Change of plans...

Well, if you read my post this morning, you knew that our plans today included lunch, a movie, and our quarterly endo appointment. Apparently, the kids had other plans in mind. And they were NOT good ones.

After I posted this morning, I gave the kids a bath and got them ready for our day of fun. I decided we would go to Peter Piper Pizza for the lunch buffet and some games. We ended up meeting my mom there and the kids enjoyed themselves.

After we were done I decided to head over to DSW in the same parking lot. I have been on the search for some sandals. And those of you who know me know that I HATE shoe shopping since I wear a size 11-12, usually wide. Anyway, I found some sandals and they are super cute. We were heading to the register to pay for them when the kids started to play with all the belts and socks near the doors. My mom and I kept asking them to stop playing with those things and they just weren't listening.

Then my mom went over to try to get the kids to come stand by us and they both TOOK OFF running through the store. They just kept running and running and running. Anytime we would get near them they would run the other way. I seriously felt like one of those families you see on Super Nanny and I have NEVER been more embarrassed in my entire life. I finally caught up to The Princess and grabbed her by the hand. Then I had to carry her because she refused to walk holding my hand and there was NO way I was letting go.

The Superhero was running towards the register area, so I headed back up that way and acted like I was leaving. He finally came over and I grabbed his hands and dragged both of my kids out of the store. As soon as we were out, I put them both in time out. I was FUMING and was SO mad I wanted to cry. It was the worst feeling EVER.

And due to the shoe store debacle, the movie we were going to see was canceled and NAPS were on the new agenda. This of course did not come without a fight but there was NO WAY I was taking these two to a movie after they acted that way.

After naps we went to the Endo for our quarterly check up. Normally I don't worry about the A1C at all. I usually have a good feeling and at least can feel like I did everything I could, no matter what our report said. This time, I felt different. I really felt like it had gone up and that I should have done more these last few months. So when they told me his A1C was DOWN to 7.3 from 7.4, I was SHOCKED.

And our appointment was even better this time around because we got to hang out with Wendy from Candy Hearts and her girls since Sugar had her quarterly appointment right after ours. It was like a little Diabetes party at the Endo's office.

Then on the way home, some engine lights came on on my car. The car was also vibrating when I was idling at stoplights. Not good. I made a stop at the Toyota dealer on the way home and got a rental car from them. Had to move the car seats with the kids playing around next to me.

And finally made it home after the long day.

REALLY hoping these two go to bed SOON so I can have some ME time tonight.

Oh wow Tracy what a day! You even managed to blog! Kudos to you. We all have those crazy days with the kids. I blame the moon, or additives in foods. xx

I could totally picture the scene in DSW. Unfortunately, I've lived through several of them. I've carried captured, kicking, screaming kids more times than I can remember. At least your mom was there to help. Still, I know the embarrassment and upset you felt! I'm sorry they gave you such a rough time today. I hope tomorrow is a much better day!!!

OY sorry on the store incident but way to go mama on the A1C!!

Lucky you and Wendy hanging out! :)

I can totally relate to the shoe store incident...my girls have put me in a similar situation once before (and hopefully never again). I tried telling myself that the other people in the store understood if they have/had kids.
As for the A1c, way to go! Glad you were able to get some good news!!!

I have chased my fair share of runaway children through the store. Mine are 14 months apart and would feed off eachother while running in opposite directions. I stopped leaving the house at one point.

But all is good now and I actually will leave then there if they pull that crap anymore... so they don't :)

Hope today in full of sunshine.
