The horse goes...

Sometimes you think you score an awesome deal. Sometimes you're wrong.


Last week was a bi-annual kids consignment sale in my area. Since I am a consignor in this event, I have the privilege of shopping before the general public.

I don't go crazy buying up clothes left and right at the sale because we are blessed to have family who love to buy our kids clothes. I hate dealing with the never ending Mt. Clothesmore, but it's one less thing for us to worry about buying. I snagged a few good outfits for each of the kids, and then I worked my way over to the toys. They certainly don't need anymore toys, but when you see something originally $50 and it's $12.50 at the sale, you just can't say no. This is why we now have a "new" sandbox that looks like a ladybug!

I also purchased something that Little Dude has been begging for ever since he saw one at a friend's house. I bought the cheapest one because it's wasn't girly looking and I assumed cheaper meant it made no noise.

We all know what happens when we assume, right? Watch and see just how wrong I was...


excuse the half nakedness
you should just feel lucky he has pants on!


Yes, Little Dude rides his beloved horse around the house ALL.THE.TIME!

Perhaps when I go back for the half price sale at the end of the event, I should look for some ear plugs?



Until next time...

well, it will either become his most favorite toy and he will annoy you well into high school with it, or the newness will wear off and you will only hear it when it actually remembers he has it.

Hahaha, I knew the minute I saw it what noise it made....our neighbor gave one of those to Nathan a few years back. I was never so excited the day it "broke" LOL!!!!

My kids love toys that make noise. There are some I can tolerate and others (like that!) where I just wait and wait for the batteries to die.

Doh! I wouldn't have figured that made noise either. Maybe the batteries or whatever runs it will die soon :)

Haha, that's funny, I would definately find the batteries!! Good luck with the extra noise!
