Luke now says two things when we pull into the Meijer parking lot. The first is "cookie!!" and the second is "horsie!"  As they give children free cookies at the cake counter, that is of course his first priority whenever we walk in the door, and he will not stop talking about his cookie until it is in hand.  But after he gets his cookie, Luke proceeds right onto bugging me about sitting on Sandy the horse.  

As Luke learned at Grandma & Grandpa W's house, horses eat apples.  It's unfortunate that, from where he sits on Sandy, Luke can see the full display of apples in the produce section.  Every time Luke insists that we get an apple to feed Sandy, for as he says, "horsie eat apple yummy!!!"  I have tried to explain to him that pretend horses do not eat apples, but you can imagine how well this reasoning is going over with him.

Even if he has had his cookie and his horsie ride, Luke still talks to me constantly while we're shopping, pointing out things he sees, whining for things, talking about the things in our cart and how yummy they are and reminding me that we can't eat them until we get home. He jabbers so much while he's in the shopping cart that other shoppers usually stare at us as we walk by.

I remember the very first time I took Luke to Meijer. He was just one week old, swaddled against me in a sling, and to tell you the truth I was slightly disappointed when he slept through the whole thing and missed our first shopping experience together.  These days I'm just wishing that I could find some way to get him to sleep through a shopping trip again. oh sigh...
