Shopping with Tate

Spring is in the air. I came home early from work today since I had to go in early for a meeting and was greeted by 60 something degree weather! I packed Tato up and we went for a stroller ride to see if we could find Elmo. Cady had a little Elmo doll. It's the first thing she has ever attached herself too and we made the mistake of taking him for moral support when Cady went to get her haircut...across town. We left him there and we haven't seen him since. I have been to Target no less than 4 times a week since he was lost and they have yet to restock that shelf. Our friends gave us a loaner in the meantime but it would be really nice to let Emma have her Elmo back.
So we walked to Target with the intent of finding a new Elmo. STILL not in stock!! I think it was the combination of sunshine, tax time and not having bought Cady any new clothes in months (yes, she wore 100% used clothes this Fall and Winter)that we found ourselves in the clothes aisle. Okay, Cady is FUN to shop with now. Well, fun if you don't count having to rehang and clean up the trail of clothes that she is leaving in her wake. The first thing that she did was brought me some boys swimming trunks and said, "Mommy, this is pretty!" to which I agreed and kept shopping. After that she insisted on pulling all kinds of things off the rack to show me and exclaiming all the while as to how cute they were. Having a toddler show you a spider man shirt while telling you very emphatically just how cute it is, is well...cute! We tried on shoes and $150.00 later with our stroller full of summer dresses, shorts and sandals we walked to check out. We cut through lingerie and Cady starts fondling the bras and yelling in her very loud Cady voice, "Boobies, boobies, boobies!" What a smarty!
I heard there is snow in the forecast for this weekend but that's okay. We have shorts and dresses which means that Summer is right around the corner!
