Here is another confession. I have never, not once, bought or listened to any Kid Bop Cd's. I could not torture myself or my children with that crap! My son actually thinks that the saying goes "sticks and stones may break my bones but chains and whips excite me" and that is fine by me. So even when the kids are in the car we listen to the regular radio stations but being alone and able to crank it up and sing it as loud as I want...priceless. Another perk to my day alone was when it was time to leave my destination I didn't have to drag a crying toddler out while carrying a 22 lb baby and a huge diaper bag and inevitably still forgetting some crucial item (like a binky), which you will need about 15 minutes after you have departed. I kind of felt like I was jogging out the door it was so easy.
This is not to say I don't love coming home. Bell has started to run and it is the cutest most pathetic thing I have ever seen. If you can picture a penguin running then you have it pegged. She gets going and then within moments that giant baby head just takes her down. I heart this totally, and when I got home yesterday she did it just for me. Noah on the other hand loves himself some daddy time so I don't think he missed me near as much. Selfish little lady that I am, this morning all I could dream about was another car ride solo so I volunteered to go to my favorite place in the whole wide world...MARKET BASKET!!! When I got home this is what was going on.
We had to bust out the power tools. I mean what man job is complete until you are using power tools to rip through tire steel in the name of a swing am I right?
See this is how my kids get down. I mean what self-respecting 30 year old mom doesn't rock out to Britney Spears? Love how Bell says to hell with this and turns the T.V on 1/2 way through. Oh and the monkey on the couch is what is busting out the grooves.
