Portlander Problems #10

1. I'm pretty sure people will assume I am a bad mom when I don't "wear my baby" at the grocery store.
2. I had to decide between organic strawberries grown in Mexico or local strawberries of the non-organic variety on Sunday.  I kept walking between the sections trying to figure out what I should do.
3. Buying local is important to us Portlanders, but finding a local retailer to buy everyday basics like socks and underwear is a struggle. (Submitted by Posy)
Do any Portlanders have suggestions for undies retailers?  Of course we would prefer the underwear be made by locals as well :)

If you live in the Portland area and want to share some of your own, I would love if you would submit your Portlander Problems to me. 
I will post yours one of these coming weeks.  E-mail me at kiralynnpdx@gmail.com.


  1. Hahaha. This one makes me think of the episode of Portlandia where they go to check out if their chicken is being raised well and end up in some weird hippy polygamous cult/commune. Have you seen the show? How do you feel about it?

  2. This could also be called "San Francisco Problems." One perfect example - I was actually scolded by a mom when I was on a photo shoot because I suggested that her baby might need a nap. The poor little thing was crying, yawning, rubbing her eyes - all clear signs that she's tired. But the mom insisted she was just crying because she needed "reassurances" from me. I'm still not quite sure what that means.

  3. 1. and 2. are also my problems. And 3. is quite problematic, too. :)

  4. always go for the local strawberries over the organic mexico ones. There are a lot of restrictions to get classified as Organic. Often times they are but just can't be labeled that way. Oregon strawberries really are the best anyway.....

  5. You gave me pause at #2, as I imagined you walking back and forth, not knowing what to do! I had so much empathy in that moment... and then I died laughing. =)

  6. Lol, so true and so funny. Now at least I know I am not the only one wandering indecisively amidst the produce.


I love to hear from you, and will do my best to respond to your comment! Please no spam :)
