I'm so excited!

Last week, or the week before, or sometime in the past month (don't forget I am pregnant and have 3 other kids to remembering things isn't my strong point right now!) I was watching Jon and Kate + 8.

Do you all watch that show? I absolutely LOVE it because it reminds me on a weekly basis that my life is normal. They have twin 7 year olds - one of which seems to be as much a drama queen as my 6 year old , A, is. They also have sextuplet 3 year olds. And they seem to cry and whine a lot just like my 3 year old, L, does. My 4 year old, M, still does a lot of this as well......

It is all very comforting to me knowing that other people who have girls are going through the same things and that my kids, in fact, do seem to be normal!

Plus, Kate, is totally organized. She does all kinds of crafts with those 8 kids of hers and all sorts of fun stuff and it just makes me want to get more organized and do that with my 3 (almost 4) kids, too.

Anyway, I was watching the show and Kate had on a t-shirt that I knew that I just had to find.
I started searching the web and finally found it here. I was thrilled that I found it but my bubble soon burst when I realized that the short sleeved version costs $35. I emailed the link to my husband knowing that my tightwad ever so cost conscious hubby was going to hyperventilate and tell me that no way, no how was I getting that t-shirt.


He said I could get it. SO - can I just tell ya'll that I am so excited that I just ordered my "Mom to the 4th power" t-shirt. In black so that the contrast with the jewels will make them sparkle even more. I'd say I'd take a picture of myself in it when it arrives but that will have to wait until September or so when I am no longer pregnant. Don't want to stretch out my expensive shirt.

Now - this place also has this t-shirt which I would LOVE to own also......wonder if I can talk hubby into another expensive t-shirt?!!?

Oh, I love that. So cute. And, you look GREAT pregnant (from the pic in the previous post). So glad your hubby agreed to buy that. I love it when they surprise us!

Hope you're having a good week!

C.U.T.E. Thanks for sharing. I love that show and I remember her wearing it. Man, am I glad mine would say 3 and not 8!!!

Love it too, but alas, anything that says "slim, contour fit" is way out of my league. Enjoy it post baby, and yes, do post a picture. I lost my slim and contour after baby #1.

Those are too cute!
I think I may order one too!
btw, I love it that you called your hubby before getting it. So glad that I'm not the only one who does that. :)
