She told a lady who was saying hi to her that she didn't like her 🙈 I was mortified!

Lying down in the middle of the aisle, starfished, screaming and shouting. Refusing to move or be quiet. Judgey looks from all around. Felt like saying ‘go ahead, be my guest, you find the off-switch seeing as you think I’m a crap mum’. I refrained grin

Any time I take all three.. eldest has just turned six. Youngest is 2 with a four year old in between,

I shop at Lidl so usually only four aisles. I can hold it together for the first two., aisle one I'm Mary bloody Poppins. By aisle two I'm Nanny McPhee. Aisle three I'm Voldemort with my whispering threatening voice and my aisle four (I'm so glad that's where they keep the wine) I am entirely soul destroyed.

Although it was harder two years ago.. so there is gradual improvement

My niece... Auntie Cheese, why does that man have one leg?

“Mummy, look, that man has a really big nose!” And when the poor man turned to look at us “what a silly old chap”. Mortified isn’t the word...

My toddler has now decided he doesn't like sitting in the trolley and that supermarket aisles are the perfect place for playing chase, I have to abandon the trolley and try to grab him. Slightly ashamed to say I usually go in armed with a big bag of chocolate buttons to bribe him with!

My DS would insist on sitting in the trolley seat (for the best really as he was a bolter) but had a huge tantrum if DH attempted to push the trolley or even touched it. It HAD to be me. Problem being I'm short and weak.

It was embarrassing because there I'd be huffing and puffing trying to control the full bastard trolley with dodgy wheels whilst hoping I don't crash into anyone (I did once), as DH built like a rugby player strolled calmly beside me.

Not in the supermarket, but at haven, dc3 said loudly look at that lady’s tummy, she must have a big baby in there mummy! Sshh dc3, no she hasn’t. But she must have mummy, her tummy is bigger than daddy pig’s.

Not mine, but friends small child was shouting and screaming for cockporn.

Once my toddler was having a strop and was refusing to get off the floor. So I proceeded to walk ahead...she then followed me and started hugging my legs trying to be cute . She then started to put herself on the floor again and in the process pulled my trousers down as she went to the floor.....never have I picked her up so quick and just tied her into the trolley 🤣

lol at these

When my son was two, he went through a stage when he called any woman "Lady." No idea where he got it from. Anyway, we were going down an aisle , he was in the trolley, and a woman was stood still looking at something in front of us. No problem, I can wait, but he bellowed "MOVE IT, LADY!"

I wanted to fall through the floor.

Dd1 (then aged approx 18months) took a running tumble whilst clutching a huge multipack of walkers which exploded beneath her like confetti. I’m ashamed to say that I abandoned my trolley, scooped her up and ran!

Everyday was an embarrassment for about a year - it's only slightly getting better now. I just avoided supermarkets, restaurants, churches. Anywhere with civilians. I'm already dreading DS2 coming of age. Can you tell I'm traumatised?

After putting three chocolate-based items into the trolley already, I refused to allow ds3 to put chocolate chip cookies in as well. He screeched "Please can I have cookies!" for the rest of the time in the loudest most high pitched voice humanly possible. Then when we got outside he was so sorry and said he wouldn't be a 'scrace again and then told me in the car it wasn't the end of the world. I didn't bring him shopping again for months.

Puddle of pee in the middle of aisle three.

Hydrogenbeatsoxygen Thu 17-Oct-19 00:59:19

My eldest vomited as I waited at the checkout. There was vomit everywhere!

JWrecks Thu 17-Oct-19 01:33:19

Loading purchases into the boot, toddler already strapped into back seat. Perfectly lovely looking gentleman parks next to us. Back window slowly goes down, toddler makes the angriest face possible, leans forward, looks this poor man right in the eyes, and very slowly and deliberately growls...

you. mother. fucker.

...then winds the window back up and reclines as though that were a job well done.

@JWrecks I just spat my tea everywhere reading that! 😅😂

hopityhopity Thu 17-Oct-19 04:33:34

Asking me why an old man hasn't got any hair in the middle of his head.

Or seeing some beers and calling them daddy drinks! 😳😳 I was so embarrassed thinking everyone must think he's a drunk. He has energy drinks/coke etc sometimes and we say they're just for daddies. So anything with a can is a daddy drink, mortifying.

My young son went through a phase of shouting out "Daddy!" to random men in the supermarket .
