While shopping for basics, no parent has ever said: "I'll just get a little bit and come back later this week with the kids to get more". No, when we get everyone out, we're going to cross off that list if it's the last thing we do. It's called stocking up, and it's a parent's best friend.
Ever since my newborn arrived, trips out of the house with the kids take roughly 300x longer, and come with 3x the bathroom trips. Because three kids is a lot of kids while shopping. This is a glimpse into a normal shopping trip with my kiddos. I mean, who doesn't want to hang out in a fort made from Bounty Select-A-Size paper towels?
