Hazard of the Trade

It's Spring Break! Woohoo! We made the trip out with Jayne and Rebecca to Bonkers and it was a blast. What a fun place for kids and adults alike! We had just a few things go wrong, and they ended up making me laugh so I thought I'd post about them.

Thing 1: I left the bag I packed with diapers and a change of clothes for Franny at home. Franny had a toileting accident while playing and while I was able to find a spare pair of underwear in the car, there were no spare pants of any kind. So I fashioned Franny's sweater into a skirt.

"I have misplaced my pants"

Thing 2: I left the charger for the portable DVD player at home, too. The battery ran out as soon as we turned it on for the drive home and Franny-- let's just say she was not happy. I only had to endure that semi-panicked feeling for a few minutes however, because I checked my rear view mirror before we even hit the highway and here's what I saw:

Sophie and Franny have really been acting more like sisters lately. Here they are playing dress-up this morning.

I can't believe how grown up your girls look. They are so cute together!

I love how they are playing dress up together, that is so sweet. Nice ride, gotta love the mini. How nice that they fell asleep. Driving time flies by when the kids are sleeping! I was cracking up at the make shift skirt. Way to improvise mom:)

Great story. You are so resourceful. I never would have thought to make a skirt out of Franny's sweater. That is awesome.

The dress up picture reminds me of when we were little and played dress up. You had the best dress up clothes from all the costumes and dance atire. It was my favorite thing to do at your house. That and play barbies in the play room!

Can't wait to see you next week!

What a great idea for substitute pants! Very innovative Katherine. Those GF/CF chicken nuggets actually look pretty good! I might have to give them a try :)
