It was one of the worst shopping trips in the history of the world.
The highlight of the trip was as we were leaving. Payson dropped my coin purse that I’d let him play with (my coin purse has a hard metal clasp opening). I bent down to get it. Brooklyn lunged out of the double stroller (where she was supposed to be sitting on a “timeout”), grabs the coin purse and flings up to hand it back to Payson. Hitting me squarely in the eye. I literally saw stars and almost passed out. I’m surprised my eyeball didn’t fall out.
I stood there for a good minute, maybe two, just holding my eye and trying to wait out the pain. It was pretty bad. Payson was screaming through this whole ordeal and my face hurt so bad I couldn’t even open my eyes. I’m sure we were quite the sight.
I’d taken a couple pictures before my abuse-
Dropping coins in the fountain. Brooklyn picked out her own outfit.
Playing on the stage (I should so build one of these for my house).
Torturing baby brother. He screamed at her right after I snapped this. Payson gets so annoyed with Brooklyn.
After Barnes and Noble I had to stop at Target for diapers. I’d stopped and fed the kids a sack lunch I’d brought but Payson was still really cranky so I grabbed some of these dried fruit bars. He loved them. So much so that I bought three more boxes of them. lol
He ate so much yesterday. As much as Brooklyn. It was ridiculous. He must be going through a growth spurt or something. Which is just what I need- he’s already outgrowing his 12m sized clothes!
