Could someone clone me?

Today is insane.

Audrey has a birthday party from 12:30 to 3. Mina has a birthday party from 2 to 4:30. Oh, and we have a preschool event from 4 to 7:30 tonight.

I'm going to be going all day.

It was bound to happen. My girls are only 3 years apart, so the time finally came when they both started having mini-social lives.

I think I'm going to go stock up on wrapping paper and ribbon now for the onslaught of gift buying I'll need to do for the next 15 years.

The birthday party Mina is going to is Bratz-themed. Now, we don't do Bratz at our house. Mina knows that. In fact, she was nervous to even show me the invitation which I thought was really cute. She's such a rule follower.

I took the opportunity to show her that while we don't like something, we're not going to judge someone else for liking it (within reason, of course). I made sure to remind her not to start spouting our disdain for those slutty little dolls while at the party.

The invitation stated that they were going to do mini-makeovers. I'm a little nervous what that means but, having chatted with the birthday girl's Mom more than a few times, I'm fairly certain my daughter won't come home looking like a prostitute.

(If she does though, I promise to get photographic proof for future blackmail ammunition).

Wish me luck. It's going to be one hell of a day.

Good luck getting around to all of the events today!

"Pocket-sized prostitutes" is what we like to call those plastic hooker looking dolls. Ugh.

Kids looking like ho's, it's the new American dreqm.

Jewgirl said...

mini social lives?! That is hilarious.

I've never heard the Bratz described as prostitutes- I'm howling, child.

I will check back for a full update on Monday.

Please, we don't refer to "Bratz" and Bratz knockoffs as "prostitutes" or "slutty".

We call them skeezers.

Winter said...

Ooou I like that, skeezers.

I keep hoping that the Bratz will fall out of favor but I hope the same thing about baggy pants hanging below the knees.

I'm lucky. My cats are relatively antisocial, so I don't have to take them to many parties.

Our girls have gone to those mini-makeover parties before.

I think they're evil.

I like stuff and things. I've been married for close to 14 years and have two miniature versions of myself running around (and it frightens me most of the time). I have never been nor will I ever be a vegetarian.
