Yesterday was an interesting day. We were taking a day to go pick out costumes for Halloween. On our way out I stopped at the schoolhouse to get the card I made for MIL to give to her lawyer. I decided to take a pic for the blog before giving it to her. My camera battery was DEAD!
We get in town and everyone is hungry. We decide to go in Red Lobster...yum! We have to leave Red Lobster before even sitting down because Cutie freaked out over the lobster tank! We ate at Eat n Park. It was good.
We go to the mall to visit the Spirit of Halloween. Both little ones freak out and refuse to enter the store! This pushed my buttons and the day that I was so excited about went the wrong direction.* Why are almost all the adult costumes for sluts? It is amazing who they can turn into a floozy...Strawberry Shortcake...Alice In Wonderland...The Queen of Hearts...I was surprised they didn't have a sleezy Mother Theresa...gee!
We left and went to another costume store. Dr. Hubby had to sit in the Escalade with the 2 little ones. Manga Dork tried on a bazillion costumes and finally decided on going Gangster! When she brought her costume to the car Wild Child decided she would be brave and enter the store. This is when I realized she had used crayons to draw down her brand new pants!** She chose a cat costume. Cutie refused to go in and wanted the same cat costume.
When we got home all 3 kids were excited to put on their costumes. I guess we were successful.***
*At this point I may have pouted and fussed and acted 13. I may have announced that I wanted to "just go home." I may have began ruining the day for everyone else.
**At this point I may have teared up and announced that I just wanted to go to bed so this day
would just be over.
***At this point I had apologized to Dr. Hubby and Manga Dork on the way home and realized what a big baby I was being just because things didn't go my way.
