Ok, two pressiong questions.
First, do bikinis and helmets match?
Second, is it too much to spend $140 (US) on a pair of jeans for a two year-old?
So, we're in the house we rented in Scottsdale, Arizona. It is amazing. Aside from the first second we arrived and stepped into the backyard. I almost got hit in the face with a golfball.
That's right. The house we've rented backs out onto a golf course. Sure, everyone always says how great it is to live on a golf course. But is it? Is it really? I mean, sure, it would be if there weren't, um, bad golfers, who hit balls into people's backyards.
The second the real estate agent was showing us the pool in the backyard, and I'm standing there, thinking, "Ahh, life is good." When, yup, a golf ball flies by my face. One inch from my nose!
In any case, I'm really worried about my nose. My nose doesn't have good luck. Not at all. When The Dictator was two months old, I was so tired that I walked into a wall and nearly broke my nose.
Then The Dictator, you know, learned to kick and play, and, for some reason, is always headbutting me in the nose, or kicking me in the nose with her sneakered feet. My poor nose.
I'll be lucky to have this nose in one piece for, well, the next year.
I'll tell you one thing America does right though. Children's clothing. You would not believe what you can buy for children in America.
Yesterday, I was shopping and I saw a pair of True Religion jeans that would fit The Dictator perfectly.
"Do you think $140 is too much for a pair of jeans for Rowan," I asked The Fiance, who, luckily, is quite clueless when it comes to the pricing of kid's clothes.
He was like, "Sure. Buy them. Whatever."
But, sigh, even I knew that that was still extravagent. But they were so super cute. So, after spending all night, and I mean all night, thinking about whether to buy them or not, I've decided I'm going to get them. I mean, really, how many days can I say that I survived almost getting hit smack in the face with a flying golf ball? (In my mind, this excuse makes perfect sense to buy these mini jeans.)
Exactly. Now if only I could find a matching helmet so I can sunbathe in my Burberry bikini.
