  1. Haha! This made me laugh out loud! I have 4 yr old twins, a 2 year old, and another on the way. Where I live we can rarely even find the carts that seat 3, and the ones that seat 2 don’t usually have buckles that actually work. I can totally identify with having those totally insanely brave “I can do this” moments that rarely ever work out the way you picture them in your head. The last time I went shopping in a cart with broken buckles that only seated 2 of my 3, after sending my 4 year olds to find her and them getting lost… one of the store clerks brought my screaming 2 year old back to me while I was in the check-out line, told me that she was trying to pull a 60 inch flat screen off of it’s stand b/c it was playing Elmo, and politely asked me to keep her in the basket. On almost any other day, I can keep them all contained. This just wasn’t one of those days!

  2. Joanne, thanks so much for writing this! I can absolutely imagine the scene at the grocery store. You painted quite a vivid picture. It makes me chuckles, but I’m sure I’ll be in that same situation one day. 🙂

  3. Far be it from me to give you advice, but I have a daycare of five little ones between almost 3 to newly 4, 14 month age span. I use a Step 2 Choo-Choo wagon when we all go out. We go to the store all the time in it. For me I just have one walk so I have a space for food, but you can have up to five cars each with a seat, a seat belt, and a cup holder. I also added the Radio Flyer umbrellas for shade. We are a walking parade float, but they are contained and can’t touch each other!
