This morning I went out for the first time alone with the boys. The monthly MOPS (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) meeting was this morning and I decided that I had to give it a shot. Knowing that I'd never get myself out of the house on time if I didn't prepare ahead of time, I took a shower and packed the diaper bag last night, and planned to drop Charlie off at work in time to get to the church early so I could feed Eli before the meeting started and Owen during the meeting. All went according to plan and I even got a little down time when the mentors of MOPS took them off my hands for a little while. It was a little overwhelming in the beginning getting them in and out of the car and stroller alone, but I'm glad that I made it through - it boosted my confidence for the next time I venture out alone.
