For a while we were making grocery shopping a family thing. Saturday mornings we would all go together to shop.
Then we moved. We're over 20 minutes from where we shop so I made a change and now I take the girls by myself after work one day to get it over with.
Everyone makes it out like having two kids and shopping is sooo difficult. I really don't find it that way. Annabel sits in the front of the cart and usually holds my list and pen for me. I have to take the pen away a few times during the trip so she doesn't eat it, but other than that she's always easy going in most situations.
Annika will either walk, which can be a pain because she touches everything! Or she'll sit in the main part of the car and play games on my phone. This makes the trip even easier. Luckily I don't buy a ton of stuff so she can fit in the cart with all our food. I split our shopping up between two stores because Walmart just doesn't have all the organic stuff that I like to buy sometimes.
When we first get into the store Annika always begs to ride in one of those cars that costs 50 cents to ride on. It's a stupid little yellow car with a lady that talks in a British accent but she loves riding it and now Annabel does too.
So if we make it to the check out line and they've both been good I give Annika the 50 cents to hold on to.
Then they ride.
I love that these two make me smile everyday.
