This is one of those stories that just must be recorded.
After taking the boys to school, I had to make a quick stop at the post office. I only needed to mail something and get a book of stamps. The girls were with me and, to be honest, running errands with two toddlers is just no fun. I know most would agree with me on that one. So, at the post office, I figured that if the line was short, I would leave the girls in the locked car and just run in really quick. Seriously, my errand would take less time then it would take just to get the stroller out of the car. And, I don't care what anyone says- it is not really hot or really cold outside and the girls would be perfectly safe in a locked car for two minutes. So, I peek in the post office and of course, the line is long- long enough that I know I shouldn't leave the girls in the car that long. Sigh...
I went out to the car, got the stroller out, loaded the girls and went into the post office. While in line, the girls were taking off their shoes and throwing them and trying to climb out of the stroller. When we went back out the car, I was definitely frustrated. My 2 minute errand had turned into a 20 minute errand. I was loading the girls and grumbling to myself about the long line, the girls causing havoc, the fact I was tired, etc. Then, as I was strapping Ellie into her car seat, she said "hug?" So I gave her a hug and she wrapped her arms around my neck and said "I yuvs you!" (I love you!)
What was I complaining about? It suddenly didn't matter anymore- it was worth it!
