While I was distracted on the phone yesterday, Ruthie put on her Christmas socks, tennis shoes, Thomas’ dinosaur costume (which is way too short), and her lady bug rain coat to go out and play in the snow. I give her a lot of leeway when it comes to dressing herself, but I drew the line here.
This morning, realizing that although all the schools are closed and time has stopped due to one inch of snow, Value Village thrift store employees defied this latest ‘act of God’ by showing up to work and smiling at me as I dropped in to pillage for snow gear. Proof that God still loves me despite my unkempt house lies in the fact that they had snow boots and snow suits in each of my kids’ sizes.
Boots, gloves, snow suits: $20.
Not embarrassed to be seen with children: priceless.
