Thursday already. My oh my.
I fear Ella has developed an unhealthy fear of cavities. We let her go with Eli when he got the last of his cavities filled, to "help him be brave" and I think it rather traumatized her. She brushes her teeth numerous times a day trying to rid any "sugar bugs" that might be considering taking up residence in her mouth. I can't decided if this is a good or bad thing.
I went to Harris Teeter with all three littles last night to take advantage of a few of their super double deals. Mostly for the things I didn't want to miss...you know, important things like ice cream, coffee creamer, and french toast. I paid less than $9 for everything pictured. Booyah. I was beginning to think I should remove the "frugality" part from my tagline...I have been sadly sadly sadly slacking in the couponing department. Sadly.
Have you watched that extreme couponing show? I watched it for the first time last week and oh.my.goodness. some people are just crazy. Really. Why does a single family need 300 tubes of toothpaste stockpiled? Or two extra storage garages just to hold stockpiled stuff? I'm all for saving money and being a good steward of our resources...but really people. Get some perspective.
Speaking of getting a grip. My children (namely Ella) are allowed to set a cup of water out on the counter at night for the off chance they get thirsty in the middle of the night. I think it may be getting out of hand...
I got to keep good pal Tasha's kids this week. It really is quite amazing how good all six of our kiddo's (ages 6 and younger) get along. We even managed to get in two days of school...if I may pat myself on the back.
Sadly, I can't say the same effort went into laundry and I fear I may never get caught up. But having clean underwear is highly over rated anyways.
Jesus follower. After that I'm happily married, mom to four, homeschooler, traveler, photographer, and never one to turn down a good cup of coffee.
