It is now 2:39 pm
and I JUST got the groceries ( almost) all put away.
The long drive to and from the stores, the potty breaks (someone likes to wait until about 10 minutes after we've left a bathroom when we are in the farthest reaches of the warehouse store before she needs to "go weally bad"), diaper changes, lunch break, and the fact that we hadn't done what is usually our weekly Sam's/Walmart run in about 3 weeks made for a VERY long morning. Add a few kids who can't keep their hands to themselves (one of whom is suffering with allergies and CAN'T stop coughing), a toddler who just doesn't want to sit in the cart that long, and a very unhappy teething baby and you get a very tired (and maybe crabby) mommy. Then there's the fact that I didn't think about the lack of space we'd have for all our groceries considering how long it had been since we shopped. We stock up- on cereal, diapers, cereal, wipes, and more cereal. So it was quite a job fitting everything in old Blue. Thankfully Peter was willing to sit in the tight spot between two carseats in the way back so I could use his seat for cereal and other important stuff. And since this story is way more fun with pictures:
it's a good thing I didn't have a front seat passenger
time to go home!!
It could have been worse. Nobody puked. Nobody pooped their pants. Nobody got their fingers slammed in any doors. And Pete is going to be so happy when he comes home to fully stocked m&m jars and a big ole bottle of rum. What can I say- it's fall and we like a little rum with our cider. Too bad I forgot to buy the cider ;)
