A choice

This afternoon we ran into Target.
I needed to get kitty litter for poor Mich the wonder cat (her box is inappropriately foul).
I needed to get Zyrtec for my mucusy, snarfling husband who is being tortured by our blooming trees.
I treated myself to a new palette of eyeshadow, because sometimes I should make an effort at looking a tad better.
We were in and out in under 15 minutes.

I know! Who ever gets out of Target in under 15 minutes??

In that 15 minutes Addie snatched a set of books about the beach from the dollar section and a 94 cent bottle of glitter nail polish. I told her she could have one - the books or the polish.

She thought about it for a minute and then said I want the books please, Mama.

Oh, how my heart swelled.
Glitter nail polish is awesome...but a love of books? That is is phenomenal.

Excellent choice, Addison. 15 minutes?!? I'm impressed.
