Who wants to go shopping with their mother?

Whenever I go shopping with my grandmother, She nit picks until this day when I pick out what I like. I have to tussle with her the whole time. It was like this as teenager and until this day. But she always likes what I wear- things I bought when she is not around. I just avoid buying clothes when I'm at the store with her. If she wants to buy something for me I say yeah that's nice and leave it at that and let her buy it. Does anybody like going shopping with their mother or grandmother?

That's great. My grandmother has excellent taste, except for some reason she nit picks what I choose. I still like to get presents from her though and won't turn anything down.

I often took my grandmother shoppin and then my aunt when she got elderly. They were both very picky shoppers. I am just talking about helping with grocery shopping and other errands.

Good that you found this discussion. I posted this a year ago and I tell ya it's still the same. Grocery shopping can be torture. Everything from how to bag to how to put the bags in the car. But alas, gotta help out right? Patience patience PATIENCE Gosh Darn it.

That last time I went shopping with my mother she was capable of walking without a walker. She was able to shop without supervision. She had control of herself and was able to make purchases sensibly. Now that she has Alzheimer's, walks with a walker for short distances only, and has to be supervised most of the time, I miss shopping with my mom. I would give anything to have that back.

Those memories are good to be cherished in our jewelry box of memories. She would really enjoy going out shopping again with the the two of you. And buy some extras like ice cream and funnel cakes.

@db20747 I have told her that I would push her in a wheelchair. She didn't like that idea.

I love going shopping with my mom! I like to help her find deals. My grandmother is a picky shopper so I don't often go with her shopping.

I guess our grandmothers have been shopping for a long time. I guess they are set in their ways. They know what will lasts a long time and what has quality. We'll just have to go along when we shop with them.

@db20747 Yes! Agreed. My grandma loves quality clothing. I do too but I like for them to go on sale.
