So the first day of our ENTIRE week as three (me being the one out-numbered) went pretty well.
We had lunch with Tim’s grandparents and it was a lovely visit as usual. Every time I leave there I am just so happy about the relationship we all share with them. I never would have had the opportunity to even lay eyes on any one of my great-grandparents and I think it is SO extraordinary that my sons get to see and know their “G.G.s” as they grow up.
After lunch we went to Target and I only bought ONE more thing than what we needed. Yes folks, miracles do happen.
One of the things we “needed” was a gift for The B Man’s little girl pal whose birthday party is Wednesday. I thought about going while he’s at school but he’s now at the age where he can help pick out the gifts and since this is a special friend of his I really wanted him to be included in the choice.
Now let me tell you this boy can push my buttons, oh yes he can but when he is sweet HE IS SWEET!
He knows the theme of the party is Disney Princesses (he only had me read and re-read her party invitation 5 kazillion times) and when we got to that aisle in the store he was so excited to get out of the cart and pick it out. He touched tea party sets and dolls and then he found “it.” “I want this for her Mommy, I just know she will love it!!” I almost lost it right there in the middle of the pink and purple toy aisle (it doesn’t help that my little friend is back this week). And I can tell you that item was in the cart in .9 seconds. I sure hope she likes it! : )
When it was about time to head for the check out Little G created a 2319 (code in our family for a poopy diaper) and I really thought they might escort us out it stunk so bad. And of course The B Man has to proclaim to the entire store that his brother “smells so BAD!!” That was a lovely moment. And this was right after The B Man also asked me why he can’t ever buy the girl flip flops. I gotta tell you, I didn’t have a good answer. Because you know they have 57 styles of girl ones to the 2 boy ones. I can understand why I he might think it’s not so fair…
The day ended with an early meal for us all, 2 boys all bathed and then tucked in tight. Only 4 more to go…
**UPDATE- Go here for explanation of where “2319” came from, if you don’t already know**
