Today is Alpabe-Thursday over at Jenny Matlock's. If you haven't visited her before, you MUST! She is HI-larious! I enjoy reading her posts, they consistently put a smile on my face. Most days though, I am laughing out loud!
So today, the letter is "J".
Yesterday, Big Mama, (that's what I call myself to my kids. I'm not really big, but I think it makes me sound important. ha ha!) is walking on into Target. I've been hearing all of the hype about the Liberty of London line and had to see what the hullabaloo was all about. I had no expectation of being able to find anything good since the line came out almost 2 weeks ago and everyone out in bloggy land said their stores were just about sold out of everything LoL. First I checked out the women's dresses. They had full size runs of just about all of the women's things, except swimsuits. Well, we all know which swimsuit I'll be wearing this summer, God willing. So I tried on a couple of dresses that I thought would be good for Easter Sunday. That was not successful. One made me look like a house, the other I just wasn't crazy about.
So, I moved along to the kid's section. Each Easter I try to put something a little bit useful, but fun, in my girls' Easter baskets. I've put Crocs in them before and last year they got new swimsuits. There is usually PLENTY of candy in the little eggs that they hunt. In November, I got myself a pair of zebra print rainboots. I look forward to rainy days just so that I can wear them. Each time I do, my big girl goes into whine mode. "I wish I had some rain boots, wah wah wah" . To which I reply, "Too bad kid, Big Mama never gets anything new. Get over it." Ok, maybe I'm not quite that short with her, but the kid does have more clothes than I do. So back to Target. I get an idea. Maybe I should put some rain boots in the baskets this year. Hmmm. I go over to check them out and low and behold, I find these.

Big Mama shoots...she scores!
They only come in big girl sizes, not toddler. So I check out the toddler sizes and find these.
