Our son loves to go out. He is always pointing to the door and wants to either go for a car ride, or a stroll to the park.
He is getting faster than ever. Yesterday, I had to go to our local supermarket to pick up a few things. My son hates the seat on the shopping cart and much prefers the large cargo section of the cart.
He stands and loves to look at all the products on the shelves. Unfortunately he loves it so much that now he likes to grab everything in site. I try to search the aisles while going down the middle of the lanes so he can not reach anything, but unfortunately that is just plain rude to the other customers. He grabs apples, oranges, pasta boxes, cereals...anything he can get those cute little fingers on. This makes my quick supermarket stop quite a fiasco. It is obviously much easier if he is in a stroller or buckled down somehow...but I can not push a cart and a stroller.
Yesterday as I was unloading my items at the register, I saw, a tiny stem of squashed grapes, my little angel must have taken from the fruit stand, I found an orange with two puncture holes in it..of course matching the only two teeth my son has in his mouth. The clincher was the sanitary napkins he must have grabbed while I was looking for deodorant.
It is just not feasible to wait for my partner to come and help when I need to do some food shopping.
Come on Moms and Dads...help me out a little. What do you do?
