So I figured since I have shared some of my shopping horrors, that it's only fair and reasonable to share our successes. Few that they are.
Having said that, I recently had a nearly perfect shopping experience. With all 3 kids. At the huge grocery store. Where you must bag your own stuff.
All 3 kids were actually IN the cart for starters. Their idea, not mine. Which is why it was so perfectly executed. We got a lot done. Some bribery was needed, but I don't mind at all when it works so well. No one cried or screamed or fell out.
At the checkout we had a helpful, cheerful cashier. Another lovely employee came over and helped me fit all my groceries into my new green bins AND helped me fit them all in the cart. Which was full of kids.
And diapers were on sale.
AND we got a free turkey. Which our spectacular cashier had brought to us so we didn't have to go find it ourselves.
It truly was the most Super shopping experience I've ever had.
