Today, I am Daring

I never really brought my kids shopping with me. They were probably two years old before they ever saw the inside of a grocery store. It was always too hard to go shopping with the twins stroller, so bulky and I could never go into a fitting room with it, I was lucky if I could fit through aisles with it.
I was a pro though at the open door-hold with right foot-shimmy stroller through-easy, easy take it easy, pushing the stroller with one hand-ease door closed behind me while opening the other set of doors in front of me-and repeating. You really work up a sweat when you are done with that, I can only imagine how awesome I would be at it with a single stroller. I would win straight golds at the Mommy Olympics.

Today though I am leaving the house with my two three year old sans stroller to go to a minimum of two stores that do not have carriages. I am looking for a camisole for myself at Old Navy and then hitting DSW for some new shoes. DSW is like a racetrack for kids with those long aisles.

Sigh, I have to do it though my little sister's communion is tomorrow and I have to finish an outfit and look somewhat decent.

There may be some crying and yelling but after I get it all out of my system it should be fine.


  1. Old Navy has carts! That is what I do when I don't have the stroller :) Good Luck!

    Oh my, I don't envy you one bit! Hope your shopping day went as well as could be expected and you at least came home with what you needed... :-)

  3. ooohhh, scary! How did it go???
    I have to take reinforcements shopping with me when I go shopping with my ONE son. Who usually sits in the stroller.

  4. Oh where do you find the energy for such an adventure. I only have one 3 year old and a 7 month pg belly and I couldnt imagine doing that. Good luck and never underestimate a good bribe with a 3 year old. :)

  5. You are one brave woman! I hope all went well.

  6. How did it go? Did you find something cute??
