Home for the Gnome

The Princess needed a nightlight so we went to Target, home of everything anyone could ever need.  The lighting/light bulb department seemed like a logical place to get a nightlight and, sure enough, they had nightlights. Three of them.  Yep, that's right. THREE!  And they were all Disney ones!!!  Target, I'm not impressed.

Of course, The Princess zeroed right in on the Disney princess one and immediately asked to see it.  Because I am a genius I didn't tell her that the "princess thing" she was holding was a nightlight; I just couldn't bear the thought of buying a disney nightlight... I have to draw a line somewhere.

In desperation I decided to head over to the bedding section, hoping for a miracle.  I spotted it immediately. "Look!! A nightlight!" I exclaimed excitedly.

Sitting all by itself on the shelf was a little mushroom; perfect for gnomes and other woodland creatures. The Princess LOVES mushrooms and gnomes so she greeted the discovery with all the rapture it deserved. She scooped up that mushroom and I ditched the Disney light.

Now the light is on in her room welcoming any homeless gnomes who happen to be in the neighborhood.
