Food shopping is stressful enough in itself, but food shopping with kids makes things even harder. Trying to get everything done with a screaming child is definitely not ideal.

Recently, mom Patricia Larkin was shopping in Aldi when a woman stopped her.

Larkin was carrying her baby in a baby carrier, so the mom made a comment to her about it.

Most people comment on adorable children in public, so Larkin didn't think it was too strange.
