It’s starting to look a lot like spring here lately, and Ellie is now obsessed with being outside… so naturally, I’ve been itching to buy her some yard toys. Slides, climbing cubes, etc (you know, Step 2 & Little Tykes stuff) - but brand new those things are ridiculously expensive! I recently told Adam I’d been searching for stuff on craigslist but hadn’t really found anything reasonable. Apparently he thinks that’s because I’m incompetent:
Me: People are listing those yard toys pretty high, I think it must just be that time of year.
Adam: I’ll look.
Me: No, I scour Craigslist multiple times every day babe. I haven’t really seen anything cheap enough.
Adam: Jenny, I am the Craigslist master. I’LL look.
Me: Seriously? How do you think you’re gonna find something that’s not there?
Adam: Babe. I’m so good at Craigslist I could find ketchup popsicles if I wanted to. Don’t test me.
Hm. Guess I got told. (By the way, if you’re looking for ketchup popsicles Adam can obviously find them for you. Let me know if you need a hookup and I’ll get you his email.)
Another by the way… if you’re a parent and you live in Anchorage or the Valley, and your toddler has outgrown his or her yard toys – I’m interested! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org :)
