Am is into bubble baths right now and I’ve been struggling to make it work. I wanted the homemade ones to get all bubbly but it just wasn’t happening for me. I finally went out to Target to pick up a kiddie bubble bath and was able to find one that was a good deal with some benefits such as being “hypoallergenic, dye-free, and paraben-free.” (I’m going to ignore the fact that it still has chemicals in it. Such is the state of our budget.)
I put it out as a special gift for the little one. The only problem? She’s not so little anymore. I got a less than enthusiastic response. I was able to use my inner Sherlock to deduce that the culprit responsible for Am’s detachment was none other than our childhood friend, Elmo!
So, what’s a girl to do? I certainly wasn’t about the flush my money down the toilet just because of one over-excitable muppet. Elmo had to go.
Riding ourselves of him was as easy as the slice of sharp blade. I grabbed my material and set to work.
Am was pretty happy with how it turned out. It might not be the prettiest replacement on the block but I would call this a frugal win.
