Yes Ava wants to ride in the cart (she's 4); she says I walk too fast in the store. I'm typically on a mission ;-). Wil also does. However, I rarely take them both. It eats up too much cart space!! :-)
I told Ava last time she was going to have to walk. She's getting too heavy (32lbs) to lift up into the cart.
DS usually wants to walk and now that I am pregnant I can't be lifting in so I give in. Usually about half way through the store he wants in the cart or I have to put him there because he forgets to listen.
DD still rides in the cart most of the time, although she likes sitting in the basket now and I can't lift her into the front anymore anyways because she is about 38 lbs. There are times when we are just running in for a few things that she walks but she doesn't always like to listen when we are in the store so for my sanity I usually get a cart. I
Both DC mostlyy ride in the storller when we grocery shop- city living, again. DH and I usually try to make quciker trips a coupel time a week before picking them up, so thye don't go more thna once a week.
DS has ridden in the cart, but doesn't find it fascinating because he's just as happy in the stroller ( the boy is lazy). Only occasionally will he walk and its not usually for long.
DD doesn't acknowledge the cart yet. I don't know why.
They will likely fight over the cart when we decide that we don't need to take our big stroller everywhere anymore- which isn't likely to be soon because the storage under the bottom saves DH & I from having to carry too much (DS's laziness comes from both f us!)
Also, most of the time we don't get a cart at the grocery store because its too much of a hassle in our tiny grocery stores. We use the littel hand carts that have tobe carier. I hate the little rolling ones!
DD still rides in the cart pretty much all the time. I don't really give her an option not to. Only at the mall or other stores where there isn't a cart to ride in does she get to walk, and then she has to hold my hand.

DS is 3 and still rides in the cart because he'll run off if I'm not holding his hand. Frustrating sometimes when all I need to get is some milk and I have to put him in the cart because both my hands are full and I can't hold his hand.
When I have to bring DD, she sits in the front and DS sits in the basket.
