This morning the kids had Spring Break Camp. It was a blessing because I was able to get some errands done without littles in tow. I was able to browse without worrying about what Captain Chaos was dismnatling.
First stop – Hobby Lobby. I got some stuff for the kids Easter baskets and a mat board to play with my mat cutter. I also got a magnet board to use with my cross-stitch. The current stocking pattern is getting progressivly harder to follow.
Next stop – Whole Foods. I needed to find some Extra Virgin Coconut oil. MOTS and CC both have eczema. CC’s is (so far) much milder than MOTS is, but both get itchy. I read online that some have been able to control their eczema with coconut oil, so we determined to give it a go. It seems a better alternative to a lifetime of cortico-steroid use.
Last stop – State Inspection. So glad I was able to get this one done without kids in tow. They were off having fun and I was trapped in a tiny waiting room watching divorce court on the tiny TV. Good times. The Taco passed with flying colors and we are good to go for another year.
I had worried about CC crying when I dropped him off, but he went in like a champ! Happy to be there and with instant friends. Then when I arrived to pick him up he told me “NO! GO AWAY!” and burst into tears. He wanted to stay and play. <sigh> Oh well, at least he didn’t cry the whole time I was gone!
