Changing of the Guard

As Ben is rapidly outgrowing his infant carrier, today I decided to promote him to the front seat of the shopping cart. On the one hand, I was literally beaming with pride to see Ben sit up in that seat, nice and tall, and stroll through the grocery store like a big boy.

On the other hand, the new seating assignment meant that Max was also promoted to being a walk-along. As you can see, Max took full advantage of this new freedom to explore the store at will, hang from the shopping cart one handed anytime he wanted a lift, and throw full-fledged tantrums in the middle of the aisle when mean Mom didn't give in to his cookie demands. Next time: a leash!

For his part, Hank was a phenomenal helper, insisting that Max hold his hand in the parking lot and keeping a good lookout for blinkie coupons:)
