For Sale

When Harper farts it smells like cleaning supplies. Is this normal?

I decided today that Friday is the day. I am having a rummage sale. Pedro will have no part in it. My Dad hated them too when my Mom had them. Why is this? Why do men hate rummage sales. I think it is a great way to sell things that have served there time and then use the money to buy things needed now! For the last...oh, 4 years I've been holding onto Mason's tiny preemie things because I just couldn't let go of them; there were too many emotions attached to them. Now? I am ready. I have a perfectly healthy nearly 4 year old that will never fit into those tiny things, but I have him and that is way more important. The rest is just stuff. Stuff that will be sold on Friday.

I want to just keep a very few special things, that way if we have another baby we can use those very special things just one more time. I know I said we were done, but I am not sure anymore. People talk about "feeling complete" with their family. Is this a figure of speech or is there really a feeling of completeness? If there is an actual feeling, I don't have it yet, I don't think? Watch, 6 babies later and I am still waiting for the "feeling" only to find out it's just an expression. No need for a bunch of "I told you" comments about wanting more babies. I am starting to think you guys know me better than I know myself!

On a completely different note. Harper's birthday is coming up and I am thinking of getting her a doll. I just know that I want it to be special. I don't want a Cabbage Patch doll or any of those skanky girly dolls. What I do want is something soft all over and possibly a personalized one that looks like her? Are any of you familiar with a doll like this? Where might I find or order one. Because, soon, like Friday I'm gonna have a pocket full of bling!

I think your talking about mytwinn.com. We gave each of the girls a madame alexander doll for christmas one year and it was great. My first doll was also a Madame Alexander - they are heirloom dolls that they can still play with. I like this one http://apinkprincess.net/store/product.php?productid=434&cat=266&page=1

LOL about the cleaning supply farts. didn't you say she just ate some comet?

good luck w/ the rummage sale. i hope you make bank!

what about a waldorf doll? they are certainly soft all over and i bet you could find one that resembles the cutie.

Good luck at the rummage/yard/garage sale. Isn't it funny how people from different places call them different things?

AnnieM said...

I talk big. It is still damn hard to let go of some of these things...for like a dollar.

Ashley those are cute, but I want a totally soft baby.

Waldorf it is! Thanks Amy.

Chick, yes. Rummage and garage are interchangable but rarely do you hear of a yard sale in the midwest.

I was thinking the same thing about the cleaning supply/comet farts. We say garage sale down here.

Not that you asked

That one is cute but much cheaper than the Waldorf. I have no idea what you're looking for exactly. I love baby dolls like that.

How about a Taggies doll? Syd loves her Taggies books. www.taggies.com

hope your rummage sale went well.

Mommyca said...

Nothing like a clean smelling fart!LOL! That's too funny!

I need to have a rummage sale too, great idea! hope it went well!

And your little girl is going to be one?! Don't they grow up way too fast?

Kristen said...

Your fart comment has me rolling!

I just noticed that A Toy Garden has some Waldorf style dolls on clearance and thought of you

And this store has my favorite dolls, but I just can't bring myself to spend the money... YET!

I have no idea about the dolls. Mia has one that came with an outfit for her that matched that of the doll. And I think she has one of those Madame Alexander doll people but I didn't buy her either of them. She does like the one that has the matching outfit. And it looks like her, too.
I've been thinking of having a yard sale myself. I have way too much junk in my house.
Good luck with it!
