I thought about all of you at Ikea today when we put my son's whole stroller on a cart. lol  If it's any consolation, I did set the breaks on the stroller and turn the front wheels outward. tehehehehe


ETA. 

My mom used to take me shopping when I was a kid. 4 hour trips to JC penny's while she tried on clothes. The store was always hot, dry, and completely boring. I had to behave, I had nothing to do, and I would be so tired I literally thought I might actually die from boredom and exhaustion. I don't do that to my kids. I just don't see how anyone can expect a kid to act appropriately at that age for hours on end, while walking around and having nothing to do. When I take my kids on long shopping trips, I usually rent a stroller, buy them a hot chocolate, and let them play on their computer. I get everything done that I need, and I don't have two tired whiny kids dragging behind me wishing they were never born. Works for us.

He thought it was great, and my daughter was jealous that we didn't have a cart for her. We got some looks though.

That's hilarious. I'd do that over clicking a carseat in a shopping cart. At least that won't ruin his stroller..

He looks a little big to be in a stroller.

Right? The Ikea here is only one floor. That's awesome! Back home Ikea is three floors. What a nightmare.

Is there a reason he has to be in a stroller tuned into a computer thing like that?

Is he autistic or something?

He just seems a little big for all that.
