Sometimes, when Dale's out-and-about making sales calls, he has a little spare time. And, being the shopper in the family, he often chooses to spend these breaks at TJ Maxx. Or Belk, looking for Red Dot sales. Or Hallmark, perusing cards (sorry to blow your manly cover, Dale!).
Earlier this week, TJ Maxx called his name, and he spent a little time in the kids' book section. Where he found this princess book that he thought Ivie would love.
He was right, of course. We've read it before bed every night since. So it was the logical choice for Show-and-Tell yesterday. I, of course, was a little stressed about the photo cards, worried that all 20 of them wouldn't make it back home after school. But the baggie storage "trick" worked, and the book is still functional for its stories, camera, and photo cards/princess puzzle pieces.
