But for Claire, I've made an exception. Most of her wardrobe is from garage sale and thrift stores. Kids outgrow clothes so fast, that I can usually get practically brand new clothes for next to nothing. And that makes me happy!
Darren found a slide this weekend. I'd missed out on one the weekend before, and I was so excited he was able to snag one.
Claire REFUSES to go anywhere near the ladder, but will slide down on her own. She gets a little out of control, but is ready for more when she hits the bottom.
In unrelated, but super exciting signing news.....last week we really worked on 'cracker'. She was getting it down, but we haven't had the chance to practice for a few days. Last night she was eating dinner and I was sitting next to her eating crackers. Completely unprompted, she signed cracker and pointed to what I was eating!!
This is my favorite garage sale find so far. The people left the batteries in it and it corroded, so it doesn't make noise, but the chair is the PERFECT size for Claire. And, she can get in and out of it on her own, which is what I was hoping for.
