We were all three too tired to cause any drama while grocery shopping. (Check out my make shift shopping cart!) We did practice colors and learn what chickens look like when they are cooked whole! I ALWAYS time out our adventures in grocery shopping so that we eat lunch from Prepared Foods first then we shop. I usually end up with full, happy, sleepy kids that way. A kink in the plan has recently presented itself though. Now that Ruby is potty trained AND I have another baby (aka another diaper to change), our post lunch/pre shopping visit to the restroom takes me no less than 20minutes . . . and that is moving at the speed of light! It takes a real resolve to go ahead with shopping after that (especially after the morning we had)! I probably could have slept on the floor in the frozen aisle . . . that is how wiped I feel! From the second we left that bathroom Ruby began asking for "cheese, Mommy, cheese!" Thank goodness here 'dealer' was working today! Check out that frickin bowl of cheese. . .and with a SPOON!!! All I can say is "WOW! Thanks Annie Laurie!" The only problem with that cheese is it turned to soup in her mouth, and for a 2 year old that has yet to master not talking with a mouth full it was pretty messy! No worries, it kept her SO happy for the rest of our culinary journey and gave me something yummy for a little afternoon snack! Rounding off the "tour of tired", we stopped by
my mom's office for Ruby to "do emails" (at least that's what she said). Mom (aka Honey) likes to parade Ruby and Elvis around her office every once in a while! I guess that is part of the joy of having grandchildren, to have everyone drool over them and tell you how beautiful they are then, instead of having to take care of them, you can just give them right back to their parents. Cool for Grandmas!
Other things of note from today:
1. Elvis slept from bedtime to 5.30 am then right back to sleep after nursing. . .he woke up for reals at 8.30!!!! Awesome!
2. My right one is in pain and leaking . . . I hate to complain about a longer than usual nap, but OUCH!
3. Tonight is MOVIE NIGHT & we have Monsters Inc. to watch!
4. Our house is a WRECK, I've been avoiding cleaning and laundry for days!
5. Oh, Ruby DID watch Lilo and Stitch after her nap yesterday. . .I KNEW she would ask for it!
