“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”
Taking little kids to the grocery store isn’t so easy. Trying to navigate the aisles of a store with tiny arms reaching out from the cart, or tiny legs running off in the opposite directon, can turn a quick errand into a 2-hour headache.
I guess this would be the part where I give you some tips from my years of experience of taking kids to the store. I could tell you how to make the trips easier on yourself or how to plan the errands at a time when you can easily get a sitter.
But instead, I’m going to share some pictures of our recent grocery trip, when I let the girls bring along their toy shopping cart to “help me”. We got lots of smiles from store employees and fellow shoppers; we also got a few stink-eyes from people who were almost run over by my little energetic cart-pushers.
Taking a toy grocery cart to the store is not one of the ways I’d suggest to make your trip easier. However, it was absolutely memorable – for me and I hope for them too. Giving my girls the chance to play store – FOR REAL – was worth every stink-eye and exasperated “harumph.”
These images were shot on Fuji Pro400H film with a Canon EOS5 35mm camera. I’m taking part in a blog circle through Light Inspired, and I’d love it if you could click through to Jill’s Blog to see her film blog post this month!
