No peace of mind

I'm always wondering why other kids so obedient when they are shopping with their parents but not my 2 rascals. Do their parents warned them to behave themselves in shopping mall in advance before leave home, or what methods did they use to control their kids?

Jona & Iz always being so playful, I could conclude when they are out from their comfort home. Can't really sit properly during meal time or when mommy or daddy busy shopping(looking around).

The only way, I could control them at the moment is: tight both of them in their own strollers, meaning I bring 2 strollers out everytimes, I bring them for a shopping.

Last weekend, I bring them to a furniture shop, cause we intend to purchase new mattress for my boys. We already got 1 single mattress from Geetha, and find it is really comfortable to sleep on...

While Dadi busy looking around, testing it with sale person, Momi has to chase them, shouting at them - 'don't climb on the mattress', 'your shoe is dirty', 'don't climb on sofa', etc.....just exactly like a crazy woman or mad woman, and I do really pissed off sometimes to manage them...wondering why should I suffered like this since I can't bring stroller into furniture mall....

At last, I just don't care, and this is what I did to my boys to control them for a while:-

Their 'tut tut' train....

Jona busy playing with his 'tut tut train'
Both at separate corner

By just pretending it is my 'home'....They just enjoy playing with their tut tut train on the coffee table(demo set which the shop intend to sale) which they bring together with them....and, I separate both of them - each one at one corner to prevent them from fighting when one cross another border line.....


Even though the sale lady or other customers keep looking at me with one kind of look, or smiling at my kids seeing their reaction of playing their toys, I just don't bother anymore...as long as they give me a peace of mind for a while, I'm really happy liao. At least, Dadi, can look at the pricing in more details without worry have to pay out of sudden for broken stuff.

**aiyah** Being a parent is really not easy, I just have to come out with good solution, at different time.

It is easy for you to control your kids when you go shopping?
