Some people find shopping to be a relaxing experience. After you”ve had a bad day or a stressful week, you can always go to the mall and bask in some retail therapy. Getting a new pair of shoes or a new dress could easily make you feel a little bit better on the inside, and could go a long way in terms of general happiness. Is this healthy? Debatable, but it works!
Sadly, kids don”t understand retail therapy. Most of the time, they are forced to head to the mall against their will and watch as their parents shop for happiness. In turn, this causes them great sadness and discomfort, a fact they actually want you to know.
I”ll be with you in a minute.
I”m in a glass case of emotion.
Someone will pick these up.
The grocery store is the worst.
Some devious deeds are about to be done.
Help! I”ve become twisted!
Not even the mannequins can comfort this kid.
This is how you know a kid is really bored.
Unfreeze me when you”re done shopping.
This should stop you in your tracks.
Someone has been doing gymnastics.
I”ll blink once if I hate the mall.
Either donating or stealing shoes.
Get this kid out of here!
The perfect place to sleep.
I”ll just read a book while you do this.
The next time you need a dose of retail therapy, make sure you get a babysitter. You don”t want your kids dragging down the pick-me-up that you so desperately need. Plus, they can”t ask you to buy them a toy, so you”re probably saving money in the end.
