I know a place where no planes go

taking my kids to the grocery store is a bad idea. it just is. if Nate isn't strapped into the cart he touches everything. Mags gets bored and cranky. i can't focus, i can't actually shop. i end up yelling and/or bribing and it never ends well.

then, in the checkout line Nate tells everyone about how he pooped the day before. which was actually rather humorous but we're going to have to have a conversation about it.

i do not think that Nate is ADD or any other similar disorder but I do think he is what they would call a "spirited" child. i never thought I would have kids so badly behaved but guess what?!!

oh well, at least they're cute.

we got our pictures back from the studio. not bad considering the snaps were taken in between multiple melt-downs and stubborn refusals to sit still for longer than 3 seconds. they really are adorable.

I definitely need to find a babysitter so I can do groceries solo because I can't do this on a regular basis.


  1. I wish I could carry that off like you could. Been thinking of going short again myself, depending on how things go.
    I thought you had lined Deidre up to babysit for the grocery excursions. Groceries can be hard enough without kids. :) My biggest pet peeve is that we have an incredible variety of stores to go to, but none of them has everything I want.
