So Easy With One

June 24, 2008

When the Big One was little, I used to dread taking her to the store, mall or to run errands. I used to think it was difficult to take her places. Then I had the Little One. Having two munchkins in tow added a whole new dimension to the shopping and errand-running adventures. I guess over the last year or so I have gotten used to the noise, whining and constant begging for something to hold.

This week the Big One is in Day Camp all day long so it’s just me and the Little One. Today while we were out running errands I realized how amazingly easy it is to just have one to go shopping with. The Little One was perfectly content to ride in her stroller all over the store. She chatted with everyone we passed. She waited patiently as I shopped for my mom’s birthday present. She just chilled while I tried to find the perfect birthday card. She even sat there perfectly quiet while I tried in tennis shoes. She was a rock star.

It’s amazing to me how easy it was to just have the one. I can’t believe that I used to complain about taking just one of them out in public. I love them both dearly, but I’d choose to just take one out at a time any day over taking them both out together.
