Honestly, reading this mom's blog was one of the best laughs I have had in a while. Please read www.mom2my6pack.blogspot.com.
The mom that wrote this blog began her writing journey once her kids "snuck" Pokemon cards into her buggy at the grocery store. (thanks A for sending it to me) How many of us have dragged ourselves and our kids through the store and thought, I have got to write this down, well she did. The outpouring cries around the world have led this mom to become someone who's blog gets thousands of hits a day. Once the kids, "stole" the cards (she realized it once she got home)she posted the cards on ebay with a hilarious story explaining what a trip to the store is like for her. I honestly laughed out loud and had tears in my eyes as I read her account of this trip. I believe she said the first day she had 44,000 hits or so on ebay. Hysterical. She seems totally humbled by the experience as she is just like us, everyday moms just making to bedtime. I promise you will not be disappointed if you find her blog.
It led me to a memory of my own attempt to take many, not all, of my kids to the grocery store one summer when I was pregnant with J. It was actually to super Wal-mart and it was not a pretty sight. I typically travel to the grocery store alone while everyone is away at school or preschool or just take little J with me. Yes, I have to go to the grocery store at least 4 times every 7-8 days. Most grocery stores simply don't make carts big enough for more than 2-3 days of stuff for us. The new Kroger in our town does (those from my town know it will always be the "new" Kroger) Funny since it is now the only one. I am sure many of you have your own grocery store tales. Every mom does!!!
