Ah, the Grocery Store

The grocery store had gotten easy, very managable, even enjoyable. And now preschool is out.

When we got to the store Ruby and Eliza were asleep. I thought if I got the stroller out then maybe they would go back to sleep in it. No luck. Of course having the stroller means I have to do the old push the stroller, pull the cart routine. And having Charlotte with me meant finding a place for her. We decided to use the buggy board (it attaches to the back of the stroller and gives her a place to ride).

What I forgot until we were in the store is I can't push the stroller one handed when Charlotte is on the buggy board. The stroller is too heavy. But I must push the stroller one handed or I can't pull the cart. I muscled through for a while and then Charlotte decided she wanted to ride in the cart. Much better. But of course then she had to go to the bathroom and we were on the other end of the store. Then she wanted out of the cart but wouldn't stay with me. And then she wanted to know if we were done yet. And then she had to go potty AGAIN!

We made it, got everything we needed and I managed to get home with all three girls.

And next week, Rehm will get to go to the store too! Oh joy, I'm so excited I don't know if I can wait till next week! Won't that be so much fun? Hmm maybe I won't need to go next week. I bought a whole lot this week...

Happy Shopping,

Did you ever do the video ad?

We did one but our file was too big to upload and we couldn't figure out how to get it smaller by the dead line.

It wasn't very good anyway. Oh well, maybe next time.

We need to get you a grocery store with home delivery - it would be well worth any delivery charge!! Or you need to start doing your shopping at 10 pm - that was my answer and I only had 2 little ones. The bonus was that usually hubby was also asleep when I got back so I could get everything put away in peace. :)
