"Egg" tastrophy!!!


Ok, today was going well, really! I decided to go run my errands which included going to at least 7 places. So I left at about 11:30 and I had everything I would need, Patricks blankie, his juice, and my grocery list.
We made our first two stops without having a problem then I wanted to go to Target so that I could find something for Patrick to play with outside. He loves to go outside and its something that I should encourage and support but most of the time I am just too tired to go to the park and play with him. Well we have this small grassy area outside our condo which I can sit on our small porch and watch him play but there isnt anything to do out there so I wanted to find something that would keep his attention in our small yard and keep him from running away. Well of course as I am passing all the toys he wants them all!! He is reaching out of the cart trying to grab everything.
Well after I grabbed this cute little water table and a big bouncy ball I headed over to East Hills mall to buy some books at Russos and then over to the new Gottschalks which actually looks pretty good, trust me, I worked there for 4 years! Well then I had to go to the store. Let me tell you how much I hate going to the store. I hate it hate it hate it hate it!!!!!! It wouldnt be so bad if I could leave Patrick home every time. His favorite thing to do is to take the produce that I toss in the basket in bags and try to eat it!! Through the plastic!! Well I solved that problem by giving him the green onions to chew on. So then he decided to use the mac and cheese boxes as maracas. Then he decided to make a tower out of the canned food which got too high and fell out of the basket onto the floor, so of course I had to pick all that up. Then I needed to grab eggs so I put them in the front of the cart by my purse since he only sits in the big part of the basket now. I thought foolishly that they would be safe. Well I was looking for something for a second and as I turn around I watch in slow motion as he grabs the eggs and opens them and by holding the top of the carton is dumping out the entire dozen eggs into by basket all over my groceries and all over the floor. So yes I am looking at 12 eggs all broken everywhere. I was so mad that I told Patrick to sit down and not to touch anything and I tried to clean up the mess as best I could with baby wipes and then I went and told an employee that I dropped a dozen eggs on the floor and then I grabbed a few more things that I needed and decided to call it quits and go home. I of course didnt get all I needed but I was so tired and mad about the eggs and sooooo ready to go home. Patrick cried for while for his blankie which of course was covered with egg muck but he finally fell asleep and I have been able to enjoy some peace and quiet. My mom said welcome to the "Mom Club" and I am just wondering how on earth I am going to it with two children.

LOL. I'm totally not wanting to make you worried or whatever but it IS harder with 2 kids! I will not take them both out to any store but especially the grocery store by myself. I have in the past and I always regret it, I think it was our last trip to foodmaxx that made me resolve to stay home when Devonn couldn't go with us.

Was it "mom club" initiation day or something. We had a terrible story similar to that but instead of eggs it was poop - and tons of it in the middle of costco!!!
