The day Mimzy came to the country

Today the big yellow DHL van pulled up in my driveway and delivered these:

Tres Mimzy!

As you can see, Abby's (on the left) is the Minnie Pearl version, still sporting the price tag. Kady's (middle) is the Baby Alive version, seeing as how the poor thing wasn't in Kady's posession more than 15 minutes before it had been dressed in a variety of doll clothes. And Sam's (right) is completely naked. It's obviously a male.

Any frustration, anger and utter despair I've felt this week at life in general was momentarily gone when I presented a Mimzy to each child individually. They all reacted the same way - their eyes grew wide as they saw the logo and upon pulling back the tissue paper to find Mimzy awaiting inside, they all three gasped and whispered, "Ohhhh.....Thank you, Mom."

I cried. Three times.

Sometimes being a Mom is wicked awesome.

What's a Mimzy? I take it it's a brand name of stuffed animal that children long for?

They're cute.

But do they come with lottery numbers?

Did you get the last Mimzy?

We....the people
