I went into the supermarket the other day and I went to put my 3 year old daughter in the trolley but she refused and insisted on walking, to save a tantrum I said ok.
I stopped to talk to one of my high school friends and I turned around for 2 seconds and she was gone. Straight away I went to the lolly aisle because she loved looking at all them unhealthy choices but nope she wasn’t there.
I was panicing at this point. What if she had left the store or someone had taken her?
I saw my friend was still in the fruits section so I went and asked her “Have you seen Peyton?” but nope she hadn’t. As I started walking off a lady in the loud speaker started describing my child in the ice cream section. When I walked down there Peyton was sitting on the ground she had managed to open a tub of choclate icecream and she was eating it. She had chocolate all over her top, hands and face but it was so funny. A few people walked past with disgusted looks on there faces but she’s so little and innocent I couldn’t get mad.

  • I would have been hugely relieved, but also so angry!


  • At least she has good taste….We all would love to do that. At least she got away with it due to her cuteness…..


  • Impressive! Ice cream tubs are so hard to get into!


  • If she was mine she would get more than a lecture. It would be a ban on TV and no food treats. Besides, she has already had more than a few day’s worth of treats.

    • Funny as the situation apparently was, I would have to agree with you!


  • Oh my!! She surely knows what she wants!! :-) Well, be glad that nothing worse happened! It must have been so scary not being able to find her immediately!


  • That is really funny and so cute and being a mother I would see the funny side too . Of course being a parent I wouldn’t be able to keep quiet and would lecture her how wrong it was blah blah. I guess you had to pay for her icecream too .
