Oh, and if I send DH to the store, he will call me 3-4 times with crazy questions!

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

I take my three kids and my 11 week old nephew one morning a week. We've been doing it since they were born, they know how to behave, and its no big deal (to me). I refuse to step foot in a grocery store on the weekends, as its way too busy.

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

We go as a family for most larger trips. I don't drive and DH has no memory for large lists, so we go as a group. I'll sometimes go to the smaller grocery store with just DD2, but I find it more expensive, so I don't usually unless I'm there for something else - it's attached to the mall where we have our playgroup thursday mornings. I might also send DH out by himself for one or two things, or have him pick something up on his way home from work.

I do small trips with the kids when it is nice out and we can walk there or when I really need something right away. Otherwise I try to go alone.

I coupon and if it's during a big coupon event and warm enough, DH takes both girls to the park (it's RIGHT next to our grocery store). If it's normal trip or not warm enough, I take YDD and he watches ODD and they walk around the store together.

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

DH will pick a couple things up sometimes on the way home from work, but 99.9999% of big trips are just me and the kids (3, 2, 7.5 months).

I shop with all three kids about 95% of the time. If DH is off, he will go with me, but for the most part, I have to take the kids by myself.
