Helena tells me she's going to remember yesterday forever!: It was the best day of her whole entire life! And I'm the best mommy ever!
Because!: after an un-fun morning of broken-down-refrigerator clean-up and unenthusiastically embarking on a previously planned shopping expedition (the girl needs pants! and she's really picky about her pants!) in the only time window available in the foreseeable month, I agreed that we could allow ourselves (I mean, her) a few fun minutes to browse the dollar store, and there I actually endorsed and funded the acquisition of a bow and arrow for a whole buck twenty-five.
I suspect she'll forget this day well before I do.
