I did it. I survived. I can’t believe I’ve been a mom for well over 3 years and this is the first time I’ve ever had to accomplish this task but it is. And. I. Did. It.
I went “to town” with both boys in tow and no other adult presence. Yeah, I’ve gone to the tiny local grocery store where we all know each other, there is no traffic, and I don’t for a second worry about anyone stealing anyone…or anything for that matter.
But I’d never gone big. I’d never gone through a place of strangers and crazy drivers, a place of “I want that!” temptations and loading and unloading kids and groceries all at the same time. Until last Monday. On Monday, I did it.
