How many times have you seen a mom with a young child at the grocery store? Every time you go, right?
My kids aren’t so far past the baby/toddler stage that I’ve forgotten how challenging shopping with them could be. If I made it through the store without a tantrum or meltdown, I considered the trip a success.
Walking back to my car with my groceries, I talked with a neighborhood mom. I don’t know her name but I often see her walking with a stroller on my street. Parked next to me, we compared exercise notes as we loaded our cars.
As she buckled her son into his car seat, I grabbed her cart and returned it to the corral.
I couldn’t imagine why I’d never done this for a mother of young kids before. I absolutely hated leaving my kids in the car to run my cart back.
