True Confessions

Since it’s the holiday season and it’s all about love and honesty…I have a couple of things I need to confess.

Here’s the deal. Ella’s 2…2 year olds are complicated beings. Sometimes I will find something that I am convinced Ella will love…and she’ll hate it. Other times I’ll grab some little toy from the $1 bin at Target, and it will become her new favorite toy for months. So, what I’ve been doing is taking her to Target with me, she and I go into the toy aisle and I grab what I was thinking about getting her. She plays with it as we walk around the store and get other needed items, then as we’re about to check out I determine if she likes it enough to actually buy it. Sometimes, if I’m still unsure, we’ll bring it home and I let her play with it for a few minutes just to be sure. When I’ve decided that it is the perfect gift for Ella, I wrap it. I just hope she forgets what they were by the time we unwrap presents for Christmas.

Another confession, I let Ella have a lollypop for breakfast on Saturday…and Sunday.

Finally, when you see Ella and her hair looks a bit…um…greasy, think nothing of it. Ella’s hair has been really dry and her mom (along with Metti) thought it would be a good idea to pour baby oil in it. Yeah…now she looks like we haven’t washed her hair in months. Reminds me of the time when I was about 6 and I found Brylcreem in my parents’ bathroom. I decided to put it all over my hair. Not a good idea.

Ahhh, I feel better now that I’ve gotten that off my chest.
