I really don't mind cooking. I just mind coming up with the recipe and then going to the grocery store to pick up the ingredients. Speaking of managing my home and making sure we have provisions to man the troops..... "Do not bring all of the crew @ the same time to the grocery store." However, I do have to say we did provide the entertainment to all of the onlookers at Trader Joe's the other day. At first I thought everybody had big eyes because they were afraid my girls were going to hit them at full force with their mini me carts. Then it dawned on me, their staring at me because I looked like the parade in Loa, UT on the 4th of July. All I had to do was go up and down a couple of isles and call it a parade. They only have like 5 floats in that parade up there in the pride of Wayne County and just in case you miss it they turn around and come back one more time. Finally people started coming over to confirm if what they saw was true by asking, "Um are those all of your kids?" Followed by, "Wow you are very brave lady", which computes to you are a very crazy lady. The word spread like wildfire and before I knew it I was in the middle of a huddle with many more follow up questions. To me I was thinking what's the big deal. I guess you don't see such a sight on a daily basis but please if you really want to see something fun check out my friend with quintuplets, she is much more entertaining. By the time we were almost through we had only one cart tipping incident on the cereal isle, two extra items that had been smuggled & I had only been hit three times in the ankle by mini Me's cart. We finally arrive at the check out & I see that we were in chatty cashier guy's lane. I thought to myself, try hard to act natural because it's no fun to talk to a frazzled Momma. I took a deep breath, for I was almost out of the woods. But wait, how am I going to get the groceries out to the car? Chatty cashier guy came through and called the nicest girl to help me out to the car and he even said when we were leaving, "Wow, I'm really surprised by how well your kids behaved". Yes, I made it and with all things considered it was a success but I'll be glad to go by myself next time. After all, I get to experience this type of entertainment on a daily basis.
