For retailers and shoppers alike, Black Friday is serious business. Last year, more than 140 million shoppers hit the stores the day after Thanksgiving, with some 50 million already pushing shopping carts by 6 a.m., according to the National Retail Federation.
We all "know" leaving the kids at home is the best option but unfortunately, often times it just isn't the reality ... What if you can't afford a sitter this year, you're a single mom or the hubby wants to sleep in and watch the game (like most of us!)?
So, if you have to tote the tot you may as well make it as enjoyable as possible, which is why you should check out these two items:
