There are Flintstone Feet...

And there are Elliot's feet.

On our mini vacation taken this past weekend I was able to find a Stride Rite outlet. I have heard they are a great place to find wide shoes for babies. So, we had Elliot's feet sized for the first time (we have simply put shoes on and if they fit we bought them!). To our surprise Elliot doesn't just have wide feet like we thought...he has EXTRA wide feet. We had to get him 6XW shoes!!

By the way, he gets those wide feet from his daddy. I have tiny feet.

Those Things are Dangerous!

Anyone who knows me IRL knows that I get hurt doing the dumbest things. Fracture my wrist falling UP stairs, fall off a Pogo Ball and bust up my elbow, crack my head open going from crouching to standing up in the bathroom. Yes, these are just a few examples of the things that happen to me.

Yesterday, after getting home from a FABULOUS lunch at a local restaurant, I was setting Elliot down. In my coat pocket was this cup...

Now, I know it didn't fit perfectly into the pocket, but my hands were full with Elliot and his books. I put Elliot down this thing falls from my pocket and lands on my toe. I jumped up and down, trying not to cry, screaming "OW, OW, OW!" because it hurt sooooo bad. I think my toe might be broken, or at least very, very bruised and injured. It's still swollen this morning, I had to find a pair of shoes that didn't squish it or it would kill me and any little bump sends shooting pains through it.
Only me!

Dollar Bills

I have spent too many of these this past week. Summer clothes for Elliot, summer maternity clothes for me (most used even), a new computer (tax $), and now we are going on a mini vacation next weekend (also tax $). That's lots of dollar bills flowing from my bank account. While it's necessary and I got good deals, I don't like it...not all at once anyway. I feel broke and payday is still a week away.

I am excited for a faster computer and that we are taking Elliot on his first trip to a zoo!!
