make yourself memorable. CHECK. {B2Snight}

the highlight of 
back to school night for me 
was when chase ripped the name stars off of the welcome board, 
and then proceeded to rip the star banner into two pieces.
this was of course after he cried until we let him out of his stroller,
{the plan was for him to sit quietly in the stroller. STUPID PLAN.}
but he just wanted to sit in the kid chairs like everyone else,
which of course lasted for about 1.5 minutes,
or seconds,
and then when gibson 1 and 2 got bored and found the toys in the surrounding cubbies, 
gibson 3 launched himself over two kid chairs,
and fell off of the kid chair row he had climbed into.
sean caught him about halfway between the alphabet carpet and the kid chairs.
all while brennan's teacher was talking about drop off and pick up rules.
and we were the entertainment in the front row. 
something about do not get out of your car,
that's about all i gathered.
yep, we are pros at great first impressions over here in the gibson home.
what do they say?
make yourself memorable?
in other news...
i spent $13 at the dollar store earlier today.
and i can't even tell you what 9 of those items were now.
i dare say it's impossible to get out of there in under $5.
i DARE you.
like i said,
also, we are a cavity free home.
which ended up costing me $13 at the dollar store.
b/c brennan's FREE balloon at the dentist popped 
when he was buckling his seat belt after leaving the dentist.
and his little face was just so sad,
so audrey and i sat and tried to figure out where we could get another FREE balloon.
b/c i just couldn't bring myself to go back inside and get another balloon from the dentist.
don't ask me why, it just felt greedy.
and we decided the dollar store was almost free.
and always incredibly entertaining.
so after $13 we walked out with 3 balloons, 
a pair of tikki drink glasses, and 9 more things i can't remember.
a checkers set.
some avengers crayons.
it's all coming back to me noooooow.
oh my gosh,
i can't believe chase ripped the bulletin board banner in half.
i think i'll buy his teacher some tape.
the really pretty clear stuff.
with the purple packaging.
satin, is that what it's called?
yes, i'll get her some of that.
and then i'll offer to cut out laminated stuff for the entire year.
b/c it's my favorite kind of stuff to cut.
and i have two pairs of really great scissors for it.
that i've saved from when i used to be a teacher.
say it with me:
