So, there I was...Axel in one arm headed to DVD section of our local library after spending two hours at a birthday party.
My timing couldn't have been better.
Lucas (entering the Sugar Crash/I Need Food ASAP Stage) had already found new friends in the kids area so Axel and I searched for the perfect DVDs to cover a trip to from Ohio to New York to New Hampshire to Vermont to Canada and then back to Ohio.
This is no little trip.
This was no little library bag.
Recognizing the need to get both my sugar belly kids out of the library as soon as I could, I was almost running to the DVD's. I start grabbing anything that looks half way interesting or educational and toss it into my HUGE bag. As I'm chucking my DVD's in, I'm talking to Axel about how exciting they will all be and how he is going to love them all. Not once did I ever mention that we were going on a road trip. Axel would figure that out soon enough.
Boy, I started getting the looks from the other moms in the library! They were half mortified and half confused. One lady kept telling her kids, "You can ONLY TWO DVDs and then, we are going to BOOKS!!!
I just kept the pace up, happy as could be realizing what this must look like to those around me. I chuckled inside to think what was going through these mothers heads and what they would be discussing at there next playgroup! I'm pretty sure I grabbed about 20 DVD's in all which really is an enormous pile and quite absurd.
I should have turned and said, "Yes, these are for my baby to watch all day long so I can neglect him. You know, with his crib TV and all?!" Heeheeheehee.
Yep, I was definitely not winning any Mommy of the Year Award in the eyes of the 3pm Saturday library crowd.
Isn't life sweet?! Sure hope our trip is too. :)
