Oh Crap! Realization of the Day ... Parking and Shopping

(This didn't actually happen today, but I am starting a tip of the day based on things I have learned over the years or tips other parents have shared with me.)

When you go to the grocery store, do not park in the spot reserved for parents with babies, but instead next to the nearest cart return stall. Usually there will be a cart in there already that you ca
n use to load up your baby. Then, after you unload the groceries and the baby in the vehicle, you are right there to return it. This is especially good advice if you have more than one child, and they are not strong walkers yet (this was something I learned very early on when shopping with the twins). If you put them back in the vehicle before you return the cart, you feel major anxiety being more than 5 feet from your vehicle. If you take them with you to return the cart, you have to carry them both back. And, definitely do NOT park in the reserved spot if you do NOT have a baby with you. Mama bears WILL attack.
