i went to target the other day. sunroof, loud Starship (kudos to whoever can tell me what i was listening to), sour gummies. sans ninos. but i still found myself rushing. instead of leisurely walking or flipping through oddities, i kept thinking 'this isn't necessary. just get what i need and get out of here.' i don't think i'm much of a shopper, and on a day 'off' i should probably stick to a bookstore or finding someplace to eat. . or sleep.
my neighbors are building a screened-in back porch and i am so jealous.
the Eldest has started to lose her afternoon nap. today i told her she could play with her dollhouse or read books in her room, but that she needed to stay in her room for a while. . she chose to crawl in her bed & take a nap instead. what a gal!
yesterday i was on the phone and the youngest (soon to be the middle--yikes!) pooped in her diaper and then decided that wasn't enough, so she took it off, too; all while she sat in her Elmo chair. disgusting. then she was torn up when she saw me taking Elmo's fur off and washing it. well MAYBE YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE POOPED ON HIM.
today while in line at Walmart, my two sweet darling girls started a hugging game. they wouldn't stop hugging. i would push the stroller to advance in line, but i would run over Natalie's feet because she was hugging her sister. and Karis pitched a fit on the walk across the parking lot to our car because i wouldn't stop so they could hug.
i'll remind them of this little episode in. . oh, 7 years.
