Piggy Plate Hurrah!
A while back I was having a terrible no-good horrible bad day. I’ve had a few of those lately. I broke our beloved French Press and then on top of that I somehow knocked Bug’s divided melamine pink piggy plate off the dish rack and onto the floor and then a big heavy Fiestaware cup fell on top of it and cracked it.
You’d think I’d at least get a baby out of this clumsiness but no, I’m not pregnant. I just like to stack my dishes a mile high on my drying rack because I refuse to dry a dish by hand with a towel. I was so mad at myself. I wanted to whip myself with that dish towel a thousand times. But I didn’t. I vented to internet instead.
We don’t have a lot of plastic kid plates in our house. I think they clutter up my cupboards and I don’t have that much room to spare. We had the pink piggy one, a Christmas one and a super-long alligator one that pretty much stays in the back of the cupboard because I never serve Bug enough food to fill it up. I don’t know about most kids but my kid thinks every section needs to have food in it.
Anyway, I was devastated when it broke. I really liked this plate. Unlike all the other kid plates I’ve seen around, this one had really cute illustrations (to me). I’m picky about those things because I don’t know, I just can be. It also was pretty faded in a good way because we use it every single day. I sort of like that, that we use the same plate over and over. It’s like our way of not being the uber-consumer. We buy a few things and USE them. Or something or other. Maybe Bug comes by her crazy quirks naturally.
Guess what? Somebody on the internet had a piggy plate exactly like ours! And they weren’t really using it! AND they offered to mail me theirs!!! I love the internet. Thank you for making my terrible no-good horrible bad day not so very terrible after all.
That is awesome!
How sweet!! So glad for you and Bug!
That’s awesome. There are some really nice people out there.
That picture of bug is adorable!!! So glad she has a new piggy plate!
Oh so sweet of “Someone”! I was thinking how could I possibly find that plate and ship it off to you, first the green bear then the plate. It looks like you are having a stellar week!
How wonderful to be confronted, yet again, with evidence that there are lots of really sweet people out there.
we have a current version of that plate – with monkeys!
If that’s the plate I think it is. I got It for you as one of the thousand shower gifts I bought. Mom has the blue doggie one in a tote. Another reason I love target.
wow. that’s fantastic! hooray for the internets!
lucky you guys! Don’t you just love it when things turn out so well like that :)
