First of all, you need to understand some things about me.
1. I don't pay full price. On anything.
2. I don't like to spend money on kiddos clothing.
3. I'd MUCH rather make Lil Chick a dress instead of spending $$ on one.
So, now that you know those few tidbits, I can continue.
OK, so this Mama had a major "I'm overwhelmed and underappreciated" freak out moment Sunday night...which was promtply addressed and rectified with a Mama only shopping trip Monday afternoon and evening.
It was GLORIOUS! Not to just push a shopping cart without being kicked in the stomach by a 4 yr old but to not have to keep track of two littles. Muchly rejuvinating!
Anywho, so I'm a shoppin and I see this adorable dress at Old Navy that would look superduper cute on Lil Chick:
Of course, the first thing I thought was, "hey, I could make something JUST like this with my extra pink tulle and her tshirt I have at home" but I decided to just go ahead and splurge.
It was full price.
There were NO coupons.
I bought it anyways. I was SO excited!
And sure enough, it looked ADORABLE on her! She twirled and smiled saying, "I pretty I pretty!" (seriously, WHERE do these little girls learn this stuff? I sure didn't teach her to do that)
And it stayed cute the entire 15 hours we owned it.
This is what it looks like now:
Every single arrow points to a splotch of dried on nail polish in hues of dark blue, red and pink. I didn't even bother pointing out all the clear nail polish. It was EVERYWHERE....believe me, the entire bottle was used up.
Oh yes, they didn't just ruin a brand new dress, they also did this:
(sorry for the blurryness....that woman never sits still)
(Looks awash in guilt, huh? Completely unrepentant.)
What you can't see is that Lil Chick is wearing FOUNDATION. Oh yes, my two year old is wearing a full layer of base makeup. Apparently Bubbalu has watched me get ready a few too many times. He's taking notes and practicing on Lil Chick.
I was less than gentle as I scrubbed the polish off with remover....and then had to quickly do a full body shower scrubdown to get the polish remover off their delicate skin.
Whattya know, we only had lukewarm coldish water today! ;)
They are BOTH currently napping...it's a first of Febuary miracle!
What ran through my mind not three hours ago, "huh, I haven't blogged in awhile, what the world am I going to write about???"
