The Flower Confession

As much as I like to pretend to not be girly, at all.  I really have somethings which cannot be denied.

I love flowers!

I love them on bushed, trees and in fields.  I love when my girls pick tiny little flowering weeds for me.  I love flowers at the supermarket and at the grocery store.  I love seeing a vase on my table with flowers.  It doesn’t have to be any particular flower.  I just love how they change the mood.  They bring smiles to peoples faces.  Flowers can light up a dreary day.

I love seeing my girls wake up and find that mommy bough flowers at the store the night before.

Wouldn’t you like to wake up to flowers on the table?

Why is this a confession?

Well, I can’t walk past the floral department in any Krogers, without looking to see what flowers they have on clearance.  On top of that, if they have some for one or two dollars, I can’t walk away.

Tonight, that rings true again.  They had several bunches on sale for four-dollars or more, but they had one small group for only one-dollar.

Tonight’s find for one-dollar:

Here is my previous find.  There were three bunches, all for just one-dollar:

Tiny was too excited to hold still, so I had to help her hold them.

Princess was thrilled to have her own “vase’ of flowers, which was just a cup.

The Blue Cookie TMI

Thursday’s grocery trip was like most others: all three kids wanting to roam the store at their will. My fix for this has always been to let them have a cookie from the bakery counter (or go in the middle if the night by myself).

I will think twice next time.

We’ve never had a problem with a free cookie. It has saved so much frustration trying to shop, after all, that is why they have them. Right?

This cookie was a round sugar cookie, mostly blue with red and white star inside each other. It looked cute and all three kids were excited when I handed one to them.

Never in my wildest imagination would I guess there would be repercussion. Before the day was over, B was not eating much and fussy. Tiny was picky, which is not like her.

By the next day they both had bright blue diarrhea that eventually turned green. Poor B’s bum is bright red. I have been putting DoTerra’a Digestzen on his tummy with every diaper change. It has been gradually getting better.

Thanks to the blue cookie that caused more trouble than it was worth.
