Sorry, I digress... back to the Toy Sale. I bought 3 preschooler toys for the new babies and thought, I grab a Sleepsuit (onesie) for each of them, since they were 30% off! I know one of the couples is expecting a boy, but don't know the expected sex of the other two, so I just got one more boy gift and one girl gift. To cover my bases I bought Mini a double pack of the sleepsuits, and if I need to, I can use it as a gift too!!! Check it out...
How much would you expect to pay for a double pack (extra cutsie!) of sleepsuits? $20? Even $10 would be a bargain right? Well, how about $7!!! That's right folks, $7 for 2 suits!!! (sorry the pics are a little dark, it even looks like the feet on the white one are dirty... but they're not!)
Of course, this one was purchased purely for the "Ladybug" factor! And about a week ago, I picked up this funky lamp, for $11!! It wasn't really what I was looking for, but I cannot walk past a good buy!!! There is dark timber furniture in Mini's room, so I thought it'd look quite snazzy! The room is currently used for guests, and everytime someone comes to stay, I have to leave my bedside lamp and clock in the room... and it drives me bonkers not having them on MY bedside!! Problem solved.
And Mr T got the Secret Pal gift this month, as it's "For Dad" - and our Secret Pal very generously indulged us with a beautiful children's book called, "My Dad" and a book for Mr T to pick up some pointers, called "The DADS Book, For The Dad Who's Best at Everything"!!! Heres a morsel, from the book:
(Dads) Then & Now
Then: In 1900 a "happy meal" was when Father shared funny stories around the table
Now: A "happy meal" is what Dad buys at McD0nalds!
Then: In 1900, fathers said "A man's home is his castle"
Now: Fathers say "Welcome to the MoneyPit"!
Then: In 1900s Father's shook their children gently and said "Wake up, it's time for school"
Now: Kids shake their Father's violently, at 5am and shout "Wake up, it's time for football practice!"
Then: In 1900, a father smoked a pipe after dinner
Now: If he tries that he'll be sent outside with a lecture on lung cancer!
Then: In 1900, Fathers could count on teaching their children about the family business
Now: Fathers pray their kids will come home from college long enough to teach them how to use a computer!
It also has lots of cool stuff like, how to make a bow and arrow (yeah! safety plus?!!!), how to make a kite, how to avoid changing a nappy, Dads night-in - how to make a pizza, and don't forget the "Teenager Talk Dictionary"! Its quite an interesting quirky book!!! I'll leave you with a quote from Bob Phillips "Teenagers complain there is nothing to do, then stay out all night doing it!"
