Advice

Another tip... If you are driving home from the gym and think to yourself, "I'll just 'run in' to the store with my three hungry kids (one with an undiagnosed ear infection) in tow...all I need is milk, cream of tartar and stamps." ....and you get into the store with only two minor tantrums and then in the course of 20 minutes you: clean up two cartons of spilled blueberries , rip open a package of Oreos with your teeth, ditto a pack of Strawberry Newtons, drop everything in the middle of the cereal aisle so you can run back to the meat-locker-butchering section where the restroom is "conveniently" located, almost knock over a little old man (with a cane!) steering your gigantor-Dump-truck shaped shopping cart (which no one is sitting in, by the way...), smile politely as three people creatively suggest that "You really have your hands full..." and pay for $75 worth of Shrek shaped macaroni, PlayDoh filled Easter eggs and empty blueberry containers....don't beat yourself up for finishing off the rest of the Oreos in the car!

p.s. You forgot the stamps...

Only you can turn a day like that into something to laugh about! I've had those days and they're not pretty. I constantly am in awe of you as a mom!

All mom's have those great store experiences.. that is one of the millions of things that bond us together in getting us to the celestial kingdom. My problem is this: do I want to create worlds with more children? I don't know if that is a reward..
