Shopping with Twins

To the car, in the car,
Buckle them up
Huge, unwieldy shopping cart
Pink and purple raincoats for fall
Pinched finger {{{screaming}}}
Socks and swimsuits,
Shoes and jammies
Wet pants...oops!
Singing Row, Row Row Your Boat
and B-I-N-G-O
To the car, in the car
Buckle them up
Chocolate milk and applesauce
French fries and
Four more trips to the bathroom
Hand-holding and hugs
Giggles and kisses
To the car, in the car
Buckle them up
Into the driveway, through the door
Collapse on the couch
