A few days ago I got the brilliant idea to go and buy groceries because our cabinets were starting to look pretty scary. Of course my very smart husband suggested I wait until the next day when he's off and I could leave Ethan with him. But no, I am super mom, hear me ROAR!
I mean its just a grocery store, nowhere scary, and "I'll do it right after I feed Ethan, because then the car ride will put him to sleep". If only I knew.
1st mistake- Didn't make out a grocery list, because after all I was just planning on getting a "few" things.
Mistake number 2. Our grocery store is probably only a half a mile away, which isn't really enough time for a baby to really fall asleep.
Mistake number 3 ( this is the big one) Taking my time!!
I was enjoying doing something different so I decided there was no reason to rush. Got to the store, Ethan was asleep, put him in the cart and headed inside. Veggies-check, Deli counter- Check, Meat- Check. Cereal- No check! About the time I made it to the cereal aisle I started to lose my battle with my sleeping angel. At first it was just a few moans and grunts so I grab the cereal and decide its time to hurry things along. Oh wait I need spagetti, time to back track. Right as I got to the pasta aisle Ethans little moans and grunts turned into a full on screaming fit. As if he was saying " Listen here lady, get me the heck out of this car seat!" So I pulled out his paci and bought myself a few extra minutes. After that there was no stopping him. So there I stood now in the milk section with a red faced, screaming newborn. At that point I just started grabbing stuff, because I mean its food, we'll eat it eventually and I ran to the check out.
And yet I still had a second to snap a picture
I can just hear what he was thinking now " Nobody puts baby in the carseat... nobody."
