so we were in walmart the other day...it's pertinent to know that there are two walmarts within striking distance here and one is a little...unsavory...audrey you know the one. it's got security guards instead of greeters and it just makes me feel a little ghetto, but they have fabric there so you can see why i might choose to go to that one instead of the newer, nicer one. right. so that's one part of my awesome trip to the store that we* had. (* we includes me and the three children)
then, we were shopping and i heard blake's binky fall. (this is maybe halfway through the trip) and i thought to myself.."self, remember to pick that up please." amidst the children asking for things and blake fussing...just a little, i forgot to pick it up. subsequently when i realized this, in the middle of the fabric looking (i was looking for something specific not just browsing, in my defense...but i digress), i went back to where i thought it had fallen, but to no avail. and to make matters worse, we lost the other binky the DAY BEFORE at the riparian preserve. (sidenote...why the heck is she having so many sidenotes today??? i H.A.T.E. losing things. can't stand it!)
so that's two binkies gone in two days by the little man....good thing we were at a store, yes? so i go to the aisle and pick out new binkies. but is he ready to move up to the 6 month + size or do we stay with the mini mam..decisions decisions. then someone comments on avery..how small she is, how well she talks, she's so cute...on and on...PICK A BINKY AND GET OUT OF THERE WOMAN! ok...then we are a little farther down our list and blake is fussing fussing and i so what do i do? that's right! take a binky out and (after i put it in my mouth to get off the package germs but give him my own germs) pop it in his mouth! in the store. we have not yet paid, but the baby falls asleep very quickly and for this, we are grateful. Then we have to get new toothbrushes, ethan picks out spiderman. we get in line (ps at this walmart they have only 4 lines open IN THE WHOLE STORE at almost 7 at night on a weeknight...lame) and discover that somewhere in "toys" we lost the spiderman toothbrush...so we...you guessed it...get out of line, get another toothbrush and get back in line. he really did need a new one, it wasn't just giving in! and then of course i pick the wrong line, always! so slow. by the time we get all the groceries and get them paid for and get home it is 7:30 pm and i believe i started that adventure around 5 ish. kendall didn't come with us to the store because he was working late and we thought of having him meet us but i said, oh for sure we will be home soon! wishful thinking. but he did make dinner! kudos to him! whew! adventures in shopping.
