Good-Bye, Old Friend

Okay, I only paid $1.00 for it at a garage sale, but it is one of my favorite shirts. It's soft and a little stretchy. Not too tight. Not too loose. Not too short. The sleeves are the perfect length. And it's the only yellow shirt I have.

But alas, it is ruined.

Sister wanted to paint the other day, and me, being the supermom that I am, got out all the paints. For some unknown reason the blue paint exploded when I opened the top. It's tempra paint. It will wash out, right?

Not when you let it dry overnight.

So, there you have it. Another favorite piece of clothing lost on the front lines of motherhood.

Sniffle.

And now, a moment of silence.

I have a secret recipe that you might try. I cannot post it online, like I said, it's a secret.

And now what will you wear on matchy-poo day at church when we're all supposed to wear yellow?

Awwwwww. I am so sorry.... Though it can never be replaced, I hope you can find a new favorite soon.:(

My current favorite Mommy clothing item is the maternity yoga pants from my sister's friend in CA. I don't care that they make me look like I am still 6 months preggo. They are soooo comfy.

Thank you too for the kind comments on "The other side of Karin." I replied to you back there, too. And I never realized until today that one of your "Blogger Interests" is Martyrdom. You crack me up. :)

Ohhhh, you poor thing. I HATE it when I ruin my very favorite pieces of clothing.

Same thing happened to my favorite $2.99 Gap Outlet t-shirt. Lost to a tango with a blue pen in the dryer. You have my sympathies.

So, how did the top secret recipe turn out? Or did you try it yet?
