They say kids are expensive. I think they might be right.
In an homage to my home country - I am a frugal girl.
Wasting food is one of my biggest pet peeves.
So, imagine my delight this morning when I discovered the freezer door had been left open overnight and I now have about $200 worth of freezer mulch.
Aaaaaagh. I bet they could hear me all the way back in Scotland.
My plans for today are now scrapped as I have to cook all day. I hope to rescue as much of the contents as possible.
It may mean a few crazy meals but I simply cannot just throw it all out.
I have already had to throw away a quart of ice cream and an unopened box of popsicles. It caused me physical pain.
After my initial hysteria passed I began to look for the culprit.
My first accusation was thrown in the Husbands direction.
He made a solid rebuttal.
Then I remembered that the two year old has been sucking on teething rings.
She's not teething, she just likes the cold. (She has had a fever.)
I go and check and sure enough there under her crib is the ring.
My fabulously independent little two year old,taurean must have gone and got it herself.
I think the contents of her piggy bank may have a new home.
I am reminded of the time her sister cost me $170 at Target. (Reminisce with me here.)
Come on over - I have dinner for sixty.
