My son is at the age where he will not sit still, he constantly wants to be on the move! He really hates riding in the cart at the grocery store. If I bring him with me, I usually have my husband with me and one of us will keep our son entertained while the other shops. Today I tried to do a little Christmas shopping at the store with my son. He would not have it! We left the store without a single thing. Next time, he is staying at home with my husband while I shop, or we will get a babysitter. Do you take your kids shopping with you? Does it effect the way you shop, or how much money you spend?
