Finding my Mojo

... I've been looking for it everywhere! I think I found it. It appears it slipped down under the cushions on the lounge. I've dusted it off. Still doesn't fit, quite like it used to... I just need to pull myself into shape!

For the first time in about 2 weeks, my tummy did a "flitter flutter" as I thought, seeing our son/daughter in 2 weeks COULD be a realisation.

I even ordered Mini's Christmas gift! Thanks to this lady... for tempting me with such devine toys!!! I've ordered 4 Melissa & Doug food sets - they look absolutely amazing. I'm so "over" plastic toys. Particularly "educational" toys!!! I spent a fortune on "educational" things for Miss M, when she was a baby... she preferred an empty C0ke bottle with a bit of dry rice in it!!! Figures! The M&D sets weren't cheap! First I went to Am@z0n. Cheap sets (US$15) but the post was a killer, at US$67!!! Then add about 30%, to equate it to the AUS$. See. Not cheap. I did, however, manage to find them on our Aussie eb^y, the sets were $34 (ooo-ahh) but I only had to pay $10 to get them all posted! (and thats all in AUS$! so deduct 30% to get the US$) Cool!!! I've ordered the "Food cutting", "Pizza", "birthday cake" and "sushi". I wanted the sandwich one... but she didn't have that one :( Maybe I'll need to suck it up next Christmas, and go with Am@z0n?!! If your kids have any of these sets... leave a comment on what you think!

I even looked at RQ. Nothing going on... but I succumbed, and looked!

Oooo. Can I bear more disappointment?

Probably.

We have the sandwich one and the food cutting one. Both extremely popular items in our house, particularly the wooden knives, which the girls consider to be even better than fancy dressup shoes.

Maybe a tag will help! (Sorry. Don't hate me. But you HAVE been tagged.)

We have a lot of Melissa and Doug stuff, including the Pizza which is a huge hit with T, and her visiting little friends. Unfortunately I always seems to find one of the "toppings" which come in the form of a circle in the oddest places much later on.

Why is it that so often after I read your site I need to go locate my credit card?! It's alright, I won't tell Jeff that it's YOUR fault! =)

Briana is getting the sushi set from Santa this year! :)

Glad you got your mojo back!

The cutting food set was what my 3 yr old nephew sat on the floor and played contentedly with for over an hour at Maddy's bday party. I've never seen him sit still that long. Ever!

PS. You can guess what auntie is getting him for Christmas, right? LOL!
