I usually don't go to the grocery store with all 4 children. I knew what I was getting into when I ventured out with all of them though I didn't anticipate the extent of the craziness. I usually go when Cannon is at preschool so I have just the girls with me and everything goes just fine. Laine is an angel on her own. Siblings just know each other too well so they can set each other off. And being out of milk makes me feel like there is no food in the house so I felt the need to get to the store.
Sommer was perfect for the entire outing, smiling at everyone. I didn't even mention her. I had her in the baby bjorn so she could see all the action, that kept her busy. Early in our trip, still in the produce section, some Safeway people walked by and one of them said to me, even though I was trying not to look at her, "he got his way after all," regarding Cannon's tantrum upon our entrance to the store. I think I kind of half-smiled in her direction but Sommer was looking right at her, grinning away and kicking. It was hard to tell, was she trying to be sympathetic or not? Hopefully people looked at my smiling baby more than my sour face.
