Last weekend there was a not-good swimsuit malfunction at the pool that left Mommy wanting to drown of embarrassment. Instead she went swimsuit shopping the very next day. By herself except for three small children who came along, too. And then! She was so nice that she took them out to lunch!
Again, without any additional adult hands to help! Give this woman an award!
Probably normal adults do this kind of thing all the time, but it felt like a big deal at the time. Mommy felt so capable because she got such a deal on a swimsuit that should not have ANY malfunctioning issues unless it's attacked by a pair of scissors.
And in case you care about the lunch we ate: Chick-fil-a in the mall food court. The girls apparently haven't had those little pouches of mashed fruit before and were preeeetty excited about them. Doesn't take much. Also, Mommy had the cobb salad with a ranch-avacado-lime dressing. So good and full of extra toppings that even a veggie hater would have to love it. Good good good stuff. A reward for being such a capable, cool, collected Mom for two whole hours.
