Where do you shop?

For Abbie, I shop at the thrift stores, or only on deep clearance.  Why????

Last week it was a pair of jeans colored in black marker.

Today she got a "snag" and then there was a strong wind.  Glad I wasn't around for that.

Just to make sure you aren't seeing things...
I might take the suggestion of Annemarie and make her wear them for an entire week.  She informed me that she was sure her Grandma could fix them.

She was horrified that I made her wear them to OT tonight.  The two other parents that I sit with for an hour and a half, had never seen anything like it.  Welcome to my world.

I honestly wasn't surprised or shocked.

Tuesday she wore a pair of leggings with little "jewels" down each side of the leg.  She returned home with plain black leggings.  Knowing her, she was probably trying to convince the other kids that they were worth something and was trying to sell them.

One day she will do great things....one day she will do great things...one day she will do great things.....one day she will do great things...

She WILL do great things. It will just be a long winding road to get there and you will wear out a lot tires in the process.

ABW, I don't know if I have told you about John Elder Robinson or if I have suggested reading his book "Look Me In the Eye." Now be aware that if you read this, you will first feel despair because he describes a life you would never want for Abs, but when you read about his thought processes and find out where his life leads, you will have a greater sense of hope. You can read a snippet about him here: http://www.johnrobison.com/about_john.asp

Take care,
Annemarie

Okay, so his last name is Robison not Robinson.

You really should write a book. You could call it "Things that happened and why..."

A Strong Wind! Hilarious.

We get grief for shopping only sales rack and thrift stores for our oldest. He is all the time poking holes into, cutting up, and coloring all over everything he owns...why on earth would we buy anything more expensive?!

I have to say though, that "strong wind" story is inspired. :D
