Thanks to my Facebook ‘Memories’, I was reminded of this little story today from when my youngest was 3 years old:

‘To say shopping today was a ‘trying’ experience is a complete understatement. Obviously noticing the pained expression on my face, an old lady said “patience is a virtue” to which I replied, “I know, I just can’t find what aisle it’s in!!” then my son promptly threw a 1kg tub of yogurt out of trolley spreading it all over the floor in front of her! :/ Virtue that !!

I can laugh now, but I remember just how much I dreaded the weekly shopping trip with the kids in tow!

  • Haha, there’s always a “helpful” person around when you’re child is in a challenging phase.


  • Hahaha don’t you just love those little Facebook memories?! I know I enjoy being reminded of what was happening 3 years ago, things ice often forgotten


  • Argh… aren’t kids such levellers of patience and truth.


  • It does all get easier doesn’t it! (Until it gets hard again!).. great to have the memories however you keep them.


  • I really love those facebook memories that come up nearly everyday. Reminds me of so many funny and emotional times

    • Some people loathe them – but I love them too!


  • Facebook memories – yep they can remind us of these delights!
