So….when I was a DINK (double income no kids), I swore I would NEVER
buy clothes for MY kids that had Disney characters or cartoons or
anything like that on them! And I’d most certainly never shop Wal-
Mart for kids clothes when there are so many BETTER options like
GapKids, Gymboree, Macy’s…..you get my drift…..NEVER SAY NEVER!
Ella girl will be 3 on November 28th…..and I’m being reminded
several times a day by the party girl! Ella LOVES Ariel and all
things Disney princess and I know nothing would make her heart soar
more than if she were to open up long-sleeved Ariel pjs or a new t-
shirt for her bday. Our current Ariel nightgown is literally hanging
by a few threads, but no matter the time of day, she peels off her
clothes and puts it on the minute it pops out of the dryer. So today,
I found myself holding my breath while I quickly, yet carefully,
looked through every rack of pajamas and t-shirts at Wal-Mart to try
to find either an Ariel t-shirt or nightgown or pj’s for my precious
little three year old. I think I even started praying aloud…..”God
please have her size, please Lord! She NEEDS these!” Well, today
wasn’t my day- I found Ariel pj’s in size 18 months and a t-shirt in
5T, but nothing in 3T…..grandmothers, be on alert!!!
My how things change. I’m thankful for Wal-Mart and cheap cartoon
clothes….because there’s nothing my preschooler likes better and
that just makes momma smile!
there for 3 and a half hours and the time flew because we were
constantly busy! Summary of activities:
out of her hands, knocked her over and went to town on it- we tried to
tear it away while Ella’s eyes were as big as saucers……I got all of
it on video.
-Trip to the hand washing station.
chase them around. Then picked up a small pellet- “Mommy, what
is dis?” Put it down Ella- that’s poo poo.
-Another trip to the hand washing station. (see comment about pellets)
blew it around. Ella exclaimed, “Our picnic is ruined!”
-Shook sand out of every piece of clothing on Ella.
and a seat.” Ella is hesitant. Pappy is a cowboy and he rides
horses…..Mom sneakily places Ella on top of “Cocoa” the horse and she
instantly smiles. “I’m a big girl because I’m riding the horse!”
-Ella runs away from mom…..consequences are threatened.
as we get on the train and as we ride around we are all talking about
the things we did at the farm. I point out the sand pile and the kid
in front said, “I played on that and the kids wouldn’t share the
trucks.” Ella retorted, “Sometimes kids don’t want to share….then
they get consequences.”
and Ella turns around to tell the kids behind us, “I’m a big girl
because I ride the horse-nees!”
FUN FUN FUN! Lots of pics and video……just wished our Pappy and Daddy could have come too!
