kids in cars & grocery carts

So ... you just finished shopping and you've just loaded your car.

Since it's a crime against humanity to leave your kids unattended in the car, do you make them walk with you while you put the grocery cart away? Or perhaps you're one of those lovely people who leave the damn carts in the middle of the parking space? Or maybe you're just a horrible mother who plops the kids in the car while you walk three spaces away and put the cart up?

Which one are you?

I dont have a license so I dont drive which means I am never in the car alone. Whoever I am with stays in the car with my kids while I put the cart where it belongs or vice versa. But Im not going to lie, I am one of those people that just feels too lazy at times to walk and put the cart away where it belongs all the time.

Either they walk with me or I leave them in the car and I put it away. Depends on how far away I'm parked. I never leave it in the lot to hit other cars.

Now that they are both in school, I usually go without.

Since dd always rides in the cart, I put everything in the car then bring her in the cart to the cart thing and let her walk back with me. Usually I try and park next to one of the cart things. I don't mind walking a bit.

I am whatever the hell I feel like being that day.


Most times, though, DF and I go together along with at least one kid. One of us puts the carriage away while the other stays with the car *shrug.*

Whenever life gets tough I just remember this..

I leave them in the car while I was 20 feet or less to the corral.

 Depends on my mood, and how many of the kids are with me. I either leave them in the car or take them with me to return it.
