I'm not sure how it started, but for weeks Madeleine has been asking for a hair dryer. Every night before bed, she says, "Mommy? While I'm sleeping, will you go out and get me a hair dryer?" I say yes and hope she doesn't ask about it in the morning.
Friday evening we stopped at the drugstore on the way home to pick up my vitamin prescription. As we're waiting, Madeleine asks, "Mommy? Do they have hair dryers here?"
Of course they do. She remembers seeing them months ago and heads straight for the aisle on our way out. I quickly scan for the smallest, cheapest ones they have. Luckily, they have a travel size one. And they have two. Not to be outdone, Lily wanted one too. I tried to talk her into a bag of Cheetos instead, but no luck. She wanted a hair dryer too.
They were very excited for bathtime Friday night. I'm just glad we didn't pop a circuit breaker.
