I bring the kids. They are well behaved there 99% of the time.
DS is usually at school when I go. But on weeks he is off school he comes along too.

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

I used to take the older one with me and leave the younger one with daddy. Now that DH works on Saturdays (I work full time during the week, so can't do it other days) I have to bring both. It is a whole lot harder. I may need to figure out some way of doing without them.

I take DD with me, but mostly out of necessity because DH often works nights when I can go shopping. It is getting harder though and I may start shopping on Sundays so I can go without her. She is at that grabby stage. LOL

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

I go with the 2 littles now that my older two are in school but in the summer I take all of the kids with me. I do need to add that when I take all 4 I shop at Giant Eagle because they have a child care area for 3-9 year olds, so I drop off the bigger two and take the little two shopping.

And in 3 weeks my 3rd kiddo will be three and she is so excited to be old enough for the "Eagle's Nest" She said that is where she wants to go on her birthday

Usually just with DD. I prefer to go right after dropping DS off at school because the store is empty and check out is much quicker.

It varies but typically the kids are with us. I don't drive so dh does the shopping with and unless the boys are with the IL's they are with us as well.

I take her with me. Sometimes we go when hubby is working, sometimes we go all together. Once I have more than one child, though, I will probably start going alone.

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

I voted "it varies." Usually, it's just me and the kids. If I end up shopping on the weekends or I'm not feeling all that great, DH will either go with me (with the kids) or go by himself. I was super super sick during the 1st trimester and couldn't stomach the thought of being near so much food. The man who couldn't even find the peanut butter or bring back the right produce suddenly found himself doing big trips all by himself.....and he did it correctly! I'm so proud

My preference is by myself, however, most times it's DD and I
