I went to Walmart the other day...all by myself...with my 3 girls 2 and under. That in itself is enough to create a lot of interest. I don't do it very often, but my hubby has been working a lot, and we needed groceries.
So I gathered up my energy and decided to brave Walmart and Aldi with 3 girls and 1 double stroller. But first we had to stop by the church to drop off some things for my hubby, and for a potty stop for my oldest. Then on to Walmart and Aldi. I wish I had pictures to make this story better...but can you imagine me juggling a camera too?
In Walmart I just used the stroller and my oldest helped me push. We had a limit of whatever could fit down in the basket part of the stroller, and we barely made it. I got a lot of stares...and a lot of smiles...and a few comments. Interesting what having twins does to you. Well and probably the fact that I have 3 little ones so close together. Mostly I feel like either a celebrity or a weirdo...because of how people react when they see me making my way around with my little brood in tow. :-) We made it through Walmart with not much fussing, and I even remembered to use my coupons!
When we got to Aldi I knew all the groceries I needed to get couldn't possibly fit in the stroller basket, so I opted for the shopping cart with one in the front and two in the back in the basket with all the groceries. I was really glad that we managed to fit in everything that we needed!
A few of the comments I heard from random people in the store...just crazy how many people stop to look and comment.
"Mercy! Three of them! And they're all girls!" Said while shaking head in disbelief. I just smiled.
"God bless you!"
"Are they twins?"
"Are they all yours? Goodness, you have your hands full!"
"What a beautiful bunch you have!"
"Are they twins? Are they boys?" It's not often I get asked if they're boys.
"Are they all yours? All girls?"
"Oh my! They're so cute!"
Funny how many people stop to ask questions, and even funnier what they say sometimes. I'm sure I was probably quite a sight. But I love my crazy life. Every outing is pretty much an adventure!
In the end we made it home alive with a bunch of food to eat. :-)
