In my last post, I sent you over to the article that had me and my gals up in arms. Things got pretty heated over there, we weren't going to back down. We were all speaking on behalf of our children (and ourselves, of course).
And you know what, today, we got our apology. If even one reader *gets it* and changes their way of thinking regarding adoption and finances and refrains from asking someone at the store how much their child cost, it was all worth it.
That's what a bunch of adoptive mothers and mothers-to-be can do. So if you have a battle to fight, send it our way, we only use our powers for good (well, except for that one thing, but nobody knows that's us.....)
On to the Dumpling. She's still sick, though her mood has improved tremendously and she's back to being a naughty 2 year-old. It was mommy's day at home today, and by nap time, I was exhausted! So when hubby got home this afternoon, I treated myself to a rare manicure. I don't have long nails, but they came out pretty and... clean! Let's see how long that lasts.
Finally, on a fashion note, i just want to tell you this breaking news: Green is the new orange, which was the new pink. Never mind all the turquoise you see everywhere, the new color is green. I now find myself with 2 cute spaghetti-strap tops in green (one mossy, with sparkles, one minty and satin), and a green striped belt. 3 items in one week. the last time that happened, I went all pink a year before pink was in. So when everything is green next year, just remember, you heard it here first.
