Grocery Shopping with My Littles

I remember when Em was first born I was petrified of going grocery shopping with two kids. I would never do any errands during the week and save everything until Saturday. I learned early on though that this was a terrible idea because it meant that I was running to 10 different places all on Saturday, and it meant that I never got to enjoy my weekend. 

Now I actually look forward to the idea of having to run errands during the week because it gives us something to do to get out of the house. I also know if I keep the errand relatively short, it will actually be a pleasant, and enjoyable experience. 

Jay loves riding in the shopping cart! He can often be found reaching back to give his baby sister in the back some sweet rubs on her head and giving her toys when she gets antsy. Its been so fun to watch him fully embrace the big brother roll over the last few months. It took a while to get there, but I feel like I can confidentially say that Jay super loves Em. Which is good, because she's not going anywhere. 

A couple weeks ago we headed to Walmart to grab some Wet Ones®, and some Pepperidge Farm® Goldfish Crackers for a picnic we were going on (and because Jay is starting preschool and we needed lunch box supplies... and a life without Goldfish Crackers, and something to wipe your hands with afterwards, is a very sad, scary, and messy life), and it was fun to document the very last time we will ever have this grocery shopping setup. Em has finally outgrown her infant car seat so we'll no longer be strolling the isles like this anymore. Any tips for grocery shopping with two kids while one of them still can't support themselves sitting in the grocery cart are well appreciated. Oh wait, that's what my baby carrier is for. 

Not pictured, Jay's excitement to wipe down his hands with a Wet Ones Singles wipe after he devoured one of these bananas on the five second car ride home.

Be sure to head on over to Wet Ones website for a chance to win a year supply of Wet Ones wipes for your home, and your child's classroom. Plus $1000 cash!
