Prepping For October

You know that your child is bored when you leave the room for five minutes, JUST TO PEE, and you come back and find this:


I have been T.P.'ed by my daughter. Well, it's not actually toilet paper, it's a roll and a half of calculator tape. She decorated my computer chair for one of two reasons;

1. She is preparing for the upcoming Halloween festivities next month and wants to make sure that her Mischief Night is well practiced for....or....

2. I was on the computer a little too long and she's not having it.


In all fairness to R., I went with reason number two and decided we needed to get out of the house for a while. The boys were both in school so I asked her if she wanted to go to the Dollar Tree to get items for her birthday party. She'll be 4 on October 20th and we are going to have a Dress-Up Tea Party. Three little friends are coming and are allowed to bring a guest (i.e. Mr. Teddy Bear or Suzzy Poops A Lot). I plan on having cut-out sandwiches, tea a.k.a. apple juice, cookies, etc. The moms and I are going to do make-overs and nails. It is going to be so much fun.

Now, I love the Dollar Tree, not only have I been able to torment my kids with this fine establishment, but I can get stuff for.only.a.DOLLAR! You can't beat that, can ya? We dug through everything and this is the loot we are giving to each girl at the party:


There is a furry boa, a furry purse, a Tinkerbell comb and mirror, bracelets, a necklace, lip gloss, nail jewels, bath soap shaped like candy, a ring pop, and a candy necklace and ring.

R. was so adorable picking out all of the favors. She would grab four of everything and say, "Oh, my friends will LOVE these!" and she would fill the cart with her armfuls of stuff. Stuff I had to put back on the shelves when she wasn't looking. Thank goodness three year olds don't have long attention spans.

At one point I was looking at something and I hear her say, "Oh these would be perfect!" I see her throw four small, pink, rectangular packages in the cart.


I'm thinkin' they've got a few years to go before they'll need these.

I loves me some Dollar Tree loot. Some of it actually lasts for more than 24 hours! ;)

I bought my last round of pregnancy tests there...and, for the record, they work!

Cheap thrills. I love it.

No way...

I can't believe this happened to you today.

Spud went to the loo this afternoon and told me he needed a poo. I thought 'Great! I'll carry on blog-hopping and see what happens'(bearing in mind, I'm only in the next room)

Well, I got carried away. The whole house was quiet and I didn't even realise..

I wish I'd have gone to the bathroom instead....

The room looked like a scene from some kind of prison cell .... erm... dispute or something...

remind me to escort the fella to the bathroom untill he leaves home!

Sounds like fun! The dollar tree saved my life...really. Back when I was flying from Alabama to Germany about every 4 months with 2 children under the age of 3. I bought them stuff I would NEVER give them at home-play-do, silly putty, WHAT EVER it took.
