Clearly if I still remember it in such vivid detail I must have suffered horribly, and I really didn't want Madame Drama to have to experience such misery.
Also, I have a lot to learn about being the mother of a school-kid. Fortunately, in the nth hour, I'd impulsively picked up some little fun-sized bags of m&ms for Bean to give out with her Blues Clues Valentines, thinking, OH! she'll have a little sumpm extra to put in her friends' bags! She'll be a Valentines Party hero! But wouldn't you know every single other kid brought a little treat to give out too? Man, not only was Bean not any kind of a hero (although she's the only one who brought m&ms, the best candy on the planet, so we've got that goin' for us) she really only narrowly escaped bein' labeled The Kid with the Cheapest Schmuck of a Mom in all of Miss Brenda's 4 year-old class.
Valentine providence, I tell you. Providence.
I am totally on track to be put in the Remedial Mothering class next fall.
But I did get sumpm right this week! Check out our new Graco Ipo Twin stroller. It arrived yesterday and Bean and I had it outta the box and put together in about 20 seconds flat, and then Bean insisted she and Peabody have a little inaugural voyage in it. Around the living room and kitchen. And around. And around. And around.
Oh, Mama! I love this stroller. Great quality, handles like a dream, plenty of storage, and it's not too heavy and pushes fine with only one kid in it. If you're looking for a double for twins or for a baby and your older child, take a look at this one. I got it for about 25% off the average retail price at Amazon.com.
And with that, I gotta stroll, myself. Y'all have a great Friday!
