I don't know if the people were more shocked to see triplets or that I was alone at the grocery with triplets! I just was pretty nonchalent about it, because the way I look at it...I am with them alone all day at home, what would be the difference at the store besides I have 2 carts (push one, pull one) 3 babies and 10,000 gawkers! :) I am still a little amazed by how bold some people are with questions and also why they still stand in front of my cart making it impossible to move and ask 10 more questions even after stating "I'm sure it's hard to get through the grocery because so many people stop you." Uh, yea, it kind of is....but I was in a really good mood today and felt like I was accomplishing something, so I answered questions and didn't ram anyone with my carts. Of course, instead of sleeping, all 3 stayed awake and Alexis even had a little "big girl" time in the cart! (no I don't have one of those nifty cart covers yet....next on the list....but I did wipe it done obsessively...not good enough I'm sure, but I could hold her, and push and pull 2 carts, so she had to sit in the seat.)
I did run over my own heel with the cart I was pulling and feel like I have arthritis in my right hand since I had to steer it with only one hand, but we survived, I have dinner planned for the next 4-5 nights and actually have all of the ingredients on hand now. (ok, one of those nights will probably be carryout pizza, but hey, who doesn't love pizza?)
So I will leave you with this....next time you are in the grocery and you see a mom of multiples or even a mom with more than one child, please keep your questions to 5 or less....she is probably just trying to survive those next 45 mins and still make it home before the frozen stuff starts to thaw. :) Happy almost Friday!
