Every little kids wants a kitten or a puppy, well I got Toddler one (puppy) he just doesn't care that it's not real.
Every time Toddler and I've gone to the store together, he asked me for a balloon. My answer had usually been no. We didn't need a balloon in the house that only held a few hours of entertainment and many days of clutter. When we walked into Fred Meyer I was set on not getting him one, but half way through our trip I had a change of heart.
In the store there are these cute doggy balloons tied to a cardboard fence. If I was going to get a balloon that would have been the one I'd get. To my complete surprise it costs $13, for a single balloon!! I asked why it was so expensive and was happy to hear that when it deflates I can re-fill it for a few bucks, sweet. I still thought it was too much, but remembered I'd easily pay that much for a magazine. So with all my excuses run out, I got Toddler his first puppy.
I do have to say that it was worth it. To see that little boy walking around the store with his new puppy and making all the heads turn was way too cute! Now we own a puppy named Doggy and he is sleeping in his dog house (under Toddlers table) with a pillow and blanket.
Oh and I finally started juicing again, but this time I just do it for myself. I never eat as much fruits and veggies as I can drink in one juice. It's also so much easier to figure out what I'm having for breakfast!
