Name that Tune

G's latest occupation: holding a number placemat and singing first "This Old Man" (one to ten) and then "There were ten in the bed and the little one said, Roll over" (ten back down to one). He has found the ultimate, never-ending song!

Our college student who comes in the afternoons is out of town, and my sanity is already a fragile thing. I am plotting to go to every store which has the carts which will hold two or three kids (Target, HEB, Randalls, there must be more). I've been working hard on getting them to walk with me in public, but I still need a "strapping in" option when I've got all three of them. It feels so strange to me that I can't take my kids out by myself. When they were younger and slower-moving, I could, but these days it's just not safe. Everyone tells me this will get easier, and I just have to assume they are right!

I'm just jealous that you have those stores! I have trouble taking all three out too. I don't know too many mom's of 3 that can handle them all in a store without some sort of restraints:) Go have some shopping therapy for me!!

I didn't realize how easy it was to get around with one baby until I had another. It certainly does get better. My baby, Patrick, is 7 years old. My goodness, 7! Time sure is flying by. The worst days were when he was 3 and 4 years old. I can't even imagine taking 3 of them shopping.
