I KNOW I owe you all the pirate party post. I KNOW!! I feel so guilty about that, I was just thinking about it while driving Big Kid to school.
I'll put it on the short list.
Also, there's no interesting back story on my hater. We both market to moms and that's upsetting to her. I don't consider us direct competition at all but when I introduced myself to her and told her we could possibly help each other out, she practically yelled, "OH I DON'T THINK SO. OH NOO" and turned her back on me. It was bizarre. My more direct competition is so sugary, syrupy sweet to me that I feel guilty for even existing.
Also, I've got to get pictures of the mini-freaks for you all. Big Kid has decided he desperately wants glasses because they make him look serious. So he has found some lime green plastic frames that came with a chicken little outfit and he wears them everywhere. He assures me over and over again that the other kids won't be jealous (because that's our reason for not taking toys out of the house) and then asks over and over again if I think they are jealous and then he reassures me that they don't think anything of it because they just think he can't see.
He looks like A TOTAL FREAK. The adjectives nerd, geek, dork and dweeb don't begin to cover it.
little kid is a full time cowboy. He saw a man in a cowboy hat at a country diner we go to, and later saw a nice cowboy hat at Walmart that he begged for (Peez mum, PEEZ!!) and now he wears it EVERYWHERE and drags either his stick horse or his build a bear horse along with us.
The other day he wanted in on the glasses action, but we didn't have anymore glasses, so he found some of those disguise glasses with the nose and the eyebrows but the nose is missing, so they're just black frames with eyebrows. He wore them out to breakfast with his cowboy hat and with his lime green glasses brother.
Freaking weirdos. I have pictures on my Blackberry but can't figure out how to email them anywhere. It seems like it should be easy, but I don't know.
Anyhoo, I owe you stuff. I know it. It's on the list.
