Caitlin has discovered The Wonder Pets on Nick Jr. Although she still loves Dora, lately she prefers watching Linny, Ming-Ming, and Tuck come to the rescue of baby animals. The recent baby dinosaur episode is my least favorite. The “gag me with a spoon” part is when they chant “Pushy, pushy, pushy on the tushy, tushy, tushy” as they struggle to free the dinosaur from between two rocks. And Ming-Ming the baby duck’s inability to pronounce “R” is vewy, vewy annoying. The only cartoon bird who can get away with that is Tweety, dammit.
Am I the last person on the planet to notice the McDonald’s drive-thru sign that says they charge for extra condiments and sauces? What? I always ask for ketchup but I guess that doesn’t fall under this policy. I didn’t even get a napkin this morning with my bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit. Times must be tough for Ronald McDonald.
I took Caitlin to a consignment sale this weekend at her future elementary school. She kept saying, “This is my school mama?!” She was really excited to see her school, although we only went into the gym. I got her an adorable Children’s Place skirt and top outfit in a funky orange and navy sort of 60s design, a Dora doodle stamp pad which will come in handy on the road, and a Little Mermaid backpack (the perfect size for her Beanie Baby bears) all for $12. I love a bargain! And the sales benefit the school, so it was a win-win for everyone.
We took the girls swimming yesterday and they both smelled like sunscreen and sunshine. I love that smell.
