Us mom's know that sometimes motherhood changes you - makes you crazy at times. I love this article and can sympathize totally. I can also see the store's point of view - I'm sure those carts don't come cheap and don't want them stolen. Better idea is to use your car seat in the cart - assuming their carts are like ours here in the states. While we're on carts - did you know that for every cart you see on the side of the road or anywhere other than the store it costs that company at least $400 to replace it? That's a lot of dough. When we lived in California I would see carts all over the place and see people walking them down the street. ???
