I took Mel to Build-A-Bear at her request. I had avoided that until now but she has been saving $$ since her birthday in October and really wanted to go. Surprise, surprise, overpriced junk. And lots of sequins. And feathers. Oh well, she's happy and I made it. I'm hoping for some award from Cranky, Nerdy Mother's of America for making it through. And I took no pictures. I was too bogged down in sensory overload from a trip to the mall. Have I mentioned I loathe malls.
