Comments for Grocery Shopping
Grocery Shopping: 03/16/07
One of the biggest things that has changed since going back to being a one car family is that I have to be the one to do the grocery shopping if we run out of something in the middle of the week. Today I realized that we needed milk (oh how I wish we had a milkman!) and ice cream (for Ian's birthday party tomorrow night). With the unusual summer-like heat, I knew the ice cream would melt if I got it first before picking up Sean. So I ended up grocery shopping with both kids.
I've been shopping with Harriet since she was about two weeks old and I started driving again. Sean, though, I haven't done much shopping with in long time and I think today was the first time I went shopping with both of them.
Sean was a huge help. He got the items out of the refrigerators for me so that I wouldn't have to bend over (sometimes a difficult thing to do if Harriet is squirrelly in her sling). He was able to bring me the gallon jugs of milk. He helped push the car around (even though it's still taller than he is) and always stayed right at my side.
Sean actually made the trip easier! I'm so proud of him.
