How many times have you walked into some cute boutique or gift shop and imagined opening up a store of your own? I think about it every time! Here's a fun question for you. If you had your own baby/toddler boutique, what are three things you absolutely love and would be sure to carry?
Three of mine are:
Cool hats for little boys
Little Giraffe blankets
Jackson has been so fussy this week that I don't have the guts to leave the house with him right now. I think his molars are making their way in. He cannot stop pooping (which is supposedly a sign of teething) and it is giving him a horrible diaper rash. He looks like a little cowboy with his bow-legged walk. Yesterday when we (it took me AND Curt) changed a particularly bad diaper, he cried, "Sorry! Sorry!" Isn't that heartbreaking? A guy from Sears was at our house installing a dishwasher during Jackson's bath time today. The second Jackson's bottom touched the water he screamed bloody murder. It was so loud and horrid that I felt the need to explain everything to the Sears man. Sorry, sir, my son has had fifteen dirty diapers in the last 48 hours and his little buns are on fire! I gave Jackson a whole banana today in hopes that it would stop him up a little. So far things are better.
Well, I have a long list of things that we need for our house, including a new vacuum since ours sat in two inches of water during the washing machine incident of 2008. Due to Jackson's fussiness, I know that leaving the house will be a huge beating. I just can't pump myself up for it for the sake of a vacuum. But I can get pumped up for imaginary baby boutique shopping! So tell me your three things!
