Shocking Realization

One nice thing about where I live (Can you tell I am homesick for America, and hence, making a concerted effort to continue to list all the good things about being here?), is that I can send Firstborn to walk alone to the grocery store for me, about a 10 minute walk from our house. I sent her with a list of 3 things: cucumbers, tomatoes, and diapers. We are steadily eating up all the food in our house, and I am not buying more before we leave. However, we have nothing green or healthy. So I thought a nice Turkish salad would be nice tonight. I also noted we will not make it to Nashville without more diapers.

I did send my phone in case of an emergency. The phone rang, and she said, "Mom!!!! Did you know diapers are 23 lira?!" Yes, I did know. 5 expensive bottoms, I've had.

oh i miss that! there is a convenience store at the end of our street that we have sent the kids to but only if erica was able to go. they don't have fresh produce though. i miss the freedom the kids had the most. i must admit that i am loving that they can play outside in a place where i don't have to worry about dogs, trash, or speeding vehicles. now fire ants...that's another story!
