A few months ago we discovered that the Smith’s Food and Drug between Patrick’s school and our house has child size shopping carts available between their customer service desk. Now, at every opportunity, that’s where we do our shopping.
He loves the independence and is getting better at not taking everything off of the shelf or running away.
I find it exhausting, but he is happy and very cute with his little shopping cart. And, hey, it means he will happily agree to a shopping trip.
So long as we go in off-peak hours and have a short shopping list.
