I'm not a Carny.

There is something about having children that puts "the fear" in you. Like one day you'll totally go Bungee Jumping and then you have a kid and you're like "OH MY GOD! We're all going to die!" Maybe that's just me. But I totally used to love roller costars and all sorts of scary stuff (except for flying, always hated it, still hate it) and now I can barely go on a speed boat without freaking out. So on Saturday morning when we went to an antique show and saw the Ferris Wheel, I almost peed in my pants. I knew my kids would make me go on it. I knew my husband would make me go on it. I did NOT want to go on it. I went on it. 

I mean look at that thing. It's nothing but spit and tin-foil. Plus, it was nasty out. 

Even these two don't look so convinced. 

OK, well..maybe she was convinced. She was psyched. My palms began to sweat

Can't I just stay down here and take pictures of these cool blue and white lights. This thing seems to be run by a 15 year old Carny Boy. No offense to 15 year old Carny Boys. 

I almost passed out taking this picture. I mean I can't even believe I took it. Looking back on it, I was an idiot.

AHHHHHHH!!! I just rocked the seat! Look at how happy he is that I'm freaking out..why am I doing this again???

Oh, right. That's why. Sigh.....

Happy Monday!

My kids wear character pajamas. GASP! (a short rant)

I used to be a kids clothing snob. Snobbity.Snob. My oldest wore Gap and Hanna Anderson and Zutano and Kissy Kissy. Gorgeous little dresses and super cute cuddly pj's with nary a Dora or Cinderella to be seen. She had Lilly Pulitzer bathing suits and teeny tiny Minnetonka Moccasins. And then I had another kid, and then I realized that I didn't give a shit. Funny how that happens. They now own more Dora/Minnie Mouse/Tinkerbell shiny and glittery nightgowns than I can count. They love those hideous things. So yes, my kids wear character pajamas. And I may or may not have bought myself a pair of Mickey Mouse undies for our Disney Land trip next month. But that's where I draw the line! Flame away, haters. Character PJ's for life!

Happy Thursday!
