When you are a young mother everything is a challenge for you. The easiest thing of your daily routine becomes an impossible task.
An shopping is a whole different level of “impossible”.
But let’s face it: as our children grow, we become more experienced and long-headed.
Here are just a few tips, that will turn shopping from hell to heaven (зачеркнуть) something less severe.
Here is how it works.
Always use a shopping cart.
Why? Because it’s fun! And for kids everything that includes fun, means being busy. And for you it means free hands.
If you have a dog, take it with you.
Why? Same reason. It’s simply one more thing that can distract your baby. Of course this means that you’ll have to choose a place that allows pets.
Snacks. Special crunchy bites in a snack trap. A snack trap is one more entertainment, that will give you more time.
Let them help you. Kids are naturally curious. So it would be better if you fulfill this curiosity by involving your child in the process of making a decision.
Make sure you have some water.
Kids easily get dehydrated. Especially in air conditioned space.
Stick to the plan.
Make a plan 🙂 make a shopping list. And stick to it. Share with your children.
