For the Love of Random

The sun did not shine.
It was too wet to play.
So we sat in the house
All that cold, cold, wet day.

I sat there with Sally.
We sat there, we two.
And I said, "How I wish
We had something to do!"

Too wet to go out
And too cold to play ball.
So we sat in the house.
We did nothing at all.

So all we could do was to
And we did not like it.
Not one little bit.
by Dr. Seuss

This is what PJ and the Bass man built on our cold, cold wet day:

Our cold wet day brought us this:

The other half:

And: can you see the double rainbow?

And Canada Post brought us this:

It is a RAOK from Aunt Andi. I have not even had the pleasure of meeting Aunt Andi and she send us some first aide for the skin. I have trouble with dry skin and finding body and face creams that I can use without irritation. Sadly I seemed to have passed this on to my kids.

Seabass is allergic to most sunscreens (he gets hives!) PJ is so dry she scabs up and Q's face gets a ruddy rash with any change in weather, his poor cheeks are dry, red and sore. If I put cream on it he tells me it burns and wants it washed off.

I took this picture because it was packaged so well. The ladies at the post office wanted to keep it, it smelled clean and good! It looks like a box full snow:

911 for the skin. I used Andi's unscented body lotion (one mom gave me to try while I was in CA) on the kids after their swim lessons this summer. Their skin loved it, no summer rashes and it helped PJ with her dry dry skin problems. I asked mom for Andi's email so I could place an order with her.

Mom did one better than pass on the email, she told Andi the scoop and the next thing I know all this arrives: The kids are all bathed and lotioned up in Andi's organic goodness and I expect everyone will be less itchy and silky smooth in no time. Thank you Andi!

Q opened every bottle and had a smell. I will quote him for Andi,
"Mommy, this smells like heaven."
(He got the line from Layne she said it to Seabass last summer and he has never forgotten it)

Andi, Q says Thank you as well!

Why don't you shoot her an email at TAMartello@msn.com so she can take a look at the kids in action!

That's cool! I hope that everyone has something for their skin now. Mom gave me a bar of soap Aunt Andi gave her. Will really likes it and so do I.
