It's not very often that I walk out of WalMart with a warm and happy feeling. But, yesterday was different. Kate and Brynn were at Liberty Girls (aka homeschool club.) Adrie was the only one that wanted to go but too bad 3 yr. olds aren't allowed. I thought about begging...I ended up taking her and baby to Walmart. We were just going in to pick up some pictures and some garam masala so I could make cc's rikki tikki tembo chicken dish. They didn't have it so I made my way to the photo section when I got swept into the children's clothing section (the store is laid out just so that will happen). Anyway, there in the girls section I found...tada...$3 dollar outfits--that didn't even look like they were only $3 dollar outfits...see? cute huh. I think I was able to get Kate a complete wardrobe for next summer.

Meanwhile, Adrie out of the shopping cart is pushing baby in the shopping cart and they are out of sight. I panicked imagining where a 3 yr old and shopping cart could have ended up?---in the boys section. Yikes. I put Adrie IN the cart so I could safely get back to browsing. She, in her clear diction, yells out from the top of the cart, "Mom did you sleep in that shirt?" When I mumbled a yes she started loudly taunting, "YOU'RE IN YOUR P.J.'S, YOU'RE IN YOUR P.J.'S"--definitely time to go! Even after, that Adrie ended up with her own $3 dollar outfit and the messiest frosted chocolate donut in the case. So we left that store with a pretty good feeling overall and darn it I didn't even use the handicap sticker.

Shopping seems to have this effect on all males.

ah, the joys of children and their honesty...
way to find the good deals - I keep thinking I'm being good by not looking, but now H is growing out of clothes and there's nothing to be found!

I am always so happy to find such deals. It's been a little while, though. And if you're looking, don't plan on finding! The way of the shop.

Was it your Cambodia shirt?

HA! Yes it was the Cambodia shirt--so versatile!

Funny. Doesn't Adrie know it's more efficient to just sleep in your clothes? Saves a lot of time in the mornings....
Last time I wandered into the clothing section at WalMart Ethan broke a Dora umbrella and knocked over a rack of women's underwear. We don't 'wander' anymore.

I've been wearing my Cambodia shirt all day long... I guess now I have permission to sleep in it. I'm glad it's the softest shirt I own, so cozy!
