Grocery shopping with the kids: Does that statement bring visions of stress, whining and tossing random things into the cart to appease your children?
Well, it brings those thought to my mind, too. However, it does not have to be that way. In fact, now that my kids are a little older, I can get them to help me at the store and it is helping me to get them involved in the whole eating process a little better.
