It was just a great day! Gavin got to go out alone with Grammy shopping & over to Aunt Summer's house!! What a" big boy"moment for Grammy! I just also want to mention with my aging,declining muscle to fat ratio & the addition of carrying babies in VERY heavy carseats,this is no small feat!! I mapped it all out-I would park near the cart return so it would be easy to transfer said baby in car seat to the cart.Wonders of wonders,this actually worked out for me!!! This is NOT NORMAL for me!!!!!
Gavin,I'm happy to say was an angel of a baby & a very good shopper! We picked out new,"big boy" jammies for him & Zane! What fun!! My Mom-in-law & my parents, would sometimes take out our kids for shopping when they were little-fun,fun,fun for little one's & gave tired Mom a break.Ashley said it was VERY quiet without us!!
Ariana was lying down for her nap when we arrived.Well,not exactly.She was sort of protesting against naptime....Grammy's get special privileges......Ariana got to be held,cuddled & put down to play with her special visitors.
Naptime came later.Summer & Ashley seem to be the one's who most NEED naps.They are happy & willing to have a little or a long time of shuteye.Three busy,busy little ones seem to recharge on a slow blink!! Have naps somehow gone out of fashion & no one informs the parents??? Or is it just like technology, everything being done faster & faster?!!! Five people got at least a bit of a nap!!!
Summy had soup & warm bread for lunch & treated us to pizza for supper-Sum-you're my hero!!! My,it's nice to be fed!! My turn to cook tomorrow will seem more fun for having the break!! Thanks, Sum!!!
