Shopping cart accident piog

Just a little warning about shopping carts and kids.

Today while we were at Salvation Army  I was done looking around and went to check out. My youngest was sitting in the front of the cart in the seat. My older two were standing next to the car holding on to it while I was finishing paying the cart was right next to me. My older two(7&5) must have been leaning on  the cart or something because suddenly the cart tips over sideways.  I quickly reached out and grabbed the cart as it hit my sons leg and my daughter grabbed the front by my youngest. My youngest was only about 6 inches away from smacking her head on the concrete floor. Thankfully though the cart was caught in time and no one was hurt other than a small bump to my sons leg.

I just though I would share my scary experiance. I have always let the older two take turns riding on the front of the cart, but will never do it again.

That is exactly my fear. I never let my son hang on the cart...I don't care that he sees other kids doing it....it's dangerous.

I'm glad nobody got hurt:)

 Wow that's scary how old is your youngest? I won't let them ride on the end of the cart either my step brother almost flipped a cart when he was younger (no one else was in it though) so I know now not to let my kids do that. Glad no one was hurt badly.
