Since I don't take my camera with me to grocery store, you will be graced with my drawings.
No need to thank me.
I took the boys to the grocery store on Friday afternoon. I thought that I was taking them during a non-busy time, but I was dead wrong. It was packed. I wasn't about to put the boys back into the truck and head home, so I put them into the cart with the little cozy coupe attached, strapped them in & proceeded with our grocery shopping.
Shoppers would stop us & say how handsome & well-behaved they were. They were being so good and I was proud.
When it came time to check out, there were 3 lanes open and they were four-people deep. We had a bit of waiting to do. I was able to keep the boys occupied during the first 5 minutes of the wait, but as time went on, they wanted out of the car.
We move forward in line (why is it taking so damn long?!) and I immediately realize that I'm in a bit of trouble.
The boys are in the car & I am behind the cart. As we pull into the aisle, the cart (and the boys)are wedged between the check-out & the candy display. Nolan was the lucky little guy who had access to the candy. Since the woman in line behind me had her cart practically on my heels, I had very little wiggle room.
I never give him candy bars or gum (obviously), but he was pulling it off the racks by the fist-full. I couldn't pull the cart forward & I couldn't back it out. I was wedged there trying my hardest to get him to pay attention to me & not the candy.
We left with the store with a few extra "groceries" that day. The next time I go grocery shopping, unless I am with my husband, we're foregoing the cozy coupe cart & opting for a regular cart.
