Recap 12/10

1. Searching for nice clothes for a three-year-old is like looking for sunken treasure.  You know it’s out there, but it takes a bloody long time to find it with lots of hit and misses.

2. I need a better green nail polish.  One that does not need four coats to hide the white of my nails.

3. Why are kid shoes so damn expensive?

4. I think I finally have a clean house.  Frightening.  Except for the office, but I don’t count that.

5. Someone asked if I was ready for Christmas and done with my baking.  I laughed until I cried.

6. When all was said and done, I paid three times the original price of a toy that is no longer being made, but it will be worth the price when I see Tornado S’s face on Christmas.

7. Fisher-Price, WTF?  Pirates made for 3 to 5 year olds should not being loosing their arms within a year of purchase.

8. Tornado E looked at the light blue shirt and khaki pants I bought him for Christmas and declared them, “too boring.”  I should have known; last week he went to school with pirate pajama pants, red-and-white striped polo shirt, and a scarf with the Broncos and 49ers icons knitted on it as a souvenir from the London game.

9. Tornado A has gotten a sixth tooth AND started crawling.  It’s been a record week.

10. Every morning I get up and tell myself, “It’s going to be a good day, and I choose to be happy” (among other things).  I’m stubborn enough to make sure it happens.

    Eventful times. My eldest has taken to wearing superhero costumes at all times when he’s at home. He has a Batman, Superman, Spider-man, and Buzz Lightyear suit (and that’s the order he likes them in, basically). Pretty much, if he can turn a jacket, an apron, or another shirt into a cape, he’ll do it. So I sympathize with Sean’s “too boring” clothing comment. But I gotta admit, I dream about the words “fix my cape, mommy,” and I wake up about to kill somebody.

    Why ARE kids shoes so ridiculously expensive?

  2. Ink Says:

    Kids shoes are expensive because they know we have to buy them, like, every two seconds, what with the overnight growth spurts.

    Greedy corporate bastards!
