I have a lot to catch-up on, but today's outing needed to be first on the list.
I have had a stack of online returns to take back sitting on my floor for like a month now and I haven't wanted to do it during the day with Cohen because 1. he's a pill 2. i can't push his stroller and hold the huge box at the same time and 3. returning things always frustrates me because the cashiers never know what they are doing. Well, today I decided I would go to just one of the stores on my list, mainly because my credit card payment is due and I don't want to have the charge outstanding.
So, I get Cohen in his stroller and am making my way through Sears to get to the store I need and he decides to puke all over himself and the floor. Really? If I had collected the full amount I think it would add up to at least 12 ounces. Did he drive himself to 7-11 for a super big gulp without me knowing? All I could think was this is now the 4th time he has done this to me in a store. 1. IKEA. 2. Target. 3. Home Depot and now 4. Sears. I think the kid has something against shopping.
I proceed to strip off all his clothes and thankfully, the Sears people are so helpful, bringing me paper towels and a bag to put his clothes in. Meanwhile, I am debating whether to buy him a new outfit at Sears (thinking, thinking) or to remove my hoodie and wrap him up in it. May not seem like a huge decision but I only have a tank top on underneath. So, just wanting to get the bleep out of there I start tucking my g's - so as not to confuse any of the "fashionistas" working at Sears and head for the door.
Cohen - next time wait until mommy is at work and daddy is taking care of you, okay?
