Crazy-Shopping 101


What do you get when you take four overly-excited children racing through the grocery store, each with their own made-for-kids shopping cart?

A nail-biting mother afraid for every uncovered heel in the entire store!

Can't you just hear the wheels of each cart rattling out of control, darting in and out of many a precarious path at extreme speeds, or see the crazed eyes of a child with complete shopping cart-Independence? I'm sure your imaginings are not exaggerated!

I rarely go to the grocery store with all my kids; however, with Ben out of town I had no choice. It's amazing what a smiling mother can get away with. Somehow, my kids' antics were "Ahhhhh"-worthy instead of, "would you please control your children!"

It was definitely memorable, even laughable, but not a memory I'd like to revisit in the near future.
*** Lest I am labeled too-lenient a parent:), there were several moments of stopping, reminding, cautions, slowing down, etc. How quickly little, active minds forget. I'm sure you understand. ***
