So today the plan was to take a trip to Target and get out of the house. Everyone was up early... I even got a quick shower in AND brushed my teeth (this is a good day so far). Izzy eats her breakfast which included strawberry milk in the pink cup, yogurt and granola with waffle dippers... and then of course mom's blueberry oatmeal. Everyone was dressed, happy... let's go to Target.
In the car we go, take a quick 5 minute drive, park next to the cart gate and start to unload into the nifty shopping cart that also has seating for toddlers. Sophia is in the cart in her car seat and then Izzy is going to ride in the handy-dandy toddler seat... or is she? She decides that she is going to stand up and hang from the push bar and not sit on the seat. After asking nicely many times I finally decide to try to wrestle her into the seat and then strap her in... but she is feisty... and this only resulted in a banchee scream/cry fit! (she's not really crying just screaming at the top of her lungs AHAHAHahahAHAHAHAahah...lol it is really quite funny to hear... high scream, low scream almost like a song AHHHHHahhhhhAHHHaahh, but I had to keep my mom face on) This mom and daughter stand off goes on for about 5 minutes or so... many people politely smiling and laughing to themselves as they watch me try to rationalize with a 23 month old. Finally I decide you know what I said no you have to sit down or we are going to go home... so we packed back up and headed home (NO ELMO either... oh my I am a mean mom) Hmm... well we went the long way home and took about a 30 minute drive around the lake and ended with drive-thru lunch from Sandy's burger hut. By the time we got home it was lunch then a much needed nap for Izzy. Sophia napped in the car so she was wide awake ready to play while sister had her down time. Naps make everything better.
Not too long after Izzy woke up from her nap it was time to go out in the driveway and wait on daddy... always keeping an eye out for wolly powees and butterflies!
Once daddy arrived it was a quick change and then we were all off to the park. Izzy loves going to the park. Sophia had a very big day at the park today also... daddy put her in the baby swing and she just giggled. He took some video and pictures on his phone and I will have to post it later.
So the day ended perfectly... we'll try Target again tomorrow ;)
