Yes, it's fun, but it's also a lot of responsibility.

Yesterday Helen and I went to Target. Daycare takes the kids out twice a day, and it's getting cold enough here to need a coat. Helen has grown a bit since last winter, so we needed to go shopping.

It's never a good idea to let me into a Target supervised by only a 17-month old.

Helen is now the proud parent of a Fisher Price baby. She held that doll all the way to the register, where there was a bit of a struggle to get it scanned. There was an even bigger struggle when we got home and I tried to get the doll out of its packaging.

The baby came with a little bottle, and after spending a lot of time (at her insistence) "feeding" the baby, I've taught her how to do it. I tried to teach her how to "burp" the baby, but she just hugs her instead.

Cold?

Yeah, yeah, I know - child's play compared to your winters. ;)

I was just talking the other day about our massive pre-trip Target shopping for the Cousin Trips....

Ah yes, the Cousin Trip to Target. Generally where I bought everything I needed for the upcoming vacation, including the suitcase.

Turns out it's a way more expensive vacation if you go that route.

I'm just saying -- you had a long history of uncontrolled shopping at Target long before the small one came along.... The first step is admitting you have a problem.
