- Going to Walmart
- Going to Target
- Going to Home Depot
- Going to Big Five
- Going to Dollar Tree
- Going to IKEA
- Going to Sonic (but only as Maggie is falling asleep in the back seat so that I don't have to share my drink with her.)
- Going to Smith's
- Going to Albertson's
- Going to my Mother's house at lunchtime but not because I knew Mom and Dad would take me to Saigon Cafe... that was just a bonus.
- Finding excuses to drop things off at Beth and Joel's house. (Oops I returned your movie without the DVD? I'll have to bring that later...)
From my list you can see that there have been quite a number of store visits. This has got to stop. Especially since I have run out of both gift cards and allowance. What things do you do when it's too hot to take your toddler to the park and you're too fat and tired to chase her? I'm in need of some good ideas here. I feel like my mothering skills need an overhaul before I triple the number of children in my brood.
[Sleep update: "Sleep Learning" as it is called in my book is going well. First night was rough, second night she didn't climb out--just cried for an hour, third night she was out in 4 minutes. Sweet.]
