So...I finally decided on a t-shirt design for this year's shirts. I think. I have sent them to our "t-shirt friends" and they are going to send me a proof. I am hoping to get that in the next day or so and then you can start submitting your orders. We are already up to 14 orders. I will tell you that the prices have increased some. Two reasons. Well, actually three. One, the prices of the shirts have gone up almost $1.00 from last year. Second, last year I completely forgot to include sales tax. Good for all of you. Not so good for me and my checkbook. Ha. Not sure how I forgot that, but I did and didn't realize it until I went to write the final check and realized I was short some cash. Oops. It all worked out though. And finally, I am tossing around the idea of tacking on a $1.25 to each shirt to use as a donation to the March of Dimes. Of course Travis and I would make our own personal donation, completely separate, but I would like to be able to give them something from the sale of the shirts. If I sold 25 shirts then we would be able to give the MOD $31.25 or if we sold 50 shirts then $62.50. If you aren't comfortable with that then please let me know. Really, please. At this moment I don't have an exact price because I don't know a total number of orders and the price is based in part on that. Last year we ordered 110 shirts (wowzers!) and if we ordered that same amount this year then our price for white t-shirts would be $7.75 and grey t-shirts would be $8.60. Still can't decide between white and grey.
-----------------And, I'd like to report that little Miss MK has grown out of her "no", throwing toys and tantrum phase, BUT she hasn't. Still doing lots of all of those things and this mommy here doesn't have a clue what to do to break her. And believe me, we've tried lots of things - timeout, ignoring her behaviors, rewards for good behavior, taking things away and even a pop or two in the thigh. I know she will grow out of this, but in the meantime she is giving us a run for our money. And she's only two!
