Hello, Kitty!

I'll admit it, I love eBay. I love to waste time there looking to see what ridiculous things people place up for auction, love to buy Miss M's clothes there for dirt cheap, and love to stumble upon things that make me say "Ohmigawd... I remember those!" You know, things of that nature.

I have the most adorable little corduroy jumper dress for the upcoming fall and winter seasons for Miss M, but had no shirt to go with it. It's an odd shade of plumish-purpley that not just any old shirt will match. So I turned to eBay to find something that will look decent with this adorable, incredibly-hard-to-match corduroy jumper dress. And I found it! A nice little turtleneck of a shirt that fits the dress perfectly -- SUCCESS!

The dang eBay seller has it out for me, though. She ever-so-thoughtfully included a free gift in the package, that I received today. A lovely pair of pinky-pink Hello Kitty socks that are at least 3 sizes too big for Miss M. Found that out while dressing her in the new clothes to see if they would fit her. Okay, that's no problem, got some socks for the future. I proceed to strip Miss M down to her diaper to re-dress her in her little 90-degree-weather outfit she had been wearing. However, when I began to pull the socks off, my darling little sweetheart of a child was suddenly possessed by the Devil and a savage "NOOOOOOOOOO!!!" escaped her perfect little bow-shaped lips. She absolutely REFUSES to take them off. "Cat. Cat. Cat. Cat," she keeps saying, while pointing to the hideously awkward-looking socks on her feet.

I can't win against these socks. She's obsessed. Hooked. Addicted. In love.

That story is too cute! Guess she doesn't mind having sweaty feet. It's okay baby sweet doesn't smell. I see you have an etsy store, I just opened one I would love to talk with you about it.
