Oh grocery store, I’ve been thinking, and I despise you each week.
I might even consider you my “nemesis,” so to speak.
When my twins were smaller, it felt impossible to stop by
With TWO baby carriers in a cart- WHERE would my groceries lie?
For a while I tired pushing the Quattro Duo to stroll through
With bags hanging from handles, underneath, and on top of the babies too.
Not ideal to say the least, but it kinda worked for me in the past
But last week things changed, my friends…my wildest dreams surpassed!
After parking by the basket return, placing one in the seat, one in the back
I pushed the cart to the door and about had a heart attack.
Suddenly, it was leaping and jumping with joy and in awe
I squealed and giggled and could not believe what I saw.
There in front of my eyes was a cart that appeared
One with TWO front seats- they’ve never had those here!
I quickly began moving my girls over to the new find
They grinned as they were buckled in side by side.
Hallelujah! Something that makes my shopping easier… I thought
Then reality sunk in and I was a tad bit distraught.
With twins in tow (“the ticking time bombs”), it’s a race against time.
Before they’re sleepy or hungry, and letting out a whine.
So the basket may be a blessing to me to some degree,
But grocery store, oh grocery store- you still drain ALL my energy.

*I usually try to do most of our grocery shopping on the weekends (without my girls ). What about you? How do you it?! I’ve found the grocery store to be one of my biggest challenges!
