I have been meaning to post this for awhile. The first week I was by myself with the kids, we had our first outing where a shopping cart was involved, with all 3 kids. And let's just say it will be the last. Kidding, of course. But it was NOT easy.
First of all, Luke was NOT happy that Jacob had to sit in the back with him. Usually one gets the front and the other get the back. But now that Sarah gets the front, they are going to have to share the back. And Luke is still learning what the word "share" means! ha! So I thought ok, let's see how we can make this work. So the first stop was the deli counter where I got the boys their favorite, an ICEE. And you better believe I got myself a Diet Coke to get myself through the shopping trip. :)
And if you are looking at this picture like I looked at the shopping cart that day, I'm sure you are thinking where on earth do the groceries go? Let's just say, we got creative with the space and it wasn't easy!
Thankfully Sarah slept the entire time or else it would have really been interesting.
After an hour plus in Target, Luke wanting in and out of the shopping cart, Luke wanting to be carried, Jacob having to go to the bathroom, mommy being scattered and having to back track several times to get things she forgot, checking out and the boys asking over and over if they could get some candy...whew...we finally made it out! It was quite the adventure and you can bet I will be making this kind of trip when Jacob is in school and I only have 2 kids with me instead of 3! ha!
We also had another first outing, around the block. We were taking advantage of the cooler temps one afternoon and went out for a walk! It was a lot of work but nice to be outside for a change!
