Shopping Out Of Town

So today was my first trip shopping out of town with my 4month old.

Whoa is all I can say.

I packed plenty of things and figured, hmm I will never use all of this. 4 bottles, 2 apple juices, 4 burp cloths, 3 blankets, 2 pacis, 1 dirty outfit, & 3 bibs later I realized it takes a small arsenal in the diaper bag to be prepared for what these little creatures consume!

At the end of the day, I must say as a previous onlooker to the mothering sport, shopping is just not shopping anymore when you have an infant, it becomes a special technique that takes months to perfect. The one armed stroller push combined with the one armed carry and the hanging clothing on the way down tiny aisles making it to the fitting room takes GREAT skill.

At the end of the day, I couldn't imagine my shopping days ahead without my little Diva because she made the day more interesting than ever before when all I had to worry about was which line to check out!

Tomorrow I will be 24. Ugh. I believe there are two points here. One is negative & one is positive.

So negative being thats 3 years over me turning legal drinking age, which means I probably won't be getting carded anymore, which I in turn now realize is not such a good thing to be the old ladies at the tap?

So positive being lower car insurance. Ha. Watch out Geico.

Plenty Of

One of my least favorite sayings, "Oh don't worry hun, there are plenty of fish in the sea..."

Just toss the bad ones back and keep the good one!

All I have to say is WHOA! What exactly did people smoke when they thought this wonderful statement up.... Because let us take a moment and consider the fact that the sea is the ocean and the ocean just happens to cover 66% of the Earth's surface.... That is one huge fishing adventure people.

At this rate I am going to need a bigger boat (Jaws reference).

Starting the therapy. . . since it can't be from a mall . . .

So shopping for me is definitely a therapeutic thing. However, in light of my most recent traumatic life stress I have been encouraged to use other outlets in therapy. I am a talker and a writer, so this is my decision to blog and see if I feel relieved any. . . .  .

I have the most wonderful creature in the world asleep in the next room from me. She happens to be the offspring. I am a mom, but not the carpooling, supper is in the over, and bake sale kind of mom.... More the I am single doing this on my own kinda thing. Its rough, but it is what it is.

As far as moms out there who are that ideal betty crocker/martha stewart type, I have nothing against you---I do admire you and I applaud your success in a nuclear family setting. I am blogging to talk about the issues we moms that don't have the picture perfect setting can relate to.  . .

I hope by explaining (moreso venting) my relationship issues, family experience, & daily adventures I will help some mom out there, even if it is only one, feel like she can relate!
