Target opened at 5am and I "needed" to be there. There really wasn't much I needed to get, but Sleeping Beauty had a whole list of things that she needed. So I conned my niece, Belinda into going with me. It was a madhouse. The line just to get in the store was wrapped around the building. We had fun though and surprisingly, got everything that we went for except one little $3 item (I really wanted that sandwich maker too).

Pilgrim Hat Marshmallow Treats
Large Marshmallows (1 for each hat)
Fudge Stripe Cookies
Directions:Place striped cookies about 1 inch apart on waxed paper and set aside.In a microwave-safe bowl or measuring cup, melt chocolate chips at 3 second intervals until soft and runny. Using a wooden skewer, insert into one marshmallow and dip into melted chocolate to cover top and sides of marshmallow and a little around the bottom to act as glue when placed on the cookie. Using a toothpick on the top of the marshmallow, wriggle over the cookie until chocolate-covered marshmallow is sitting on top of the cookie. Use same toothpick to smooth chocolate over area if a hole shows when toothpick is removed. Place cookies in the refrigerator until the chocolate is hardened, usually about one hour.Using yellow frosting, pipe buckles onto the hats.

So I am very aware of the fact that I need to be on the look out for a missing shoe at all times. At some point during the evening I was doing my daily chore of cleaning out the diaper bag and putting things away. I pulled out one darling shoe and reached in for the other. Imagine my
Besides Carrollton, the only place I had gone was to the park but Addi did not wear her shoes there. But what if one had fallen out of the car as Drew got out. Oh my! I searched the car 3 times. Searched the diaper bag again. No darling shoe.
This is 9 something at night and Keith is out of town. How would I ever sleep? I could just picture that little shoe out in the parking lot of the park . So what does every responsible mother do who has lost her baby's shoe??? Please don't turn me in for this....I got Addi out of bed, told Drew to get a blanket and we loaded up and headed to the park. Thank goodness it is only a few miles away. We got there, drove by where I had parked
So, we started back home. Drew said, "Well, I guess we are headed to Carrollton, huh Mom??" LOL!!! Even I am not that desperate (although it did cross my mind). So we got home, I got both of them to bed and after searching a few
At 3 something this morning, I woke up and immediately thought of that cute little shoe. I got up and decided to look downstairs one last time. I walked over to where Addi had been rolling around on the floor and lo and behold there it was in all it's glory. Hidden in the plants that she had gotten tangled up in earlier. I was so happy that I wanted to wake Drew up and tell him...but I didn't. Because what kind of mother would I be if I woke my child up at 3am over something as silly as a shoe???
