What a day!

We met Grandma Connie for lunch today at "Baby Redbird's" (Red Robin) and then she took the kids to the park. I went shopping for an outfit to wear Sunday while the kids enjoyed the BEAUTIFUL day. I picked Claire up at Great-Grandma and Papa Bill's and Cohen stayed with Grandma. Claire and I went to David's Bridal to meet Auntie Ashley and the rest of the girls in the wedding party to try on dresses. We had so much fun and Claire looked so cute in her flower girl dress! I can't believe how much she is growing up. Meanwhile, Daddy was at urgent care being diagnosed with Strep. YUCK!

So here's the story of the day. We ran home to get Brian's Rx and dropped it off at Walgreens. While we waited we went and ate dinner. We went back into Walgreens because I needed to get a few things besides the Rx. Claire and Cohen got the giggles while we were in line and couldn't control themselves. Everyone thought they were funny except the lady behind us. She was rather put out and honestly......just plain old grouchy. Imagine her surprise when Claire, amidst her fit of laughter says, "I'm peeing." Yes, that's right. My little girl who has been potty trained for almost 2 years just peed in the floor at Walgreens. The grouchy lady jumped back and gasped "OH MY GOSH!" The part of me that was exhausted wanted to cry. The other part wanted to laugh until I cried. The second part won. I couldn't help it! I asked Claire why she peed and she said it was because she laughed too hard! I lost it. That's funny stuff. Then I hear over the loudspeaker, "We need a manager with a mop to the pharmacy counter for a cleanup!" Then I really lost it. I look over at my 3 year old standing in a HUGE yellow puddle just in time to see Cohen throw his wad of watermelon bubble gum right into the middle of it! SPLASH! The sweet man who was also waiting brought me some paper towels to clean Claire's legs up. I was so thankful for him as I was getting NO sympathy from Miss Grouchy VonScowlsalot. As we left, Cohen had successfully wooed all 3 pharmacists by blowing kisses and telling them "BYE BYE!" Claire literally squeaked out of the store not the least bit phased by the whole ordeal.

Ohhhhh this. is. my. life. And ya know what? I wouldn't have it any other way!

I came home to a VERY SICK husband. Looks like I will be spending the night on the couch. I can't get sick! I REALLY hope we are able to get to church on Sunday. I have been looking forward to it for months. Easter is my FAVORITE service at JRA. The music is AMAZING! I am praying that we can make it!!

I have to tell you your blog is always comic relief to me, which greatly benefits my emotional health as a first time mom:) What amazes me is the people who are often grouchy with incidents like these are often mothers themselves!
