Have I mentioned my love of Dirt Cheap lately?
I feel like it's been a while since I've sung it's praises.
It's more than a store...
it's an activity.
An activity that I love.
I'm feeling especially praiseworthy
because it had been a while since I visited my most favorite store.
I'll never forget the last time I was standing in line at Dirt Cheap and
a woman asked me when I was due with baby #2.
"6 days ago."
I had been dying for someone to ask my due date and finally someone did.
She was appropriately shocked.
Too bad I didn't manage to go shopping on day 9 postdate...
The kids and I went to Dirt Cheap two days in a row this week.
It was every bit as good as I remembered.
I *might* have even purchased a few Christmas presents while we were there.
Henry knows he is guaranteed a prize at Dirt Cheap so he starts scouting out something he needs within minutes of entering the store.
He was pretty pumped up to find a Minnie Mouse keychain that I actually let him touch after a stern lecture about how he couldn't put Minnie in his mouth.
Liza didn't get the mouth lecture for her toy because it was actually brand new and
still in the unopened packaging.
Quite the miracle for Dirt Cheap.
Minnie got wet after playing outside and needed to dry off in a towel.
I would take a more flattering picture of her but she is clutched in Henry's sleeping little hands.
I've been looking online for an activity mat for Liza.
This one was significantly cheaper than the one I was looking at buying,
I love the colors and it doesn't sing or have flashing lights.
Win. Win. Win.
