After Mike wrote about how well-behaved Annie is for him at the store, I told him that he could a) always take her with him to the store, and b) that I wanted him to get video of it. I love these smart phones with the built-in cameras. Anyway, he came home yesterday with some videos to show me and…well, at least they had fun and didn’t break anything.
Oh my that was so cute!! She did so good. I love Mike at the end, “so we’re getting balloons”
You got off easy with him just coming home with balloons. Just wait till she has him take her to the mall!!! Love it!
I was thinking the same thing……just wait!!!! Dad will be BROKE!!!!
Looks like a little someone has her daddy wrapped around her sweet, little finger!!! Ha ha ha You’re a GREAT daddy Mike!!
That’s some amazing driving on those corners–way to go, Annie. I was holding my breath and you handled it like a pro!
Nice cart driving! She’ll be ready for the races soon!

Very cute, my hubby would of never took our daughter to the store alone, Kudos Mike.
Haha, love the shot of the balloons and next thing you know Annie is holding them. Then he says at the end “ok, we’re getting balloons.”
This age can be so frustrating but so hilarious too!
I think she was very well behaved and helpful! And her motor coordination skills are amazing. Can’t believe how well she pushed around that cart.
That was adorable!
I would have gotten her the balloons too. I’m surprised that Mike didn’tget her the Cars pull ups to in the never ending battle to be the favorite parent lol.
My husband would never have gone to the store period, much less take one of our kids. I once sent him with a list and he came home with half of it, claiming that they were all out of Ketchup, uh huh, right…..
Haha..love the “We’re getting balloons” at the end. Great video as always!
Awesome! I love how patient you are with her. I don’t think my kids ever got to “experience” grocery shopping.
I love it! “Hold, hold, hold!?” “…So, we’re getting balloons.” Fabulous! You’re a great dad, Mike. Annie is a lucky little girl.
I am curious how long that trip took and did they come home with anything other than: apples, balloons, diapers and napkins?!? LOL!
Seriosuly though I love taking my kids to the store just not for a full, weekly trip because I’ve got that down to a science and get in and out like a ninja shopper!
You guys are just so hilarious!
Love it!!! I always tend to buy so much more when I have a kid with me…you should see the cart when I take all four!
she could obviously go do the grocery shopping on her own now. she might only come home with diapers & balloons..but that’s ok.
Love it, so cute!! Liked how she was all matter of fact about the diapers, like that’s where she was headed the whole time.

Heh. At first, I was like “wait, who’s talking?” I don’t think I’ve heard Mike’s natural voice before, just his “Rigby” voice.
Very impressive cart pushing!
We love Annie videos- almost nothing gets my kids (2 1/2 and 4 1/2) running in to the room faster than when I say “hey- there’s a new Annie video!” Although now they’re questioning why I don’t let them push the cart alone
That was adorable. I’d have wanted to “hold balloons” too!
haha, Annie’s face when she dropped the second apple in the scale was priceless!
She’s so cute! You can tell you two are just wonderful parents!!! Wish you all the best!

so cute and such a good helper
The background music at the store was classic. Annie is so cute! I think she earned a few balloons.
How bruised were your apples?
Our local grocery store gives all the kids a balloon, a piece of cheese the size of your head, and a cookie. Mea lovvvveeesss going to the store.
Do all grocery stores in LA play classic *NSYNC on the loudspeakers? I’d move to LA just for that.
That was adorable! Heather, were you a little confused about the balloons when they got home?

From one Daddy’s girl to another – good job Annie, you look like you have Daddy wrapped around your little finger already! Mike you are an awesome Dad Annie will treasure those moments when she grows up.
“One….two…go!” I love it!
Oh, god, that was priceless! My stomach hurts from laughing so hard! Mike’s “Umm…… um…..,” was the best! Please, more candid videos!!
“Ok…I guess we’re getting balloons”! LMAO on that one. Seriously Mike that was awesome!
Love! And hey, if Annie enjoys pushing the cart so much, might I suggest a toy shopping cart for her to bring to the store? I bet she’d enjoy that, and I’ve heard kids do really well with them – keeps them focused and feeling “grown up”.
OH THE CUTE.
She is the cutest toddler on the planet.
Wow what a great helper she is! Picking out the right items when you ask for them; I bet she’s learning a lot. And if the cart has enough stuff in it, it’ll be too heavy for her to RUN down the aisle with until she’s a little bigger!
A happy shopping helper in exchange for a balloon? I think its worth it
I love that “Okay, we’re getting balloons.” Also, I am TOTALLY impressed by Annie’s cart steering/turning abilities. I’m pretty sure my 5 year old can’t steer that well.
I just squealed because *NSYNC’s Tearing Up My Heart is playing over the loud speaker! I am crazy! Also, I love *NSYNC!!
Also, I love how Mike just kept saying UM…

That is SO ADORABLE! I’d take that kid to the grocery store anytime, she’s so well behaved and helpful and cute
