I need to start by thanking you all for the wonderful gardening advice you’ve been giving us these past few days! There were some great ideas that we can’t wait to try, & we really appreciate all your insight.
Sadly, we had a bit of a garden tragedy last night. Our little baby watermelon–one of our proudest garden accomplishments thus far–met its end in an ill-fated lawnmower incident.
May you rest in peace, little guy, rest in peace.
Today’s shopping trip was quick and easy, mostly because the girls were oddly mellow, but also because I didn’t have several of the coupons on this week’s matchup list. No worries, I still managed to come away with plenty of goodies, including a pack of Pull-Ups AND a pack of swim diapers!
I am so looking forward to the day when finding a great price on diapers is no longer a concern. Trouble is totally intrigued by the potty and will spend hours sitting on it watching “Elmo’s Potty Time” over and over again, but we are still waiting for her first big pee-pee triumph.
But as riveting as I’m sure it must be, you’re not here for potty talk. So without further ado, here is what I got:
