There are a lot of tasks that are made exponentially more difficult with kids in tow: going to a doctor's appointment, taking a shower, and of course grocery shopping. So when Kristen Bell, one of our favorite celebrity moms, posted a desperate-times-call-for-desperate-measures picture on her Instagram, we were all like "Same, girl. Same."

Bell, who is mom to daughters Lincoln, 4, and Delta, 3, knows that grocery shopping with kids often means keeping your them occupied, even if that means allowing them to get creative with a few stickers. "I am currently walking through a grocery store being assaulted by a toddler with stickers and not a single person is calling the police," she captioned the photo on her Instagram story. As any mom knows, often the snacks and toys you brought along to keep your kids happy in the shopping cart won't keep them tantrum-free past the produce. So if placing stickers all over their mother makes them happy and you can get through your shopping list--so be it.

Bell continues to be one of our favorite mammas because she keep parenting real on her social media by posting selfies that are often free of makeup and hilarious. She is also quick to remind moms to cut themselves some slack when their kids are not behaving. But it seems to be something as simple as letting your kids cover you in stickers so that you can grab groceries for the week without your toddler throwing a tantrum so relatable.

So for the days you have to take your kids grocery shopping with you, don't forget the stickers or better yet, just find a grocery store that has curbside pickup.
