After dropping Ollie at school, Minna and I headed to the suburban-esque Whole Foods in Tribeca for groceries. Though she’s been in a shopping cart once or twice before, today she wouldn’t have it. She screamed “Nooooooo!!!!” and cried and did that back-arching thing so I could barely cram her in the carriage. Then she tried to climb out and continued to scream and cry so that after three minutes I had to remove her and put her back in her baby carrier. It made for difficult shopping.
It also made me think of this photo, which is one of my all-time favorites of Ollie and my grandmother. He’s nearly one and this was his first time in the cart. He clearly enjoyed it!
