|Carrie comes every Monday to keep me from becoming an episode of the TLC Hoarder's Show|
|Sometimes, her daughter Elizabeth comes to help me, too..and I often have a bit of fashion for her to take home...|
Beyond that -- she believes in Ritaluck. TOTALLY.
Two weeks ago, Elizabeth decided she wanted a pair of child-size crutches. She thought it would be cool to play with them...Carrie said that was silly, and crutches are expensive, they are not toys (she is, after all, a responsible parent).
But Elizabeth had her heart set on them...she was begging...then she said this... "Mom -- please call Rita. She can find anything.."
Just to humor her, Carrie called me....
Of course, I was SO DELIGHTED that Elizabeth believed in my magic -- I went out the next day and found a set of wooden child-size crutches for $2.95.
When I took them to Carrie's house -- Elizabeth was beside herself with joy. She was so excited. I was very pleased with myself.
Ten minutes after I left -- Elizabeth went out on the driveway with her crutches...and she fell...hard...Carrie texted me this picture -- with the words:
|OMG...and her permanent teeth are chipped....|
