Yesterday I got hit.....

by the stupid stick. Yep siree I did folks...On Sunday morning I got the bright idea to go to Toys R Us with my toddler.Did I fall down and hit my head?  Did the wine I drank Friday night give me hallucinations of an easy trip in TRU with a f*ckin T-O-D-D-L-E-R...All I can say is WTF was I thinking? In the master plan my hubby was also included and I know that this to him was like having his teeth drilled because
  1. Sunday is football Sunday and I never bug him on Sunday  - he watches his games, I read my weekly gossip rag mags, alternate baby watching duty and I do not nag and just relax.  However we needed to get the presents for LDG taken care of and I needed help in order to keep her distracted while I got her shit for under the tree. 
  2. Toys r Us is a friggin nightmare on a regular basis add the holiday season and it's a total sensory overload of the massive kind.
    Toys and 

    We got early enough that we were at the store at about 9:30 and there was no one in the parking lot maybe a total of 7 cars. OKaaayy that seems a little weird but we hit it a a good time so their were not large crowds at all...Thank God! As soon as we walked through the sliding glass doors I knew I had mad a big BIG mistake. I "lost" my daughter, she was gone not physically but mentally she disappeared, her eyes glazed over and I had lost to her to the toys...all those wonderful noisy ass toys. I mean it was bad way bad she did not know which way to turn, were to go first and what she could play with. Hubby and I are not patient people. This is something we are working on - slowly. So to say the least it is really hard when your trying to buy and get the f*ck out when you have a toddler that insist on stopping at each damn aisle to try the toys.
     more toys
    When I finally found what I was looking for I was disappointed by how cheap and poorly mad they were * I am getting LDG a play kitchen with all the accessories. After going through all the drama and seeing what was available I was ready to get the hell out of dodge - BTW ordered the wood kitchen on line will be here Friday woot woot.  I got a few gifts for my nephew and then we tried to motor. Easier said than done LDG did not want to go and had a total melt down - not to bad of one though. We sat her in this awesome Escalade as we checked out and she just chilled until we were done. Why do I have a feeling I will be back to purchase the below for her upcoming birthday?  Just a little hunch!

    Happy Monday!

    Dang. I can't control MYSELF in a Toys R Us. Let alone taking a kid.

    I can just imagine her face.

    *Ooooo shiny*

    I worked a Mattel shift in a Toys R Us over Thanksgiving weekend. My first time ever doing manual labor. I was so tired the next day. My point is that I had a hard time focusing on my work (Disney Cars and Barbie) because I wanted TO BUY ALL THE THINGS.

    I did buy one thing.

    Your daughter is adorable. I hate the TOys r us crowds as well. I took my baby cousin once, didn't come out until three hours later with a dent in my wallet.

    Luckily our Toys R Us in a few towns over. That place sucks you in. You get there and swear you just *need* all this stuff. Then you get in the parking lot and are like, "wait a minute." Luckily Cash has no idea what any of that shit is yet. Lucky mama.

    Toys r Us is why sometimes people eat their young.

    I love Toys R Us!!!
    But only when I'm there without my kids.
    When I am there with my kids...
    I HATE Toys R Us.
    It turns my kids into little monsters that I truly do not recognize: "I want this!" "Buy me this!" "But I NEED this NOWWWW!"
    and it turns me into a mommy that I also do not recognize: "Put that down!" "Don't touch that!" "Put that back!" "no" "no" "nope, not this time" "no" "I said NO" "NO!!" "OHMYGOD WILL YOU STOP ASKING ME? I SAID NO ALREADY!!!!" "Let's Go! Let's just LEAVE! You guys are driving me crazy!"

    Then when we are all back in the car, a few of us in tears from disappointment (could be me, too) I think to myself, "Now...why did I just yell at my kids? I should know better than to take them in there. I asked for that...." and then the mommy guilt hits me, and I take them all out for ice cream.
