I loaded the girls in the stroller, and we headed in. I wondered if Ben would go for a cart, but fortunately he accepted that he would be walking. At first he tried to hold my hand. I always want to hold his hand, but it is hard to push the stroller at the same time. Fortunately, Ben found that he could hold on to the stroller side and easily walk along with me. He ‘helps’ me push the girls and stays nearby. Win!
We only had a short trip. The nice thing about the stroller is that there is storage space underneath, so I can load up on a few items. The sad thing about the stroller is that storage space isn’t that big. We can’t get a lot of stuff, but we can get a few things.
Ben was awesome! We talked about how it was important to stay right with Mommy the whole time, and I really played up the helper part. (He adores being a helper.) We did pause so he could say hi to a couple of toys, but so far he hasn’t entered the ask for stuff phase. We were incredibly slow. I mean, I was pushing the boat of a stroller, and walking at toddler pace. But it was a weekday morning, and the store wasn’t crowded. Honestly, with just me and all three kids like this, I don’t feel bad if people have to go around us. I feel if all three are reasonably quiet and Ben is staying near me I am fulfilling any obligation I have to the society around me.

We slowly made our way through the store, and had fun too! The one thing I can’t do well on my own is get Ben’s diapers. The boxes are too big to fit in the stroller, and it is just too hard to carry a box, push a stroller, and keep Ben nearby. No big deal though. Pat can easily pick those up when needed. Or it could be a perfect reason to add a family Target trip on the weekend… 😉
Target level: Unlocked. I am pumped.
