Max Update: My Grocery Buddy!

Over the past month, Max has started going to the grocery store with me. He sits in the cart and seems to really enjoy helping pick out what we buy. Since he is such a veggie and fruit monster, we start in the produce section. I have him pick between green grapes and purple grapes, select between honeydew melons and cantaloupes (he usually asks for both), and he always happily reminds me that we need "CELERY". He even selects potatoes and counts with me as he puts them in the bag. When I ask him if we should buy his sister Cameron milk, he shakes his head and says "no". He labels everything we put in the cart and when he doesn't know the name of something he soaks up my words and does his best to repeat them back to me.
I look forward to my weekly trip to the store with Max. It is special Mommy-Max time, just for us. We even have inside jokes! And while being able to go to the grocery store is a small trip in the grand scheme of things, every bag of grapes, every stalk of celery is a step in the right direction.

  1. You bet it is!! It is probably the most effective "untherapy therapy" time for Max.
