Boo #1: remember all the mocking shovelling i did when the husband was having wrist issues? well, it seems that karma and i are in a fight right now…because guess who might have a sprained or broken wrist?? oh, yeah, it’s true. i will spare you the photographic evidence because it sure ain’t pretty. but what i’d initially thought was carpal tunnel from my new laptop…is now something much bigger…and swollen. to 3 times it’s normal size. (hi, google searches. welcome) and hurts like a motherfucker.

Yay #1:

i love me a good bargain. and old navy? you are officially my new best friend. that would be SEVEN shirts for $25. curses to you, Gymboree and other like you. I don’t need your stinkin’ gymbucks. not when i can buy seven shirts for my girls for $25.

(not pictured: a receipt from Hollister…where you would see 12 shirts purchased for $120. ALL FOR ME. i’m not keeping all of them, since for. the. very. first. time. my boobs are TOO big for something!!!!!!… is my favorite one! love love love. perfect for my trip!)

Boo #2: friday night, 10:30 pm. a little girl, aged 6 and 11/12 decides to take it upon hersef to purge her room of all her “little girl things” and leave them in the hallway and in her brother’s room

she removed EVERYTHING. i don’t even know how she even physically got all the way up to the top shelf…i mean, she’s a midget.

(that dresser used to be filled with her vintage cabbage patch kids…not the ones that look like aliens on meth…*shudders*…the good, old school ones:

Yay #2: a little girl, aged 2, gets her first haircut (even though her dad AND mom can’t seem to get one decent shot of it..it’s CUTE, i swear!)

before: Hello, my hair is psycho!

after: hello, i am channeling Carol Brady…but at least my hair isn’t in my eyes anymore and i look a lot less like Doc Emmett Brown

  1. Holy cow…I hope your wrists feels better soon!

    Cute family! I love the pictures.

  2. I need closure! Did Emily’s room stay “big girl” or did she revert back?

    And, I’ll take your word for it re: Bella’s hair. (I’m a guy… it looks pretty much the same to me.)

  5. What did you do to your wrist? How did you hurt it? Old Navy’s prices are amazing…I recently picked up some turtlenecks for $0.99.

  6. Now I need to go to Old Navy!
    I wish my son would take some initiative to clean his room. It’s so full of stuff.

  7. I think I may have to add Old Navy to the list today – I swear by their kids clothes and always feel raped at Gymboree – even with Gymbucks!

    I have been cutting my sons hair since he was 3 months old (the kids hair grows too fast) but I am going to have to get him a real cut soon, before other kids start making fun of him ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. She will despise you for cutting her hair! See my recent post re: pixie cuts!

    Save that picture of her room…you will look at it longingly when she is 14.

  15. What on earth did you wind up doing with all of her little girl things? And why on earth did she think it was time to clear them out?

    If Sophie were to do this it might give me a seizure.

  18. Oh, you lucky woman of extremely good taste. I’ve been salivating over that Land of Nod personalized artwork for, like, two years. Heh. I noticed it right away– like a guy zoning in on the plasma TV in a picture. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  20. Of note – sprains apparantly hurt more than breaks. I’ve done both to wrists/fingers and I can affirm this. So, here’s hoping your insane pain means something good. (The bad news is apparantly sprains take longer to heal as well.)

  21. Do you have any idea what brought on the purging of childish things? Seems like a seminal moment that doesn’t just happen all by itself.

    Shoving it all just outside the door but not into the trash is funny, though.

  22. I heart Old Navy’s kids stufff. Their $1.99 t-shirt sales, and $3.99 shorts… THEY ARE LITERALLY PAYING ME TO TAKE THEIR CLOTHES. Gymboree can kiss the fattest part of my ass.
