First time in a shopping cart

I almost never go grocery shopping with the twins. I always go on weekends when my husband is home with them or on my way home from work. Before I went back to work, I'd sometimes be on a walk with them and swing by the store on our way home, but they'd be in their stroller. I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to grocery shop without a stroller when you have twin infants. There is only one seat in the cart! The whole point of this is a round-about way of saying that they've never really sat in a shopping cart! But today, I had to run out for some fish, and Drake was kind of fussy and seemed like he could use an outing, so my hubby and I divided and conquered and D and I headed out to Whole Foods. Drake loved sitting in the cart! He held on to the handlebar so he wouldn't tip to either side, but other than that, he sat there as straight as a needle, looking around, smiling at everyone. And it was fun for me, too, to have my little dude keep me company while on as boring a task as fish-shopping.

Yeah for shopping!

Luckily for us, the shopping carts at our local grocery store are double carts and therefore can fit both boys. They LOVE it! And like you, I was so pleased that Ben could sit up so well and hold on.

I am glad Drake enjoyed himself! Isn't Whole Foods so relaxing? I love it. They just opened up a brand new one near us, we are addicted.

Max loves riding around in carts, too. His favorite place is Costco!

It is SO difficult dealing with hauling around 2 infants/toddlers by yourself, that's for sure.

I remember how excited I was the first time Alex had enough trunk control to sit up in the cart!!! Yeah for overcoming challenges!!
