Angel #4 was invited to a slumber party Friday night. Super Mom's daughter was going to the same party. #4 had a track meet Friday night, so the plan was, after the meet, I was going to pick up Super Mom's daughter and another girl and take them to the slumber party house. Then #4 told me that I only had to pick up the other girl since super mom made other arrangements for her daughter to get to the party. #4 couldn't figure out why I couldn't just pick the girl up, neither could I, until I remembered how I told her mother a few weeks ago that sometimes I just slowed down past the school and shoved the kids out the car door. I think she knew I was kidding, but maybe she didn't want to take the chance that I'd toss the kids out of the min-van in front of slumber party girls house then peel out down the street. Whatever.
The next day, I was out rummage saling and bumped into Super Mom at one of the sales. She asked me if I knew when slumber party girls dad was bringing the girls home. I gave her a blank look and said, "uh....I never asked. The later the better." Then she asked if I knew what the girls were planning on doing at the party, once again, I gave her a blank look and said, "I never asked, I figure they'll come up with something." She gave up trying to talk to me about the slumber party after that. Then she saw Angel #2 and asked how her trip to Ecuador was. #2 told her she was in Uruguay, Super Mom said, Oh, I knew it was someplace that started with and "E". Uh....yeah.
It was Rummage Sale weekend in our town. It's so much fun when everyone has a rummage sale at the same time, much more efficient. Angel #2 went out on Friday afternoon and on Saturday morning we dragged WE along with us. I found some pretty good deals and so did the kids. Angel #2 really likes 1950's things, especially the clothes. At one sale, she found a cute little 1950's era green velvet hat, she found 2 pair of dress gloves at another sale. A third sale turned up a winter coat with a 50's vibe to it. She also bought a set of electric curlers from the 70's and Saturday night she put the whole thing together with a 50's hair style and all her new retro clothes. She also did Angel #4's hair and clothes and gave her a late 60's flower child look, she looked a LOT like Janis Joplin. It was fun watching the girls doll each other up and do sisterly stuff together and having such a fun time doing it. WE also hit the rummage sale jackpot. He found a big bowl, it was a decorative thing with a pedestal and handles, the kind you'd put on a sideboard filled with wax fruit or something, or something Harry Potter would mix a potion up in. WE's planning on using it for a cereal bowl. He figures it'll be a real time saver since he won't have to refill it 5 or 6 times like he does with his regular cereal bowl.
