|Ready to go!|
You have got to be kidding me....
It is already a challenge to get both babies out of the car in sunny weather (unload double stroller from car, set it up, take Charlotte out of car seat and strap her into stroller, ditto for Barrett, wave away cars who think you are packing up to leave instead of unpacking because it takes so long, they can't tell if you're coming or going...whew). So. Needless to say, the lengthy double-stroller load/unload in a DOWNPOUR would be ridiculous.
But, we were all ready to go (rare event), and I was determined that we would in fact GO, so we set off to run our planned errands. Well, guess what? As soon as we got to our destination, the rain suddenly stopped and I was able to get the kids out of the car and into the store before it started raining again!
I know it sounds like it would be much simpler to just wait to run errands, but after all of that time and emotional investment in getting us ready to go out the door, I was bound and determined to leave the house, even if we just drove around in the rain.
Does everyone with two young kids go through this? Maybe I'm making it too hard...but it is getting easier everyday, so I'm counting on that. Until then, our favorite outings are still those where the kids don't have to get out of the car (bank drive thru, car wash, drive thru oil change...). Obviously, we have a very glamorous and jet-setting lifestyle.
