I LOVE THIS! Hey, what did you get?

Isn't that always the case. The whole idea of the grass is always greener. My kiddos both got TAG reading systems from Santa, and they love them, it's just, they love each others more than their own. Which isn't entirely a bad thing, but, when Tristan is more on the wavelength of colors, letters and numbers, he is reading books about long and short vowels and I am thinking that maybe, JUST maybe, it's a little over his head.

And the stupid just keeps coming...

Today, I was standing in what seemed to be one of the longest lines that I have ever stood in at Target. It was at least 10 people deep...and to think, I was only getting a gift card! There was this woman behind me, with 2 very unhappy babies, so, naturally, I let her go ahead of me. She was purchasing underpants. This is important to know, because it leads up to the stupid that pours out of my mouth, but wait for that, it's coming. So, she checks out and swipes her card...DENIED. She asks the clerk to run it for her, DENIED. Her total was $11something (yeah...some pricey underoos indeed) but all she has is a $10. Naturally, I cover her difference. Then, this happened.

Girl is leaving, very appreciative, waves to me
GIRL: "Thanks so much, Merry Christmas"
ME: "You are so welcome, enjoy those panties."
GIRL: has this happy/surprised/uncomfortable look on her face...as does my clerk...and the rest of the 8 people standing in my line.

Seriously?? Enjoy those panties?? What the heck was I thinking? Well done, Jenn...you definitely have a way with the words.

I did something stupid

Today I did something incredibly idiotic. Trinity was attempting to make something out of glass DADS CREAM SODA bottle when the stupid act followed.

ME - "Trinity honey, be careful with that...*touching the bottle* it's glass"
Trinity - "I know mama, I'm being careful."
ME - "Good *pointing to the bottle again...this time, getting too close and knocking it off the table* because we wouldn't want THAT to happen."
Trinity - "Uh, mom.....*confused look on her face*"
ME - *blushing...trying to play it off as something I meant to do* "Just trying to show you how terrible glass could end up if we aren't careful"
Trinity - *Just standing there with this "YEAH RIGHT" look on her face.*

Mass Consumerism, Shopaholics and Crazy Ladies....

What do they all have in common?? Zhu Zhu Pets. Seriously...these things are driving people to act all kinds of crazy. First of all...let's talk about the hoards of people at the mall...OH MY GAWD....I can't believe the way that people are running around like crazy to get "that last gift"....note to all of you out there, avoid the mall at all costs. Now, back to the blog title. Yesterday, I was standing in line at Toys R Us to return an afterthought, when I subtly mentioned to the cashier "So, what's the big deal with these things [pointing to the zhu zhus]" she says "Oh, what...the Zhu Zhu Pets??" and, apparently, that set off some sort of alarm in the lady behind me, because she commenced to jump out of line, and literally, scoop all the remaining crazy magnets off the table....WOW, I wonder if she knows about the "Limit ONE per customer" rule that they have. It was one of the strangest things I had ever seen. Either she was A) The 30 year old Grandmother to 17 children that all wanted a Zhu Zhu pet (unlikely) or B) Crazy. I'm gonna go with B on this one. You should have seen the look on her face. So, beware of the zhu zhu pets, they may try to take over an otherwise perfectly sane person near you.
