Instafriday - No Car Seat Edition

Today I'm helping my sister out with a little babysitting action for her almost 3-year-old.
It's really nice to get the kiddos together for a few reasons, 
the first being that they get along beautifully and make each other laugh,
and the second being that it gives me some time to do whatever the heck I feel like doing because they are distracting each other.

This morning I was tired as a slug.
I don't know what it was. Yesterday I felt dead with exhaustion, so I figured today I would be perky as all perk, but low and behold, I was not.
So somewhere around 9:30 I thought to myself,
Woohooo! It's almost coffee time!
Such is when I heave Carter into the car and we take a little trip down to McDonald's for my 
It's a glorious event, executed daily.
And then I realized something terrible.
No! No! No! No!
I had forgotten to ask my sister for her car seat!
No car seat for my niece = dare I even say it? No drive to McDonald's.
{hee-haw, hee-haw, hee-haw}
{deep breaths}
How could I have been so thoughtless?!
What to do, what to do?!

My heart was racing, my eyes were darting all crazy-like just from thinking about what A FULL DAY would be like without my glorious coffee.
Would this mean that I would have to actually brew my own pot?

And then a thought occurred to me.
What if I just walked down there and got the kiddos a Big Breakfast so I can enjoy my McCafe and everybody will be happy?
Was that nuts?
I didn't care! To hell with the critics!
Kids! Where are your shoes?! We are going BYE-BYE!

And that's what we did.
I strapped Carter to his stroller and held Tessa's hand the whole way down there.
.....After, of course, a quick tackle resulting in tears and screams.

But after that, we were on track!
Ahh, peace.

It actually turned out to be quite an enjoyable walk......

.....Until I figured out that all my picture taking had forced us to miss breakfast.
{I was irrationally angry about this during the entire meal. I mean, who wants to eat regular McDonald's food at 10:30 am? I walked in at exactly 10:30, McDonald's staff! Couldn't they have cut me a break!}

But it was all good because the kiddos had a great time playing on that contraption which kind of gives me the creeps.

Anyway, last but certainly not least........
I got to enjoy my MEDIUM McCafe.
{I have been ordering smalls in consideration of Babe #2, but today I felt that I deserved to bump it up.}

So it all worked out, after all.
Now those youngins are asleep, and I'm still enjoying my frothy goodness.

I'll be linking up here!
