You’re killin’ me, Smalls

Smallest child, that is.

And her very small toys.

She wanted her Shopkins colour-coded! Well, OK, and I wanted it, too. We BOTH wanted it! It seemed like such a good idea at the time!

So I built the cutest little shelves and painted them the same colour as the walls (“Pinot Noir” by PPG), and I meticulously organized the damn things by colour.

And it was so, so good.

The idea behind building her a raised play area (at the end of her custom loft bed) and an underneath play area was that she’d finally have a place to keep her many, many Shopkins and Barbies and random figurines and whatever other junk they invent to stick inside surprise packaging.

“Barbie Village” was a thing of beauty, if I do say so myself.

All of this furniture was either mine or my sister’s. My favourite is the washer and dryer I got for Christmas when I was eight. The buttons are still gummy from the glitter stickers.

But you do know what they say about the best-laid plans, right?

I don’t even know WHERE the bloody Shopkins are! There are hundreds of dollars in stupid Shopkins somewhere in this craphole,* but I couldn’t find ONE.

Aughhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

* Yes, we make it clean it** every day or two.
** Then it looks like this*** again.
*** Like, immediately. FML.

  1. Hahahahaha….this post made me laugh so hard. My daughter is exactly the same, right down to the seemingly millions of shopkins. It all looks so organized and pretty…for like 5 seconds.
