Re: Do you Grocery Shop with your kids or on your own

I voted it varies.

I prefer to shop alone as I get things done quicker/can run more errands than just one or two if Im with kids.

I VERY rarely take both the boys...I might as well just take a leisurely stroll than go shopping with them.

So when I do take one of them, I tell them its a special Amma and DS1/DS2 time. Yeah. A treat for them so they look forward to it and behave nicely!

If it's for a few things, with both kids at a grocery further away. If it's a lot, only the toddler at the one closest to home. The baby's bucket seat is too long, so the toddler seat isn't able to be pulled out where my toddler can sit in the cart at our closest grocery. And rather than have the bucket seat taking up the basket and the toddler at home, I do the opposite. So location makes a difference.

Rarely do I ever go alone unless it's a quick item on the way home from school.

But when I do, it's weird haha.

It varies. Sometimes I take the kids along when there's no one home to look after them. If my in-laws are here, I would do grocery shopping alone.

Always with DD. We grocery shop on Saturday mornings, when DH is at work, so there's really no option there :-)
And when he runs errands during the week... it's always with DD, too. The rule seems to be, if you are spending $$ you must take the kid :-)

Re: Do you Grocery Shop with your kids or on your own

I typically do my big grocery trip for the month by myself or with my youngest baby.

The produce runs are usually with all 4.

It varies. DS sometimes goes with me. DD very rarely does, as it's difficult to push a wheelchair and drag a cart! But if I just need a few things I don't stress it. I'd say 75% of the time I go alone.

Usually we all go together. Sometimes it's just me and DH and sometimes it's just me and DD, but that's not the norm.

Usually with the kids, by myself. Sometimes it's just two of them though. Other times DH comes along.
