Okay, so BDH has taken some vacation time this week and next. He’s been working, like, STUPIDRIDICULOUS HARD lately, so it was time for time off.
We like time off. Vacations are good. And what do we do with Vacation?
We like to shop. We often have no money, in which case it’s just shopping for windows. Sometimes, we are bargain shopping, of which I am a BIG fan. Or maybe it’s just time for That Baby to wear herself out by running headlong through the mall, looking down at her feet in the manner of OHMYGODIHAVESHOESON!!1!11!!eleventy!1!!11!!! and then falling splat in the middle of a busy mall thoroughfare, or running smack bang straight into the arse of another shopper.
Anyway, yesterday was a bargain shopping kind of a day. We went to Children’s Place at the mall, where there has been a sale of late. We got Stinkerbelle some cute little sundresses with bloomers, very girly girl and perfect for hot days and very colourful in a 60s Partridge Family Bus sort of a way that I LOVE. But she also needs summer jammies, the kind where her feet and legs are free, as opposed to foot jammies, for warm nights this summer.
Now, I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but where I have been shopping there are not a lot of girl summertime jammies for the under-two set (That Baby is a long skinny kid so she’s still in 18-24 clothes). But on the rack with the sundresses, I noticed some blue rompers — the t-shirt and shorts all-in-one combos. I thought, these would make PERFECT summer jammies! And at $6 per pair, I picked up two.
So I headed to the till with a blue and purpley flowered sundress, and two blue striped rompers. And a blue plaid hat that would match all of them.
The rompers? BOYS’ ROMPERS. With the tag “Handsome and Huggable” on them. I didn’t notice the tag until just now, as I was tidying up and putting some things away.
Good thing That Baby can’t read. Talk about confusion.
And so this morning, we thought it might be a good idea to get Stinkerbelle out and running around a bit again. Shopping tires her out, so she naps and sleeps well. So we got her up and fed and dressed in the cutest little yellow frock with bows on it, with yellow and pink flowery yoga pants on underneath, and bright pink shoes.
And we took her to Home Depot, where she ran happily amok among the lumber aisles, laminate flooring and power tools.
Good thing we’re putting lots of money away for therapy.
