Since I put off buying diapers yesterday, I knew I had to go today. Maddy and Libby had their 18 month checkup this morning and we unfortunately discovered that they both had ear infections. Double yuck, since Maddy just had one a few weeks ago. But everything else was great and surprisingly, even Maddy is back on the charts. Maddy weighed in at 21 lbs, 3 oz. and Libby was 22 lbs, 11 oz. Maddy was 30.5 inches and Libby 30 3/4 inches.
So, off to Target to pick up prescriptions and diapers.
I was unable to find one of their double shopping carts in the parking lot, so I took them in the stroller. If you've ever tried to push a double stroller and carry two boxes of diapers and a box of wipes, I can tell you that it's nearly impossible. Believe me, I've tried. Yes, I buy two kinds - Target brand for day and Pampers for night. The Target brand are much cheaper and work fine, but just not for overnight. The stroller has a great basket underneath the seats that works great for smaller items, but unfortunately, large boxes don't fit.
When I paid for the prescriptions, I asked if I could go ahead and buy the diapers and also asked if she had large bags. I hung the diapers and wipes over the handles of the stroller and headed out to the parking lot.
I pulled Maddy out of the stroller, and suddenly the stroller flipped back because of the extra weight of the wipes and diapers. Poor Libby was just looking up at me with an expression like, "What the hell just happened?" I pulled the bags off and got the stroller back to an upright position. I'm sure whoever saw me in the parking lot thought I had lost it.
So my safety warning for the day: If you think the box of wipes weighs more than your daughter, don't hang them from the back of your stroller. Unless you want the other daughter to go on a really fun ride!
