So for my Birthday this year I really just wanted to go shopping. Jeremy had to take some friends to the airport at 4:30 in the morning, and when he got back we were all up and getting ready. We had breakfast at Cracker Barrel (my kids favorite place to eat), went to a couple home decor stores, then hit the mall. Usually my boys (all 3 of them) are done by the time we even walk in the first store, but this time it happened to be Gymboree, so they all sat and watched the movie quietly (yes even my husband). I probably should have just left them there while I did all my other shopping. Like the 3rd or 4th store in Kenadee had a poop-splosion. Jeremy was holding her, and we ended up having to buy them both new clothes, and after we wiped her off, we still had to give her a bath in the family bathroom sink. Yuck! Definately something you dont want to have to deal with EVER, let alone at the mall. We went to A LOT of stores, and by the time we were in the last store (all day we had promised the kids that at some point we were going to go to Toys R Us) the boys were crying about wanting to leave and go to the toy store. As I am in the dressing room Cameron and Jeremy had a pretty funny conversation.
Cam- This is not fun! I want to go!
Jer- Sorry- its Mommy's birthday and she gets to decide what we do today, and she wants to go shopping.
Cam- But Dad, she is NEVER going to stop!
Gotta love those kids. Kenadee took 4 steps while we were at Gap. She had taken 2 yesterday while her and I were at my friend Mardi's house. And when my sister was watching her while Jeremy and I went out to dinner she took like 10 all on her own. Made me so sad that I missed so many of those first ones, but Heather recorded it onto her phone, so I still got to see it.
One funny thing- every time my sister watches my kids Jeremy and I end up going to the grocery store. We went on our anniversary, a couple other times, and yesterday night for my birthday. I think it is so funny that we are out on a date night and we end up spending part of it at the grocery store. Welcome to parenthood right. When your just excited to get to the store with out kids and spend time alone together that you dont mind combining the two.
