Great expectations

While a baby carriage makes for a good visual, it's a bit ironic. Once the baby is born there are no special parking spots, at least at the supermarket where I took this photo.

Perhaps the expectant mother is expected to buy a carriage at the supermarket, so she'll be ready when the baby arrives?

Are those parking spots located close to the entrance? Might be a way to make sure they don't have to walk farther than necessary.

Yes, they are located close to the entrance, which I think is great. It's just that people with infants and small kids aren't extended the same courtesy.

Gelisam: Excellent point!

That expectant mom looks like she has a tummy though. Maybe it is her second? (Poor mom with a tiny one in the stroller and one ready to come out!) ;-)

We have these around where I live and I never used them because I wanted to walk. I carried high and hoped all the walking would make the baby drop. However, I have a few friends who were horribly uncomfortable during that last month and carried very low. I think it is a nice gesture.

But right now I am with you - hauling two kids across busy parking lots. Hate it.

Hey,

I'm excited to let you know that the supermarket near me (Shaw's/Star Market) in Boston does in fact have light blue signs for parking spots for not only expecting mothers, but for families with small children as well.

Not all hope is lost.

I'll try to snap a picture later today.

That's great news! Maybe there is such a thing as progress after all ...
