One Of A Kind
I managed to go to the One Of A Kind Show at last.
Every year, there seems to be something going on that has prevented me from being able to go.
This year I was as free as a bird- plus I had free media passes.
I brought Lulu with me which was o-kay.
She chilled in the stroller for the first half of the show.
Than again, I came prepared with plenty-o-bribery-loot.
Chocolate soy milk box- bought me 10 minutes.
Bits and Bites- another 10 minutes.
Raisins- 1 minute.
grapes- 0 minutes.
lollipop- 10 more minutes.
Gum- gasp! I know terrible mother, but whatever- 20 long luxurious minutes.
It was crowded and I'm glad that Lulu agreed to stay in the stroller most of the time, even though we kept getting stuck behind elderly ladies, leisurely checking out the booths.
Imagine! being leisurely at a Craft Show! The nerve...
Let's go ladies...chop chop...I'm on a mission..I have to get the entire place covered before Lulu decides that there just isn't enough sugar to keep her contained and insists on getting out of her stroller, which would be soooo not good.
Try telling a three year old not to touch lots of cool hand-made glittery neat things 1000 times.
Eventually they refuse to listen, take off, and lie in the middle of aisle G and have a melt down in front of hundreds of horrified onlookers.
I'm just saying.....
But it was worth it, as I found that fantastic hat and scarf.
And I'm not really a hat wearer- but the reality of standing on the sidelines of the park/school etc. for what seems like an eternity when its freaking freezing out has brought out the sensible side in me.
Bonus that it's super warm and super cute.
Now...where was that pediatric dentist's phone number?.....
