How to keep a toddler happy at the grocery store

Who says grocery shopping can't be fun? Little Biscuit and I had a great time using our local Schnucks store for a big-time play date earlier this week. He brought his own toy shopping cart and since mommy didn't have much on her list, I wasn't in a hurry like I usually am. I walked along with him holding him close by his harness so he wouldn't have any run-ins with those real metal carts (right, Daddy? we need to keep our baby teeth until we're at least six years old!) I carried him into the store so we didn't have to dodge cars in the parking lot but as soon as we got inside, we were off!
He found mommy some yummy bread (apparently he knows I'm watching my weight and got the diet brand without even being told)...I ought to be paying him for this service! And he got me some rice milk, breakfast fruit and diapers (mommy carried those since they were too big for his cart).
Then, like the big helper he is, he unloaded everything when it was time to pay. After all the food was bagged he was ready to roll! Wow...if he can do this much before he's even two, I might be out of a job by his third birthday!

Oh sure - here come the whole Wool-co tooth story again. He's probably tried to tell you it was all my fault, huh? :) :) :)

I love these pics! How fun! I bet he drew a LOT of attention!!!
