Re: Tantrums in the grocery store
This is the OP. You wonderful ladies have so many great suggestions! Today I had to go the store for a few things, and I let him walk so long as he held the cart. He did great and loved it for about 5 minutes. Then he let go and took a step back, giving me a look out of the corner of his eye. So I scooped him up and put him in the cart, and he was fine about it.
I also love the idea of a toddler shopping list. In restaurants, I have given him my phone before. But in the grocery store, I'm too worried that he'll throw it. Also, wearing him is not an option...he is too heavy, and I am pregnant.
I am also daydreaming about a grocery store with childcare!
