P - Post Duck Duck Goose

Wow I am sooooo exhuasted!
I was up late (*cough* 3am *cough*), and Gabriel woke us up early at 7:30 am...for a grand total of 4 1/2 hours sleep.
I took William to school stopped by Starbucks and got myself a Venti Cafe Latte, a DDG tradition for me, and made it to DDG by 10:45, 15 minutes before the doors opened. The wait was short, esp since I got to meet up with a mom I worked DDG shifts with last year and we were able to catch up a bit.

I finally made it inside, and went strait for strollers and car seats, I didn't find a Gracco Nautilus but I found a double jogging stroller!

I was a bit disappointed at the CD selection, I mean it was great for anyone needing smalls or mediums but NO larges. I did find a swim diaper for Michael though.
