Good Times at Target

In case you were wondering, Summer vacation has been a huge success so far. And by huge success I mean that no members of our family have made the evening news for strangling any other members of our family.

Expectations: exceeded.

We've even gone out in public together, such as yet another memorable trip to Target yesterday morning. Target is like heroin for moms. After every trip I swear I'm going to cut back, or maybe even quit cold turkey. But I just keep going back to it, over and over. With the kids even. That's how powerful it is.

In the middle of this week's fix, in the girl's department, Mia made this comment: "Mom look at this belt! Oh wait, it's Hannah Montana. I'm definitely not in to her."

I have seriously never been so proud.

And that's when Sam came around the corner with a bra on his head.

Yes, so proud.

Then there was a little conversation we had this evening when Sam was having a hard time understanding why he has to wait until he's an adult to buy a real boat with his own money. "But that will take too much longer," he said. "I need to get a boat tonight... Is Target still open?"

He's like a crack-baby. I'm telling you, I've got to cut back. For the kid's sake.

And speaking of cutting back, I'm going to be taking a little blog break for a while. Come now, no tears. I've posted something like 3 times in the last 2 months-- let's not pretend we didn't all see this coming. Don't worry, I'll be back before you know it and we'll all go back to being best blogging buddies. I promise.

Thanks for coming last night.

Why the blog break? You'll have to tell me tomorrow.

Well then I am glad I got my last fix of your blog before the break. You always crack me up...you know just how to express what I am feeling. No one has killed each other...I call that a successfull day.

We've already missed your formerly frequent blogging; gee, with 3 kids between the ages of 1 and 6 all home all the time for the summer, how come you don't have time to keep us entertained? Bummer.

FWIW, I went to Target today and began shopping for school supplies.

Donna - You're hilarious :). I haven't read anyone's blog in forever - but I am in definite need of some inspiration for my own. Reading yours has inspired me to get back on the wagon :) (I hope sooner than later). Have a great day. -Shellie
