I am due to pick DD up (almost 2) shortly from nursery.

I am in desperate need to go shopping

Would it be unreasonable to go after nursery pick up? Even though supermarket is 15 min drive and it's rush hour and normally we come home an have play time before she goes to bed at 7?

Tough decision blush

I’m not getting the joke???

Yanbu. Supermarket is exciting when you’re 2. You could have tea in the cafe!

She does love the supermarket normally to be fair. We do often end up with random things in the trolly and sometimes even paid for and realised at home (thank you DD for the dried sage leaves)

I could go to Waitrose as is closer, but it's more expensive

Really? Why is this tough? Because it's out of routine?

Go if you need to. She'll enjoy the change.

Really don't get this op hmm Why wouldn't you go to the supermarket if you need shopping? How else will you get it?

I’m not sure why this would be anything other that fine?

I don’t know why you wouldn’t go if you need to?

Why are we making this decision? If you need to go, go.

Just because it's a few hours till bed time. I guess it is a bit silly.

She will be bored & tired.

Order it online tonight, to be delivered tomoz.

Falsepriest I thought MN was here for helping with small issues too

NerrSnerr Tue 06-Feb-18 16:37:54

Logically do you need to be home a few hours before bedtime? If you need shopping then just go.

umbrellatella Tue 06-Feb-18 16:38:07

Flomy - that is my worry.

I feel quite sure when my DDs were little and i needed shopping i just took them and went to the supermarket. If you need shopping then that's what you do surely? Am i missing something?

But it's a few hours to bedtime, not a few minutes...A trip to sainsburys will be fine, and as a PP said if you throw in sausages, chips and beans at the cafe she'll probably love it even more!

OakIsBetterTho Tue 06-Feb-18 16:38:53

Why wouldn't you go? Go go go OP!

Just get what you need for dinner and do proper shopping tomorrow.

umbrellatella Tue 06-Feb-18 16:39:28

I think I am being taken too seriously, it is a decision I am weighing up but it's not stressing me out or anything.

MrsJayy Tue 06-Feb-18 16:39:41

Are you asking if it is ok to take a toddler to the supermarket ? Yes if you need the shop go confused

umbrellatella Tue 06-Feb-18 16:40:25

She has had tea at nursery unfortunately! I have decided am going to Waitrose - it is closer and smaller.

falsepriest Tue 06-Feb-18 16:42:21

Great! Keep us updated! grin

starrysights Tue 06-Feb-18 16:42:32

I don't understand why you have felt the need to come to MN with this?

TwitterQueen1 Tue 06-Feb-18 16:45:13

This has to be the most pointless thread ever! I think children are allowed in supermarkets..... There are 5 hours between 2pm and 7pm so I think you have time to go. Am I missing something?
