Yesterday was a very busy day for me. It didn't start out that wonderfully because we had 2 fire detectors start chirping in the middle of the night and we had no 9 volt batteries in the house. It obviously could have been worse because the annoying chirps didn't bother the girls. So for that I was very thankful. As for me, by 9 am I was twitching every time there was a chirp. By this time I had a tremendous headache and I was a bundle of nerves. I needed to go to the grocery store anyway yesterday morning and now I needed to add batteries to my list. I called my mom in a bit of desperation asking her if she could watch the girls so I could go to Target alone. This gave me the opportunity to sort of "zone" and wake up slowly while getting the groceries and batteries that I needed.
The girls usually do really great in the store, but they are toddlers and you have to keep up a dialogue to keep them entertained when they are confined to the cart. We walk through the store pointing out colors and shapes and even letters that are on products. I wasn't up for conversation yesterday at all. So I dropped the girls off an Nanna's house and went to Target. After shopping I went back home, unloaded and put up all the groceries and installed batteries in the two beeping alarms. Then I went and picked up the girls. By this time I was much more refreshed and I had a pleasant afternoon with them. Here are a few pictures mom took with her camera while they were playing with her and Popo.
