It’s official: As long as my 38″ partner in crime is in tow, I will never be able to “zip” in and out of anything or anywhere. Ever. Again.

With a 3 year old, there is nothing quick, fast, seamless, or easy about getting anything of importance done really.
Everything requires patience, precision, and a go with the flow mentality.
As a former master of errands, multi-tasking, and to-do list crossing, this hurts me greatly.
However, I have learned that adding 20 minutes (and a bag of peanut butter pretzels) of THIS….
… to do what would have/ should have taken me 20 seconds to buy THIS….
… is priceless.

    The time it takes me to get my 3 year old ready and in the car is the same amoutn of time it would have taken me to run the errand without him.

    Oh those car carts drive me nuts. I can never maneuver them through the aisles properly and I always end up knocking over end caps or bumping into an unsuspecting shopper. But they love them so much it's hard to resist! The double wide stroller/carts at Target just might be the death of me.
