I love Costco, I really do. Especially with as many diapers as we go through at this house. But going to Costco with both of my kids is pretty much the bain of my existence. Usually they aren't too bad. But here is my dillema. They bicker if they are both in the cart, but if I let Beth get down i'm constantly worried i'm going to lose her in that huge store cramed full of people. If I threaten her life enough she stays close, but then she like the hang on the the cart and ride, which I usually like since she can't get lost, but she's not fighting with her brother. That is usually our solution, until today, when she jumped off while I was pushing the huge heavy cart and I inevitibly ran over her toe, and havoc ensued. The screaming, crying, every one stopping to look at me kind of havoc. I just love that kind! She really wasn't majorly hurt. No blood. No broken bones. But my darling daughter is a bit of a drama queen so it was quite the scene. I finally wrestled her back into the cart and finished our shopping, but she was a MAJOR pill for the rest of the time. I was trying not the be that mom in the store yelling at her kid the whole time, but I sure wanted to be! I was trying to do it quietly at least. Anyway, all I have to say is, it is a very good thing I don't have to do Costco trips very often. The regular grocery store is quite enough for me.
