Like You Would Know What To Say

Arcoss the street from the Lowe's that I shop at quite frequently there is a, shall we say, adult store called Cupid's Toys. (I know! The horror! Color me outraged at my community's loose, loose morals.) Their sign features a smiling blonde-haired cupid and a smattering of little red hearts. You can probably guess that every time I go to Lowe's with juliana she shouts out gleefully, "Look Mom! It's Cupid's Toys! Yay!" as we pull into the parking lot. Every. Time.

I have yet to figure out how to break the news to her that it is not really a toy store. So I choose to ignore it for now.

And no, I will not post a link to the store here. But you could find it if you really wanted to. ;-)

Bear Down Chicago Bears

Friday was Sports Day at TIppecanoe Elementary school and Juliana insisted on wearing a Bears shirt. Luckily Jason still works in Chicago because Bears t-shirts are in short supply here in Wisconsin. The smallest shirt we could get was still basically a dress on Juliana. (I told her that the 80's look of oversized shirts and leggings is totally back and I was met with a blank stare.) After school I was informed that EVERYBODY was wearing Green Bay Packers shirts and she was the ONLY KID with a Bears one. She was very proud to be so original.

That's my girl.

(We're headed to possibly the only Super Bowl Party in Milwaukee tomorrow. Do we dare to dream? I'm not sure what to expect but am still all a-twitter.)
