Ember fell asleep in the car on the drive over. Ember is the biggest grump when she wakes up and refuses to walk into stores. I usually hold her (and Everett in his carseat) while walking into the store and then put both of them in a cart. Problem is her in the seat of the cart and Everett’s carseat in the basket of the cart fills it up and there’s no room for food! So I wisely wore her in the ergo this shopping trip. It was perfect! I didn’t have to worry about keeping an eye on her, she was happy as a clam, and there was a bit of extra room in the cart!
I bribed my kids with a quarter machine toy at the end if they were good. Surprisingly, they were all perfect! It was such a relief to shop and have them all stay mellow, not touch stuff, and stay near me!
