How can I take three children to the store by myself? I have never done this but my husband says he won't go anymore.

Wear the baby & put the 2 year old in the seat on the cart. 5 year old can walk.

Make a list, shop back to front. Have the 5 year old help get things off the shelf. Make it fun!

Yeah you could wear the baby.

Do you have those kids carts at your grocery store? They're usually shaped like a car and theres a tv inside. Sometimes there are carts that are extra long and have a bench or a spot for a car seat.

5 year old can walk.  Either wear the baby, or check to see if your store has those nifty "double seaters" for the other babies.

Or leave some or all the kids with him.

This is a great idea. Also I don't know what you have available in your area but in mine, the walmarts have carts with an infant seat and a toddler seat side by side as well our other stores have carts with two seats up front.

Even still, before I had a car I walked with ds in the stroller and pulling a cart behind me. Then I had to pack the stroller with the goods.


Quoting RADmomma:

Wear the baby & put the 2 year old in the seat on the cart. 5 year old can walk.

Is he just an asshole or is there a specific reason why? Oh, I see... He's just an asshole.

Put the baby in the cart seat (provided the baby can sit by his or her self ok) and the other two can walk. Its possible. I used to bring two that could walk, one in the seat, and the carseat across in the cart and make my groceries fit. I may have had to go back twice for a shopping trip but its definitely possible. Not easy in some cases but possible.

Why can't the five year old walk? When my oldest three were that age I took the all the time.

He wants me to go when he is working, I am a stay at home mom. I have a car but won't go anywhere ever because it is to hard by myself.
