I have learned a few things in these three months since having a second child. One of the most important lessons I learned is that it is not easy to get out of the house with two kids, especially when one is exclusively breastfed. I didn’t get to exclusively breastfeed Sebastian because I did not produce enough, so getting out of the house was as easy as setting up a bottle and container of formula to shake and serve when he was hungry. Now, in order to avoid an infant meltdown, I have to feed before I leave the house which adds a significant amount of time to my prep time. So beyond getting the kids dressed and making sure I have everything humanely possible to make sure we’re ok when we’re out in the world, I also have to worry about feeding a baby before venturing out. It’s very time-consuming, and with all the other errands I have to deal with, if it’s not something essential, I would rather not deal with the whole process. And now with Halloween around the corner, I have a ton of Halloween shopping to do. I have costumes and candy to purchase, decorations to make and supplies to purchase. This is where Jet.com comes to my rescue.
With Halloween around the corner, I need to get supplies and I am pretty bad about getting to the stores in time. I sometimes wait until the very last minute, because as I mentioned above, getting out of the house with kids is not an easy thing and by the time I actually make it to the stores they are usually out of things like the good candy that I like; candy that I will eat when Halloween is over so I may as well get stuff I like, right?!
Costumes are another problem. Finding a good costume for the kids at the stores is not an easy thing. Having to fight the crowds to find that perfect costume for a toddler and an infant, if you can find anything at all because oftentimes the stores are such a disaster from people picking through the costumes and moving them all over the store that you can’t find anything or if you do, you can’t find the right size. Why deal with all that when you can browse costumes online at Jet.com and find the perfect costume in the right size without having to fight the crowds while making sure your kids are safe?
I usually like to decorate the house too for the holidays, something I haven’t done yet because I’m a horrible procrastinator and I have a few things I would like to pick up for the decorations. Jet.com has great decorations available as well. Really, they’re like a one-stop shop for everything I would need for the Fall season and I’m putting my list together now so I can get my items in time for Halloween.
I honestly don’t know how my mother did it. I don’t know how families did their purchases before the internet because I get anxiety just thinking about going out during busy holiday seasons. Shopping online has saved many holidays in this house.
