What are people thinking?

Today the weather was warm, I think it hit 60 but the wind was blowing SOO hard it was annoying - obviously people are ready for beach weather because I saw so many people today wearing tank tops, shorts, and sandals. PEOPLE IT'S NOT SUMMER YET!!! I admit I wore more of a spring shoe today but tank tops and flip flops??? It just made me laugh.

The three younger ones and I went to Costco today and then had lunch there. Afterwards I asked Carter if he thought he could throw his plate away in the trash can without touching the trashcan. His reply cracked me up .. . . . "I can try, I've never done that before." He's probably right, usually I think they lick it, just kidding but they seem to hug the darn thing at least. Grosses me out. I should probably shower those two anytime we get back from running errands.

I usually do my big grocery shopping without kids at night but today I took all three kids and I hit three stores, the bank, and the dry cleaners. They did really good and I don't think I spent more than 20 extra bucks on things I wouldn't have usually bought if I was alone like Superhero popsicles, a pack of gum, and frozen waffles. I was reminded how far we've come with the twins . . . when we shop at Walmart if they do a good job we go LOOK at the toy aisles. (Three strikes and we don't go!!!) When they were 2 or even 3 we'd usually have at least one of them have a melt down when we left the toy aisle without the toy. Now they just constantly ask, "Can you buy me this for my birthday??" I always say, "We'll see!" This pleases them . . . their birthday is like 6 months away!!! Today . . . we looked and we left. Both boys walked away from the toy aisle on their own two feet and that was it. I love those moments when I recognize the progress we've made over the years. Notice I said both boys walked away. . . . Taters is two and just knew I was going to buy the Barbie make up kit. Sorry princess - someday you'll walk away on your own two feet too.

That's my day!!! Now I'll stay inside and watch the wind whip around outside!!
