So the kids had a dentist appointment today. That shoul d be a mundane task, but not for me! My daughter did fine, even had her first set of X-Rays. Then it was my son's turn. Now, keep in mind it was his first visit to the dentist (he's only 2) but the child wouldn't get in the chair. (With or without me.) We finally coaxed him with a toothbrush (he thought it was a toy) and the dentist was able to brush his teeth. Baby steps.
Next on the agenda -- he needed a haircut. The child HATES haircuts! So, I decided that maybe it would help to take him to a salon that specializes in children. When it came our turn you would have thought we were trying to cut off a limb, not just hair. He screamed louder that I have ever heard him scream. The lady was great though and calmed him fairly quickly. We were able to leave sain, and he had a decent haircut.
On to Target. Kindergarten school supplies -- I like to get a head start on things. Now of course the list was on the fridge at home, so I asked a worker if they had one available. Well, I guess I was too early, because they won't have those until next week. (I should have gone to Wal-Mart). I figured I was already there so why not spend some money -- right? I start moving up and down isles, putting things in the buggy and taking things out when the kids decide they are hungry. I had forgotten to eat and they were probably starving so I bought them a bag of popcorn and a lemonade each. BIG MISTAKE. Target will be finding popcorn in places they didn't know popcorn could go for a LONG time.
All in all I think I got a lot accomplished today. I stayed within my calorie goal - although I had to make a few adjustments because I was out and forgot about lunch. Not to bad I'd say.
