    I no longer take mine grocery shopping but mine was that I would spend waaaaay more if they were with me and that I would end up forgetting to buy things I really needed due to becoming distracted.

    I grocery shop online now, so much more pleasant for us all (and for the other shoppers! ).

    Hate shopping without my 5 helpers but I do get frustrated when a certain young man trys to hug my bum while I am pushing the trolley. He also has a tendency to dance so keeping that under control can be a little hard at times.
    My teenage girl likes to disappear when he is being difficult as it too embarrassing to be one of us which of course makes me to love on her more. Eg by hugging or singing to her. The Mean mum I am.

    Always ending up with little extras in the trolley which you realise when you get to the checkout. And that I can't concentrate properly with the kids tagging along, I always go shopping with a list of what I need and calculate what I'm spending as I go along.

    I use the twin toddler trolleys for the boys, and they fight non stop! I swear I buy a gazillion things to give them to snack on just to stop them picking on each other.

    DD is only 4 months so at the moment the most frustrating thing is everyone stopping to talk to her. She's just a baby. She isn't going to talk back and it would be so rude of me to just push the pram away from them.

    When she decides it's boring helping mummy/sitting in the trolley and decides to bolt. Or I end up with a gazillion extra things so it costs double than what I planned (actually that's with both her and hubby). So I leave them at home and go myself.
