This is R3 on our grocery shopping excursion during his Track Out. Once I got him past the most annoying kids carts that are like navigating a Hummer limo down Wake Forest Road, I thought I was going to be fine. Get him a free cookie and we’d be good to roll. I had put off grocery shopping for too long and was in it to win it this trip. What terrible planning on my part.
I was overcome by a flood of grocery shopping memories. The time I had to abandon my full cart to get my screaming kid out of the store, the constant, “mommy can I have this,” the one who threw himself on the floor because he needed a hot wheel and so on. We’ve all been there!
A long time ago, as a stay at home mom, I came to the realization that I needed to embrace the joy and privilege of being home with my kids. It was not an enlightened moment but rather necessary for my survival. I survived and know I will survive the next three weeks.
Here is all the extra junk I bought shopping with R3 +Danimals Crunchables.
