I Like Taking The Crazy Into Public

I have always loved running around with all the kiddos. It makes the day interesting to take them all into...oh, let's say...Hobby Lobby. The fear on the employees faces when we walk by all the glass vases is worth the trip alone.

Not to mention I get to say I have groupies, remember?

So yesterday , I packed them all up to run some errands. We haven't been doing it as much lately. Its recently become a little more chaotic on our adventures out because the babes just DON'T like the stroller anymore, so I've scaled back on our errands. They are feisty little things and just can't be trusted to walk through the store...unless I want to buy something because we broke it.

Like a Snow Globe. Or two.

So we packed up in the 50 degree weather and headed out for the day.


I needed to pick up some "end of pregnancy" clothes - also known as, "anything with an elastic waist band." I keep thinking I'll get out by myself to shop, but it ain't happening. I'm to tired when Eric gets home to head out, and honestly, I just want to be home at night with my family.

The girls ran through the mall as grandma and I trailed behind. People passed and took double takes (no pun) and whispered, "I think that's 2 sets of twins." You know, the usual. I actually had a pretty successful clothes shopping experience considering I had kids crawling back and forth under my fitting room door...and asking to see my belly...and calling out the size on every tag.

I'm telling ya, there's just no privacy anymore.

And you know what else there isn't anymore of apparently? Air in the fitting rooms. I'm serious, I thought I was melting under those lights in that tiny space. Maybe I'm kinda like a furnace right now anyway, but I was literally sweating. I would've paid for one of those hand fans around the time I tried on my 3rd pair of pants.

But who needs a hand fan when you can buy an icee?

So anyway, it was good to get out and run around town with them...it's always interesting.. I'm trying to make myself get out there with all my ladies even though I feel like my energy is totally zapped. Because before we know it, it won't be just us girls cruising the aisles at Target, we'll have a sweet little guy along for the crazy ride :).

Hope you all are having a great week!

I get so hot in the changing rooms too! Ugh. They should have extra coolers in there.

I broke a candle (in a glass holder) at Walgreens once. It was so embarrassing. It was a stinky flavor too, so I was hoping I didn't have to buy it. The manager recognized me and thankfully he just let it go. What will I do when kids are helping me break stuff. :D

Love that they were calling out the sizes. Sounds like something my sister and I would have done! Your life is adventure-filled!! So very blessed.

It's not just you...changing rooms are ALWAYS hot! I don't know what it is about them, and it doesn't matter if it's a big room or a little room, it's always hot :(

And I love how they called out your sizes. My cousins (both boys) are 3 and 5 and VERY interested in my belly...and the fact that my chest is getting bigger! The 3 yr old told me the other day that "he liked my bigger boobs because they made him a good pillow!" You should've seen my uncle's face! It was definitely one of those times I wish I had had a camera on me :)

Glad you found some clothes and got out for a little bit!
