Rocking the groceries

The boy sent me out to the supermarket this afternoon, while he stayed home and tried multiple times to put Baby down for a nap (he failed, but not through any lack of skill on his part - he's actually way better at settling her than I am - but because Baby is having an exceptionally wide awake weekend).

Although my shopping list was pretty short, I chose to push a big trolley around instead of lugging a basket.

Every time I stopped in an aisle to look for an item, I found myself unconsciously rocking it backwards and forwards, as if to keep the bag of apples asleep.

That's quite cute, actually. I just hope you didn't take a boob out to feed a box of cereal ^_~

Merry Belated Christmas, btw

jon: no, I didn't - but only because I'm not so comfy with breastfeeding in public ;-)
Merry Christmas to you too, and no doubt you'll have a fabulous New Year.

Tee hee, nothing like well settled apples.

urban chick: I've already started talking to Baby when we're out and she starts grizzling from behind the scarf that is her makeshift sun shade. So people probably already think I'm doing that ;-)

eb: a happy apple is a tasty apple ;-)
