(5) Wed Mar 28 2007 19:54 Gah!: I ventured out, by myself, with the two kids in tow, listened to Gunnar scream the entire way to Costco because he hates being in a car seat, was in rush hour traffic because that's when my kids woke up from a nap, listened to Lily scream because Gunnar was screaming, got all the way to Costco, picked up a package of diapers and D batteries because Gunnar was out and he had literally zero diapers, and the bouncy seat had been out of batteries and unusable otherwise with no vibrations or music, so as you can see this trip was a must otherwise why would I be so stupid to go out under these conditions, and it was put off a couple days because I knew this would happen, had to do it during the day because Aaron has been gone till after Costco closes to study for a big test, not to mention the frozen yogurt I bought Lily to bribe her with she insisted on holding in her car seat in which I gave in because there was only a little bit left and didn't want to hear the crying all the way back in which she then proceeded to smear it all over her body behind my back, only to finally get home and to realize Lily only has about a dozen diapers left as well and I didn't buy her any. Ugh. I am seriously having a bad week and only hope that finals week has mercy on me. I would be the most awful single parent; I don't know how people do it. Probably go crazy like I am doing right now.

I feel your pain. K was out of town for 10 days a couple of weeks ago. It is hard to be one one man Mommy show all day and all night. May the force be with you!

I was just telling Susie last night that we are not having another one until Maggie is potty trained. That is way too many diapers.
