So I went to Target tonight to buy a few ornaments to replace the ones which got smashed which of course were all my favorites including the Vera Bradley glass painted one and two of the manger scenes. And the ornaments at Target were all awful. I mean, I love Kermit and Animal as much as the next person, and maybe more, but no way will a hot pink Animal ornament go on my lovely cranberry and gold tree.
And frankly, that doesn't even look like Animal. It's some sort of evil pink Grover in a Santa hat. It's all wrong. And believe me when I say this is the best of what was there. So tomorrow I'm going to Michaels to see if they can help. And sometime this week I will make it out to World Market to replace the ones I got from there.
So then we came home and Child 2 broke out in hives again. I know! This is the child that is supposed to not be a problem and there she is breaking out in hives all over her face. So I made her wash her pillow and she is starting a journal about what she ate and where she went when she breaks out because this is the third time in about a month. Speaking of Child 2 still, and how she is not supposed to be difficult, she is still obviously a child because I told her to make a list of things we needed at the grocery store and this is what was on it when I got to the store.
- Chocolate chip mint ice-cream
- caramel sauce
- gluten free cereal
- rice pudding
