My Kids Are AWESOME!

We have a HUGE winter storm coming and due to the flu hitting us hard this week I had not been able to get to the grocery.

I got Amaya off to school this morning and the snow hadn't started yet so I told Jaxson and Paige to hurry and get dresses we were going to go to the grocery. We live in a very small town so W*lmart is 10 miles away.

They were super quick getting ready so we were off. If you have ever been shopping with a 4 year old you know it's not the fastest thing in the world. Somehow at 4 you need to explore everything and of course go to the bathroom because it's different than the bathroom at home. So shopping with two 4 year olds takes even longer. We pulled up to the store and the snow started coming. The kids know I am terrified of driving in snow and I looked at them and said "this has to be a very fast shopping trip."

These awesome 4 year olds of mine let me get a whole weeks worth of shopping done in 15 minutes with NO bathroom breaks. Paige asked me if they could get chocolate milk since they were so fast and you better believe this momma said "yes babies, you can have chocolate milk."

It started snowing and freezing rain as soon as we got home. So we are in now for the weekend and they are drinking chocolate milk.

I love it when my little ones rise to the occasion, too. They look very satisfied with their reward...yummy chocolate milk! Such sweet blessings!
