Some proof that as a mom, I ROCK

Today I went grocery shopping. With both kids. By myself.

Now before you go off shaking your head, wondering why I will tell you. S had to return to work today and my mom is scheduled to be here in about 4 hours. And we had no food in our house, unless Poptarts and Starbursts count as major food groups suddenly.

So, into the Snugglie went Emmie and into the cart went Lexie and off my rocker went me. Actually, it wasn't so bad. Emmie is in the lump stage of babyhood, so no worries there. And Lexie loves sitting in the shopping cart growling at people who look at her (S taught her that trick, so cute). The only trouble I had was when I dropped my debit card and it slid under the register. Agh! Fortunately, Grandma Moses happened along and somehow got her osteoporosis-self down to the floor to retrieve it for me. I kept waiting to hear bones crumble (I'd say crack, but I think she was well past that age). Thank God for nice elderly people.

So, our house has food and my mom won't think all I eat is Poptarts and Starbursts and everyone lived happily ever after!


edited to add: yes, I've changes my blog look again. I get bored with the same old, same old. If you think that's bad, you should see my house. I rearrange furniture at least twice a month.

You are too funny. So how far apart are Lexi and Emmie? I would like to hear how you like having them close in age. I have a four month old and we are already contemplating on when to start trying for a second.

Glad your trip went well! I know many mothers that cannot do that alone!

That reminds me of when Owen, my 2 year old was born. My DH went to work to check in and when he got back we were gone -- I took both of the kids to Target by myself! In retrospect, 2 is simple, since I now have 3 and it's hard!

Hang in there, it gets easier!

You are an amazing mom for taking two babies out to the store. I don't think I would be so brave.

sounds like you are doing remarkably well -- how is the little one sleeping?

It all boils down to finding a way to do what has to be done when you're a mom...that's what I've learned at least. I think some moms that think they can't do something would be amazed at their true abilities.

WOW! I am so v impressed by you!I, too, have a 14 month old and am due with Baby #2 in December. I figured I would be homebound until Spring...not daring to go out with 2! ;) I would really love to hear about how Lexie and Emmie get alone in the future and what works/doesn't work...
