Arya is having a little bit of a hard time adjusting to having a new baby in the house. She's not misbehaving, but she's sleeping worse than she was (if that's possible) and she's a lot whinier. I talked to both kids yesterday about doing something with just me this weekend. I explained that I'd take each of them separately and that the other would stay home with daddy and Zia. Arya and Eiley had other plans though. They wanted all of us to do something together. They decided that ice cream at "Old McDonald" was the special thing they wanted to do. Cork and I bumped it up a little and even took them out for lunch. Nothing fancy, but they loved it. Both ate like champions since they've eaten so little the past few days.
This afternoon, we went to the farmers market and then ran some errands. Only sleep deprived parents would think it's a great idea to bring 2 over tired toddlers and one hungry infant shopping. Our trip to Kohls was interesting. I was so frustrated with the girls and then got to the point that I was just laughing at their bad behavior. They were licking each other in the store, imitating the twins who had a gibberish conversation that are on YouTube, making really loud screaming noises, rolling on the floor etc. You name it, they did it. Then I decided to sit on a couch type thing in the middle of the shoe department and feed Zia while they misbehaved. At one point, I have one hand holding Arya on the couch, the other arm holding Zia eating and my legs holding Eiley so she couldn't run off. I think I earned a bad parent award today.
