Maddie was hilarious! When we first walked in, I offered a choice to ride in the cart or walk with Mommy. Obvious choice, right? So, we picked up a basket. She wanted to help so she held one side and I took the other and off we went.
Our first aisle was the Easter aisle! Maddie was in heaven!
She tried to run off only once and it was a good time to teach her to stay with Mommy. The other issue was touching every single thing on the shelves and wanting to pick them up. BREAKABLES! YIKES! I learned this trick from a friend of mine...I told her she could use one finger and touch them (gently). It worked. She proceeded to use her little pointer finger and touch, touch, touch everything up and down the aisle. It even sounded like she was trying to say, "touch". And sometimes it sounded like she was trying to say, "finger." I kept repeating, "one finger, one finger!"
All in all it was a good practice shopping trip. I'm going to have to figure out what I can do with these little cuties.
