A Simple Rant

To the parent who let his or her kids ride in the VERY LAST two-seated, red car shopping cart while eating white cheddary-looking cheesy puffs and large slices of cheddar cheese (perfect for those of us with kids who can't eat gluten or dairy): Today I do not like you. It is hard enough to take two children shopping at the world's tiniest-aisled Safeway, and even more difficult when you discover that the only red car shopping carts available to you that aren't covered in cheesy puffs, their sat upon crumbs, and giant pieces of cheddar cheese are the single-seated red cars that will only fit one of your children. You can imagine the fun that transpired when trying to explain the problem and trying to decide just who would get to sit in the one-seated red car. For the record, Brooks made the bigger stink, thus getting the coveted seat (funny how that works) and Miles ended up inside of the shopping cart because walking alongside me just isn't an option.

So that is my rant for the day. Simple really. If your kid eats a bunch of crap in the red car shopping carts, please be kind and clean it up so that the next person is able to do her shopping in relative peace.

This has been a public service announcement brought to you by frazzled Mommy. Thanks for reading.

it wasnt me, i swear.
1. my kids don't eat that crap
2. i never shop at safeway, partly because it is overcrowded and they have small-ass aisles
3. charlie would never go in those stupid cars, so i would end up pushing the huge thing around while carrying him in my arms
4. i rarely take charlie to the store....
sorry you had to deal with it, at least miles didnt help himself to any of the snack, that would have sucked, right?
ahhh to be a mother....
