clean out the car and take it to the shop
go to the thrift store to get beach towels, books, lap desks for car )and probably a half a dozen other things completely unrelated to the beach or our trip)
find portable DVD player and kids tents (they are sleeping in them in the hotel room)
sew up last minute totebags for neice and nephews
snacks for the road and the beach (cheaper up here than down there)
alcohol (cuz I'll need it to recover from the 6 hour drive)
an attitude adjustment for monkey
Ok, so the new 'tude, sanity and muzzle I can't really buy, as much as I might want to. Today has been particularly trying and included me leaving a full cart of things in the middle of Target while I had to wisk my child back to the car. If you were at the Target in Elk Grove and heard money having dino-raptor temper tantrum, I apologise. 10 minutes later after he got his consequences he was giggly and cute. You would have never known that he had ever had a melt down.
Is it just me or are three year olds bi-polar? I just remind myself that it is just temporary. Temporary. As in not forever....right??
