The Answer is NO

The last post ended with the burning question of whether I could go into Babies R Us and just buy the shade extender.

No. No, I can't. And I didn't.  

In my defense, some of the other things I bought we did really really need.  Charlotte needed lighter PJs since the weather is now warm, and she needed a few more warmer weather clothes.  But did she need $100 worth?  Probably not.  

I also bought her a baby floaty thing for taking her in the pool.  We are going to Kevin's college reunion in a few weeks, and the hotel where we are staying has an indoor pool.  Introducing Charlotte to swimming is pretty much the only thing about this trip I'm looking forward to.  I spent the last reunion explaining over and over again to countless Ivy League graduates where the tiny little Baptist college I went to is located and why I went there.  Then I got to explain to them why I did my graduate work at a mediocre state school.  It was so much fun, I probably went on a giant shopping spree upon my return just to continue the high.  

I also bought the shade extender.  But now I can't figure out how to attach it to the stroller.  


  1. Wow, I never thought I would hear you describe your beloved OU as a "mediocre state school." Most people I know would agree! :)
