Year 2 Day 125: Mommy View
We did our first proper grocery haul in Asda tonight with Ryan in tow. They have shopping trollies specifically designed to accommodate an infant carseat so we decided to give one a spin. Unfortunately, I found a few "minor" yet irritating flaws.
First of all, the trollies in general have all four wheels rotating. This means that instead of fixed wheels in the back (like in the States), you have to maneuver the trolley through aisles using all your upper body strength to keep it going in a straight line. Not fun.
Secondly, what you see in this photo is my ACTUAL view. Yes, that's right...my gorgeous son and not much past him. Have I mentioned I'm only FIVE FEET TALL?! Matt had to walk in front and pull the trolley behind him so I wouldn't run over pensioners and small children.
But I digress. We made it out safely, no one was harmed, and now I'm home waiting for Matt, who popped out to pick up a parcel that my Nan had sent for Ryan. More to come about that tomorrow...
Almost forgot...baby clinic visit today. Ryan is now 10 lbs 13 oz (12 ounces up from last week)...I can't believe it. I hope he slows down a bit or he'll pass being able to fit into his 3-6 month clothes!
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
