our first outing alone.

me and my girls had our first trip out without papa... to trader joes. i made sure i had like 2 hours to get ready, i even took a shower this morning! i had a plan for getting them in the car, having them in the store and getting them and the groceries inside and then unloaded (we live upstairs so its harder than it seems)... and when we got home i knew it would be perfect timing for ara to go down for her nap. it all went off without a hitch. this is our first day home alone without seth and without ara going anywhere for any amount of time and its going really well... i better knock on wood right now. i'm excited cause i feel like i can do this, i know sometimes it will be crazy, but its not impossible and this is the first time i dont feel totally overwhelmed at the thought of having two kids home with me alone all day....

Oh lordy, you must outline this plan- step by step- IN DETAIL- so that I can copy it exactly in a couple months. haha.

but seriously.

congrats. you just had your first and last time anything with 2 kids goes off without a hitch.

You should have saved it for a better opportunity.

YOU ARE BRAVE! Faye is 4 weeks old and I have yet to do an outing alone with just the three of us. You'll have to tell me all about it.
