Yesterday, after meeting up with the in-laws for some Noodles we decided to stop at Target. I mean, can stopping at Target ever be wrong? Apparently it can.
I usually like to linger in Target. Check out all the cuteness, cruise the endcaps looking for clearanced
necessities stuff. The kids wanted to look at toys and I needed breast pads. That is after all, why we stopped. Nothing but fun stuff for new, nursing moms. Well the rest of you are shopping Target for adorable accessories and outfits, I’m squeezing into yoga pants and picking up breast pads.
From the other end of Target I hear my children. I try to brush it off. Ross has this.
brush it off.
brush it off.
Maybe I should head over to toys and see what all the crying is about.
Hudson is crying because he is 7 weeks old and that is what babies do. Hungry, maybe? Poopy, maybe? Overtired, could be? All I know is whatever it is, it isn’t going to be handled in the toy section of Target.
Eleanor is having a royal meltdown because some idiot left a skateboard out in the middle of the aisle. Ever since Yo Gabba Gabba Ride episode Eleanor is obsessed with skateboards. She stands on a block at home and pretends it is a skateboard every.single.day. She even has a song she sings. This
block skateboard entertains her for a solid 30 minutes. Imagine her joy when a real skateboard lay before her. One with wheels and rolling goodness. Now imagine her devastation when daddy wont let her stand on it without holding his hand. Didn’t you know? Toddlers don’t need help–EVER!
Then mom comes and she has the same rule.
game over. she has lost it.
So I scoop her up and she cries and yells, “skateboard! By myself” from the very back of Target all the way up to the front. By the time we get to check out Quinn is asking for something, Hudson is crying and Eleanor is in a full blown tantrum. Umm…yeah, Ross why don’t you take them to the car.
The young man checks me out. I get in the car and Ross says, “You’re leaking”. I look down at my GRAY shirt to find a nice wet spot on my left boob. Awesome.
