Mission: Successful!

I've decided I have 2 choices for my new life 1) Stay home; and be happy staying home or 2) Learn how to go places with 4 kids.
I just can't stay home. I don't have it in me, so I've opted for choice #2.
A few days ago I had a successful trip to Costco with all of them, so I thought I was ready for something a little more challenging...the zoo!
So I loaded up my herd (I copied your phrase Amy) and we headed out. It was a beautiful day for the zoo and there weren't to too many people, so it was great. But I must say, the reason this day was such a success, was because of Bella. She was such a great helper. She pushed Claire in the stroller and was very obedient. I was so proud of her!










Now with 2 outings under my belt, I think I'm slowly learning how to be a parent of 4!

You are amazing!! I wouldn't have ventured out with 4 so soon for sure! I'm TOTALLY a homebody after having a baby. GREAT JOB!!! It looks like Bella & Claire had a great time & I bet it was SOO nice to be out!

Wow. Way to make me look bad. I rarely take all three of mine anywhere. Was it really just you and the kids? You're awesome.
ps- I have some formula for you. Just some small sample ones. I'll bring them by sometime soon.

you're brave. nice to have a little helper though, i'm sure. i was 7 before my next little sibling came with 4 more after that. i was practically a slave! not really, though

I'm so proud of you. I wished so much that I could have gone. Someday, I'll have a little more freedom. You're raising strong, independent girls teaching Bella to push the stroller by herself.

nice job Amy! i'm working on getting just two out the door, not to mention four. i don't blame you for going out, staying in makes for crazy moms, i have the experience to prove it :)

On Sunday when they said you had done this I thought what a super human mom you are! (either that or crazy). Keep up the super mom bit! You are awesome and such a sweet friend!

You ARE superhuman! And daring! I am fearful with having 2 kids, let alone 4 (not to mention a set of twins!) I am inpired now. :)

I think it's more that I'm crazy not super human mom.
