Aw, you had quite the day, didn't you? I had to laugh at the race-to-the-car-and-cry-because-he-lost...this was a daily event here. I finally put a rotating schedule on the calendar of who is first, second and third at whatever we do that day...just to stop the insanity!!

Reading your post made me feel exhausted! Why is it so hard to do every little thing?!

Since we're on the topic - I have a question. My bunch is now 21 months and 8 months. And while I finally thought I had outings down to a science, things have suddenly shifted and I am at a loss once again. My youngest is getting too heavy to comfortably Bjorn on outings (i.e. Target!) and my oldest is too young to trust in the main part of a cart. I went to Target yesterday (right before dinner time, in the rain - HUGE mistake to begin with). And i thought i would try the huge awkward multi-child cart. Well of course it turns out you can't put the baby in the regular cart seat, and he's too small for the big kid seat. So I had to put my toddler in the main part of a regular cart and it is a miracle we all left the store in one piece. So how the hell am I supposed to go to Target in this stage of bunching? I can use the stroller, but not if I need to get anything other than what will fit in the bottom basket or a shopping basket that I have to lug around while pushing the stroller. I am sure I'm not the first mom to have this problem - so what did you do?

Emily, that is a great question! Perhaps we need a whole post on carts. :-) When I HAD to do it, I put my youngest in the seat and the oldest in the back part with snacks. It was the only way to ensure he stayed put. However....for a very long time I avoided any places with carts until the older one was able to act better. Actually, I may have just avoided all stores for a while. I did the stroller for a long while and then I used to do big runs like Target with just one kid. Next post is about avoiding Target with your Bunch. ;-)

I've become quite the pro at the "cart choo choo train". I put the 23 month old in the seat and the 4 month in his car seat in the main compartment. I push that cart with one hand and pull another behind me with my other hand. Sounds tricky, but after a few tries, I've got it down pat! Good luck!
