suze orman’s got nothin’ on me, baby

saving money… good
don’t matter how you do it
just don’t forget wipes

I just realized why I’ve been saving so much money lately. It’s the Poop Budget.

Here’s the scene:

Pile wee one and wee-er one into the car
Arrive at Target/HEB/Old Navy/Wherever
Disentangle wee one from car seat, tell him to pretend he’s a magnet so he will stick to the side of the car (and not run in traffic)
Disentangle wee-er one from car seat, cram her chubby self into the pouch.
Carefully walk through blazing hot parking lot, find shopping cart, enter store.
THBBBBBBBTTTTTTTT
Look down at wee-er one, realize she has just pooped.

Now we have a few different options:

a) try to shop as fast as you can before wee-er one starts to freak.
b) wrangle everyone back out to the car and change her diaper, then wrangle everyone back into the store, where she will inevitably poop again.
b.2) wrangle everyone back out to the car and attempt to change her diaper, then realize you have no wipes.

b.2.a) wrangle everyone back into the store, quickly buy wipes, go back out to the car to change diaper, go back into store to shop, and know in your heart she will inevitably poop
again once you get your cart full.
b.2.b) wrangle everyone back out to the car and attempt to change her diaper, then realize you have no wipes, watch your head go supernova, then go home.

I almost always "choose" option b.2.b and boy does it save me some cash!
