I had a doctors appointment at 1:30 yesterday afternoon and I had to take both Gabby and Owen (Read:  DISASTER).  They were bad the entire time pretty much and I wanted to kill them by the time we left the parking lot, but anyway….

I then headed over to see Gretchen and drop off some baby stuff that I thought she might be able to use.  I ran in for 5 minutes and got my crock pot back, from her DECEMBER party.  I’m lazy, what can I say.  Then it was off to Gerrity’s in Nanticoke to get my prescription filled (Amoxicillian).  On the way back from Luzerne, Gabby happened to catch my eye doing something in the back seat.  She was pulling on the door handle.  The next thing I know, the Jeep is yelling at me that a door is open.  She managed to open the car door while the car was MOVING.  I had to pull over in Redner’s parking lot and engage the Child Protect locks on both doors in the back seat.  My jeep is stupid, because even though the doors lock after you start going over 5mph, if you try to open the door, it will unlock itself so you can get out.  This is no different in the back seat apparently, which I did not know.  I mean usually you’d think that you’d need to UNLOCK the door THEN open it.  That is not the case.  If you pull on the handle, it unlocks the door.  Convenient?  Yes.  Safe?  No. 


I didn’t think I’d have to use the Child Protect locks until Gabby and Owen were at least 5.  I thought wrong.  *Sigh*  Just when you think you have this safety proofing thing figured out, they figure out a way to outsmart you. 

Thank god we got to Gerrity’s in one piece and I got my prescription using the Drive-thru window.  Gabby and Owen were both out cold by the time we arrived home and they slept from 3pm-6pm.  Yay.  Score one for Mommy.

Today…my new washer and dryer arrives anywhere from 12-4pm.  I also have to meet with a daycare in Dallas that has openings for Gabby and Owen.  Here’s hoping it all goes well.
