When poppy went to work, I got a wild hair to just go ahead and get my shopping done (Costco and grocery store). With both kids. Alone. On a Saturday morning. I will say this: I am definitely addicted to caffeine. I was SO crabby this morning. I had not had coffee. I thought I didn't need it. Somehow not sleeping in a month plus drinking coffee not only means I'm staying alive but it also means I'm addicted. Bah. That's going to be fun to break once I'm sleeping again. Anyway! This is all interrelated. When I decided to go to Costco with both kids alone, I had not had my coffee. And I'm now addicted to caffeine (meaning I totally get the saying now "I haven't had my coffee yet.") So this meant for me today my judgement was completely impaired. IE: I made a judgement call that bordered insanity. Note to self: drink coffee before making decisions in the future. At least until I'm sleeping and no longer a caffeine addict.
The short story: Costco with two kids by yourself on a Saturday is CRAZY. Seriously CUH-RAZY. I literally got to my car and was sweating. It was a bona fide workout.
Sidenote: what the *!#% is up with people at Costco, specifically men? I swear there was this one dude today who was blocking the isle waiting for a sample for like five minutes. Finally moved and did the same thing just down the isle. I mean really. You don't notice that I have a massive cart plus two kids and just want to get by? But by all means, get your meatball because clearly all we should be doing here is EATING SAMPLES. What.the.hell. I was very glad I had my coffee at this point or I might have gone all crazy mom on him... Instead I was polite. While mouthing a "oh my god you've got to be kidding me" to a mom next to me. Vent over.
After the grocery store and simultaneous kiddo meltdowns (good times!) B was hungry, so O got to be pilot while I nursed Bennett.
We then drove home, unloaded, and I got a little cuddle bug on my chest. Owen never cuddled so much at this age (unless I'm forgetting- entirely possible).
I did a little work while Justin rode his bike and the kids napped, then I hobbled (rode) as well while Justin made us dinner. After dinner, as per usual, was bath time. Owen at dinner ate 50% of Bennett's sweet potatoes so in the theme of regression, also wanted to use the baby bath. Shoot, whatever works (it was pretty cute).
And a few of the other fur baby boy. He's such a good dog. Owen torments him and he just takes it.
