Fortunately, my mom has been here all week "playing with babies". (That's what she calls it when she comes to help me!) Unfortunately, she went home this morning and took all of her fun "grandma-ness" with her. Fortunately, I planned to occupy our morning at the library. Unfortunately, I forgot what its like to be outnumbered by your kids, even just by one.
Fortunately, I have a great new double stroller so both kids can ride. Unfortunately, Cohen doesn't really like to ride all that often and I lost him. I literally looked away for 2 seconds and he was gone. Fortunately, a librarian noticed my frantic search and helped me find him (climbing up and down the stairs, alone). Unfortunately, it happened again! He didn't want to leave SO HE BOLTED right into the elevator as the doors were closing! Fortunately, an old man stuck his arm in the door to keep it from closing. Unfortunately, he let it close after I'd gone inside the elevator to grab Cohen... thus leaving my 3 month old in his stroller on the 1st floor, while Cohen and I were on our way to the 2nd floor! Fortunately, the elevator had one of those "door open" buttons and we were all reunited!
Are you tired of the fortunately/ unfortunatlies? I could go on and on. I found the book Brad wanted. My library card wouldn't work cuz I had a fine. (I hate having to give money to the library!) I navigated us across the parking lot without Cohen getting hit by a car. The books fell out of the stroller and onto my foot as I was folding it up. I did eventually find the car keys. Jace cried most of the way home so Cohen yelled to drown him out...
You get the picture.
