Cabin fever is rough when you have five kids. I don’t enjoy going anywhere with that many kids but I also get really pent up staying inside all winter with those five kids!
One day during the last week I decided to take my kids to Chik-Fil-A for lunch. I was sick to death of cooking. And Everett didn’t sleep for an entire week because he got two new teeth so I was feeling pretty crazy.
Chik-Fil-A was good. All my kids were good and it was fun. They asked me if they could play in the playplace but I was feeling a little too germophobic for that. I was tempted to just let them but I also thought maybe during the cold season and with all the crazy flus and measles and crap going around I’d just limit us to being in the restaurant but not the play-place.
We went to See’s Candies next because Sierra wanted to use some of her birthday money on chocolates. In the end I paid for hers and got the other kids each a chocolate of their choice and a lollipop.
And then I really wanted to just go home because it was cold out and I was sick of wrangling my offspring but Sierra desperately wanted to go spend her birthday money so where do we go? Wal-Mart. And it was a gross Wal-Mart. But Sierra got her toy and everyone was happy so… win?
