On our way out to Costco
Lets just say bath time is not a priority in this house. It's recommended babies be bathed once a week but not more than twice since they have sensitive skin. These guys are lucky if they get a bath every two weeks! I've found out that the stinkiest part of a baby is not in their diapers but their hands. Their hands are always clenched and a little moist, perfect conditions to create a finely aged cheese smell. I try picking out the lint and wiping them with a baby wipe but that just takes the edge off and doesn't last very long. What they need is a good lather every three days but who has time for that.
So we made a trip to Costco with the boys this weekend just so I could get out of the house and enjoy a delicious hotdog. I pushed Caleb and Eli in the double stroller and Phil carried Thomas in a carrier. I wish I had counted the times I heard "TRIPLETS!!" I figured if they weren't in their triplet stroller maybe people wouldn't noticed as much but I was wrong. The matching hats probably didn't help either. I feel like a celebrity without the fame and fortune.
Thomas slept the entire time but Caleb and Eli had a great view from their stroller so they stayed up the entire time allowing themselves to become over stimulated. Caleb and Eli lost it as I waited for Phil to get our hotdogs. Caleb was ok as long as I kept moving so I went outside and pushed the stroller in circles. Eli was not having it so he had to be held. So there I was pushing the stroller with one hand while I held Eli in the other. I don't think we are ready for Costco.
