Today I decided to take Madi out for some good old fashion shopping. So I gave Dan the baby and off the two of us went to the Shoppes at Chino Hills. First stop was into Forever21 because let’s just face it, my wardrobe needed a little r&r and since my birthday is next week Dan said I could get a few things. So there we are walking around the store and I am picking items that I am contemplating trying on when Madi says:
“I have to go potty.”
Dangit! I have an armload of clothes and I know Madi will NOT be able to hold it so I hand the clothes to a sales girl and rush to the restroom. Thank God it wasn’t that far. We made it inside the stall and I am literally laying down the toilet cover when All of a sudden…..Madi goes on the floor and in her underwear. We were right next to the toilet for crying out loud!!!!!
I know I will laugh about this one day. I know I will laugh about this one day. I…. You get the point. Ha! Who knew potty training would provide so many entertaining stories to tell. At least she verbalized that she needed to go. That is the important part! So I did make sure to applaud her for that.
But the toilet was right there…….
Moving on. So I didn’t go back to Forever immediately. Instead we took a detour and stopped by the Sanrio store (Hello Kitty) and I bought Madi a stuffed Hello Kitty doll. Then we headed back to Forever and I purchased some cute clothes for date night and lounging around. I also bought a cute pair of sandals from Reflections (they are having a huge sale right now) to wear with a couple of my outfits.
We walked around for a half hour and then Madi decided she wanted to go home. It was really hot outside but she did amazing. I love shopping with this little girl. She is a lot of fun and believe it or not loves to put her own outfits together. She is extremely fashionable. I love that about her.
On the way home I grabbed a frappucino for myself and then it was back into mommy mode. The break was just what I needed and it was so much fun to just hang out with my baby girl like I used to. I know she has missed the one on one interaction since Sean has arrived. So I think at least once a week I will need to make sure just do outings with her, even it just means going grocery shopping or running errands. I don’t ever want her to feel as if she is no longer loved or important to me just because she has a new sibling.
Hope you all have a spectacular weekend!!
