Busted



Bella caught sight, for the first time, of the logo on the package of bands I use to put her hair up. This is what is pictured on the bags, and yes, they are the bands that are made for wrapping up long show-poodle hair: The Daughter was NOT amused, and the sight of the picture on the bag drew this response: "Heeeeeeeyyyyy...these are for DOGGIES!!!"

Dang it. Now I have to go buy real ponytail-holders. We're hoping she won't catch on as quick about the crate we keep her in when we go out. (Note to overzealous indignant moms of the internet: we do not actually crate our daughter. Except at dog shows. No, seriously, never. Just like the drivewayside alligator pit, this is a complete fabrication. She did, however, teethe on Greenies.)

  4. You won't be able to get anything past Bella before long. I think she probably already has your and Alex's number. BeiLiSu thinks that Greenies are the best things ever! Why is that? Do they really taste that good? It looks like she's eating plastic...but hey, she loves 'em so Mama buys 'em.

    How is the big move coming along? Let me know when you are ready to talk about the "next" step!

    You did get the exorcism done, right?

  5. I would have thought Bella would have been honored to use the doggie bands! What with all her other poodle stuff, you should be able to *work this* Belinda.

  6. That is the trouble, parents always want incredibly smart children but DANGIT if they are too smart for their own good. LOL

  7. My son nibbled on a greenie the other day. I confess, I'm a little curious about the taste myself; they're like canine crack.

  8. Some parents leash their kids, so I didn't even think twice about the crate...

    Does that make me a bad person?

  10. Is this what I have to look forward to? Buying ponytail bands in bags of 1000 and dog treats for my daughter to teethe on? Yikes!

    I looked back at your alligator pit post and all I can say is at least this time Tantrum Child didn't show up at the sight of the doggies on the package.

  13. Belinda,
    Ashley's teachers in JK did make a note on one of her first progress reports to the effect, "Where do you find such a wide color range of rubber bands?"

    No kidding....Tell Bella those are imported rubber bands. You can't get those colors just anywhere. Especially not Walgreens or Kroger.

    Or you could repackage them. Put them in a zip lock bag with a different label.

    I would prefer those bands that won't break the hair to a grocery story band that will...anyday.
