*warning* long post- feel free to leave now.
I’m feeling much much better- thanks for all the nice comments and emails. Wal got back late on Friday night, actually it was after midnight so it was early Saturday morning. I hightailed it out of the house around 9:30 the next morning. There was a NCT nearly new sale going on and mama needed to get her bargain on! I found a Bumbo for £5 ! Can you believe it?!?!! It wasn’t for me, I already have one that I paid full price for. This was for a friend who mentioned she was looking for one. Knowing how quickly it would be snatched up I got it for her before anyone else got their grubby little mitts on it. I also picked up a baby doll, doll bed, about a gazillion books,some videos, a bed guard, a potty, a step stool and clothes all this for the grand total of £37.
I will admit that the baby doll kinda freaks us out a bit. It’s a Baby Annabell doll and it moves it head from side to side, sucks and coos (I didn’t know it did all this- I thought to myself, damn this thing is heavy. I found out later why). Wal and I both agreed that it was a bit too Chuckie for our tastes so off to the loft it will go to live. I think that it’s a bit too advanced for Squidge. She’ll only end up breaking it. I retails for about £40 (according to Toys-r-Us)- I picked it up for £4. Have I mentioned how much I ? Nearly new sales? I’m thinking about sending my sister some money so she can buy a cheapo cheapie doll in the US. Just a plain old fashioned no batteries needed doll. I don’t want it to eat, or shit or close/open it’s eyes. I just want it to sit there like a lump. She’s sending me a package so I might just take that opportunity. So Sherry if you read this I’m sending you an email!!
Later that day we had our Aquababies photo-shoot. It was sooooooooo sooooo much fun. Squidge is good in the water so it’s usually just a good time playing with her. We took 6 shots- 2 of Squidge alone, 2 with all of us and 1 w/ each of us- does that add up to 6?? It was only thirty minutes and we were in the pool with about 5 other families. Some of the kids handled it better than others. I did feel bad for one mum. Her kid was freaking out. I don’t think she got one good photo. It’s a bit of a bummer because you pay and if all the shots look like crap -ohh well, tough cookies. I’m a little worried about the photo of me in a swimsuit- not something I want to see. It was off to Borders Books after that. Squidge was tired, refused to sleep and got really cranky so we didn’t stay there long.
On Sunday I went back to Borders by.my.self. It was WONDERFUL! I just browsed and had a latte and it was peaceful. Mamma’s all rested and ready to deal w/ the Whirlwind called Squidge for another week.
On Friday C (Squidge’s best-est friend) was wearing the cutest stripy outfit. I was a bit jealous cuz she’s the cutest thing ever and well since I want my kid to be the custes thing ever too I went out and bought a denim skirt. Squidge has loads of tights but she had out grown her skirts. Today she was all cute and stripy- behold a stripey Squidge…
Doesn’t she look sooo serious? This was her immediately after I took the photo…
I think she was telling me off for taking her photo.
Another shameless plug- C’s mummy now has a blog. I’m slowly turning all my friends into bloggers…mmwaaa aaah aaah! Go show them some love over @ 2 kids and 5 minis
