Miss Lily has been begging us for a pair of rain boots for some time now. But like most of what the kids want I just wait to see if they ask me in a week. In some matters if they even ask me the next day. Most of the time their impulse passes. But not Lily's. Months later she was still asking me for a pair of rain boots.
So in my inbox one morning I seen a daily deal site where they were selling wellies.
(In the UK the people called rain boots "wellies")
So for SUPER freakish cheap I ordered her a pair. Expected ship time 1 month! It's from England so Mike and I said we'd put them aside for her birthday
On delivery date: wrong size. I converted the sizes wrong so I ordered Lily her current size. So to ensure she could enjoy them before she outgrew them I left them on the kitchen counter. In plain sight for her to see.
And oh. my. She was EXCITED!!!!
