Before I even start, I’ll tell you that I can feel my husband’s eyes rolling. I hate grocery shopping with kids. Hate. There are inevitable meltdowns, stops for (disgusting) public bathroom breaks, and the spending of way more money than necessary. To top all of that loveliness off, you are pretty much guaranteed to spend double the amount of time in the store than you would have otherwise.
That said, a lot of the time there is no other choice. While it would be lovely to sneak out solo and run through the aisles with ease, that rarely happens. So you have to put on your big girl panties and adapt. It might not be the most fun you’ve ever had, but there are ways to make it easier.
