Peter is getting to be a bit stubborn lately. He gets these ideas in his head and nothing we say can dissuade him. Yesterday the kids went to the basement to look for some Kraft Dinner and they didn’t find any so he dragged a boxed waffle maker upstairs and declared he was having waffles for lunch.
M: Peter – I’m sorry but I’m not making waffles for lunch.
P: I’ll make them myself! How do you get this out?! (He struggles to open the box and finally succeeds)
P: *examines the waffle maker* Mom! how do you get the waffles in?
M: Peter, how was your visit to the dentis?
M: Did she say you had nice teeth?
P: Yesno. She said I had BEAUTIFUL teeth!
C: Can we have a bath tonight
M: Sorry sweety. It’s too late tonight. Besides, your grandma told me that you guys had a bath at her place this morning.
C: But that bath was for YESTERDAY!
Me: I really need your co-operation tonight because I have to get the house clean and dad is working so I’ll be doing everything myself. I can’t come home tomorrow at lunch because I’m going out with a friend.
C: HEY! how come you get to go out and I have to stay at boring school! And Peter has to stay at boring daycare!
Me: Peter, is daycare boring?
Me: So you are telling me you are bored all day, every day when you are at daycare?
Peter: Yes. And I’m allergic to daycare.
I love fall. One of the things I love most about fall is wearing and layering cozy sweaters. I can be very particular about my sweaters so for quite some time now I have been looking for the perfect oversize cream sweater.
Don’ t get me wrong – I found lots of shops online that carried them but I didn’t want to spend a fortune and it had to ship to Canada. I finally found something great but when I went to the checkout I discovered that they were going to charge me $25 for shipping. I don’t think so!
Finally after another futile search I found just what I was looking for. “Oh hey – I remember Topshop being mentioned in the Shopaholic novels! Wait, its from the UK though…. Shipping will probably be crazy and it will take forever to get here right?” (I said this all in my head – not out-loud if you were wondering…) Wrong! First off the price was very reasonable (it happened to be on sale but even regular price was less than a good sweater here – and let me tell you there is nothing wrong with the quality). And the shipping was only $7. $7! Can you believe that ? To top it off, the sweater was in my hands (it was +20 the day I picked it up so I didn’t put it on)in less than a week! I can’t even get products shipped in Canada that quickly! If you spend over 100 pounds (cant find the symbol on my keyboard :P) they will ship it to you for free – even internationally!
From now on I think Topshop is going to be one of the first, if not the first site I check for my fashion needs.
*Peter comes rushing through the doors to the back yard*
ME: Peter – why did you come in the house? I thought you wanted to play outside.
P: I had to come in. There was a red dragonfly and it was going to kill me!
P: I wish I could feed a horse.
Me: What do horses eat?
P: Milk. And grain!
Me: Oh? what kind of grain?
P: Blue grain. But only blue horses eat blue grain. I have a blue horse.
