I would like to report that I really no longer dread taking all 4 of my children out to the store with me. Sure, it is easier and faster to go alone, but all in all, the three older ones have been doing quite well on errand outings lately. And, at this point, the baby can do nothing to really make it difficult to have her along. (Ok, she could cry and scream, but overall, she doesn’t. ) I have had a few happy moments lately thinking about how pleasant it is not to fret about taking them along, so I thought I would highlight their good behavior here on my blog.
