Naptime Shopping

I've found the quickest, easiest shopping trips usually don't include my youngest child-almost 2-years-old. If at all possible I run my errands while someone else is watching him. Other times, I do my shopping during my son's naptime. I know he'll fall asleep in the car and stay asleep once in the stroller.
The only problem is if it's a big shopping trip-like Christmas shopping. How do I push a cart and a stroller?
Well, during my last holiday errand run, I put the umbrella stroller inside the shopping cart, locked the wheels and placed my darling, sleeping son in the stroller and strapped him in. I had plenty of room to place items in the cart and didn't have to fight through crowds while maneuvering a cart and stroller.
(I shopped for an hour and half and he didn't wake up until we were back in the car on the way home!)

Now that is clever! Plus your cart is already half full so I bet you buy less. I know I would.
He is getting so big!
