Wordless Wednesday

Little "glamour girl" Olivia Nichole with her nails painted. :)  She loves to get her nails painted.  Hence how we got nail polish on our floor most recently!  She and her sister tried to paint their own nails.  My little princess!!

When your kids are normally very loud and rowdy and it gets extremely quiet for about 10 minutes, don't assume they're taking one of those rare naps.  That's what I did.  I was busy washing dishes and trying to get the nail polish off our nice wooden table and thought nothing of my normally loud children being very quiet.  It was about 10 am and I figured maybe they both either fell asleep on the couch or were busy watching Imagination Movers. I was terribly wrong!  A few minutes later when I walked past my room I saw my $30 latex foam pillow COMPLETELY SHREDDED TO PIECES ALL OVER THE FLOOR. (See photo for the poor pillow's condition.)  Needless to say, I was fuming. The kids each got time outs and afterwards Alayna, who did not admit to doing anything, painstakingly picked up each piece of latex foam and put it in a garbage bag. (Note: Alayna swore on her life that she did not rip the pillow up, her sister did it.  That would have worked if she hadn't had latex foam pieces all in her hair.  Caught her red handed! Or foam headed...) Unfortunately, I definitely do need the latex foam pillows because they are the only ones that don't cause me to wake up in the middle of the night due to an allergy induced asthma attack.  I took a ride to Bed Bath and Beyond (the only place that sells them) only to find out that I had left my $5 coupon at home and was not going to spend $30 on a pillow that I can spend $25 for.  - Yes I'm cheap -  

(Wow, wordless wednesday turned into a huge post!)  Remember about our Little Tikes Apple Grove Pals giveaway!!  Check it out here.  It runs until February 22nd, 2010.  Who doesn't love free toys? :)

Oh, no...I wouldn't have been very happy either. But, at the same time, I would have gone back for my $5 off coupon!

Oh, meant to tell you, your header isn't showing up for me...could be on my end, but just wanted you to double check.
