At the grocery store with Precious Youngest
Lady Bagging Groceries (LBG): after filling two canvas bags and setting a gallon of milk beside them “Do you need your shopping cart?”
Fannie: “No, I think we can get this.”
LBG: “One of these bags is really heavy.”*
Fannie: “That’s OK; Precious Youngest can carry that one.”
Precious Youngest: grabbing the lighter of the bags and dashing towards the door “No mom, I think you’d better carry the rest yourself. I don’t want you getting dependent on me. Otherwise you might not survive when I leave for college.”
*Note: Those canvas bags are huge and they hold a lot, but holy crap they can get heavy!
