Taking a kids cart in the stores

So today I bought my 2 year old daughter one of those plastic play carts for only a buck! She was pushing it all around the store and was acting sooo good. I was thinking since she was acting so good that she could push her lil cart around while she shopped. I though I would just put her name on it, put it in my truck and the next time we go shopping at the store taking it out so she can push it around.... do you think that would be okay?

  • I don't see why not. A lot of the grocery stores in our area have little carts for kids to push. At least yours won't be contaminated with several million different germs and diseases. lol

  • I don't know why anyone would object to that. As long as she doesn't run wild with it. You could even put some of your groceries in it at the store. Then she's a really big girl!!

  • If you keep her right with you, yes, that's a good idea.

  • I see nothing wrong with it. I've seen a few kids doing it and thought it was the cutest thing ever.

  • Great!! Thanks guys for all the feedback! I was just making sure people wouldn't be looking at me like "WTH is that lady letting her kid do" lol And I figured if I wrote her name one it the store people wouldn't think we were trying to steal one haha

  • There are several stores around here that have little carts just for the kids, but due to germs I don't let mine use them. I think it is a cute idea, but with 2 kids I would never attempt it.
