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

I drop the big kids off at school right before 8 and take my little shopping with me until his preschool starts at 9. Having to do it between helps me be more efficient and it gives DS2 and I a little time together.

During the summers I take all the kids.

You are very brave to go then. I've been on a Sunday evening by myself and felt like the store was a madhouse in comparison to 8 on a Monday morning.

I usually try to go during the week, so ds comes with me. I only have ds & he is still good at the stores. It works for now.

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

I go shopping with our child or my DH goes shopping with our child (depending on my medical situation at the time). I ALWAYS make sure DS goes with us to the farm/drop point to get our items that we get from them. For my son (not always for us, though now more so) it is very important to know where things come from. He proudly says what food comes from the farmer when asked. He also knows what a napa cabbage is (he is 4, I know adults that don't know what a napa cabbage is!). I think this will become even more important as he gets older. So yes, this next baby will go to the grocery store every time too.

DH I could leave at home. When we go shopping as a family, the budget goes up. This is because of DH not DS.

I try to go alone or with just DH and the baby. Sometimes we have to bring one or both of the toddlers with us. It makes it much harder.

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

Last week I had all 3 kids. Last night it was me alone. Next week it could be just SO. Whatever works at the time.

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

We used to go as a family, but since DH has been working 60 hours a week and going to school there just usually isn't time for that anymore. So I go while my oldest is at preschool and I have my 2 youngest plus the little boy I babysit.

Some days are hard, but for the most part they are so used to going that they are really well behaved in the store.

I voted alone because 90% of my big trips are alone. But I take DD sometimes when I feel like she needs a change of scenery or DH needs a little break.

Little trips, she's always with me.

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

We typically have our groceries delivered, and almost all of our produce we have delivered, so besides an occassional Costco trip about once a month, I just run to the local shops and do small shopping there. Sometimes I take DS sometimes I go while he is in school, it just depends on what we need and the time we have.
