I’ll need to add a few items of my own and maybe remove at least one (or perhaps both) of those sugary cereals she seems to love so much but all in all it’s a pretty decent shopping list… especially for a 3-yr-old.
I’m actually kind of surprised she didn’t include ice cream (Va-lil-la is her fave). I think I’ll go ahead and add that one in anyway!
