shopping w/ a busy boy

Today was supposed to be a fun shopping day, but sadly it was far from that.  

I'm a tad bit smaller than I was before pregnancy so I was excited to get some new Spring clothes with some gift cards that I have been holding onto since my birthday in September.  

Pearson is always so good when we are out and about, and he even loves to go grocery shopping with me.  Today, though, was a totally different story.  He did not want to be in the stroller and he would just cry and cry while we were in the dressing room. I felt so bad for all the other people trying on clothes.  When I would take him out of his stroller he would do everything he could to get out of my arms.  Needless to say we didn't shop very long and walked away with 3 things I'm not even sure I'm going to keep because I felt so rushed to get out of the store.  

Any tips for shopping with busy toddlers?

...leave them at home! Yep, it's true. No more casual shopping. I'm needing to go soon, so I'll need to pick an evening or Saturday to head out on my own.

I'm a new follower - just wanted to say that if you find any tips that work, do share! And I have to agree with The Roberts'... leaving them home seems to be the only tried & true way to shop successfully! :)
