i'm a stay at home mom, we don't go places very often because money is tight. going to the local playground and pool gets redundant after a while, as does setting up the baby pool in the backyard. there is a beach about 15 minutes from here and i decided to take my kids today. i packed plenty of snacks, drinks, extra swimmers, wipes, towels, the works. i wanted to be prepared for anything lol. well my youngest (turned 18 months today) is stubborn as a mule. i can understand her wanting to run all over the beach like a crazy person, but trying to keep two eyes on three kids made me nervous. i still put up with it anyway, but about 10 minutes later my 2.5 year old said she had to poop. so now, i had to put everyone's shoes on, pack up all the sand stuff that her and my 4.5 year old had drug out to the beach. but as im trying to do this my 18 month old isn't sitting still and since she's totally fearless she kept running into the water, about to give me a damn panic attack. i just put everyone in the car and went home. it was really hot anyway. now i feel bummed that we couldn't just have a relaxing time at the beach :(
what was the last not so good idea you had?
