i laugh too loud. i sing all the time. i cry easily. i've been told i have the oddest sense of humor. ever. yes, i'm the one in the movies laughing when no one else gets it. the only time i dance is for my kids. they love my "rubber dance!" remember in school when you use to shake your pencils til they looked all bendy and rubbery? yeah, it's like that! ha! i stay up late and wake up early. i see a therapist who helps keep me straight and making good decisions. i do not speak to my mother and think this is great! I am moody, opinionated, emotional, intelligent, and empathetic. i love all things girly but mostly shoes, and have a bizarre infatuation with the following: lady gaga, celine dion, stacy london, britney spears. (how the heck does that even make sense?!) oh yeah and i am addicted to my iPhone.

shopaholic @ 5.

the entire fam went to target last night. we went to go get the ladies a new webkinz, sir g some turtlenecks, and look for matching bedding for my ladies' room. but hellooooooo people, 'tis halloween time. and what does every target have that is like a magnet to every freak-child in the neighborhood?

yes. halloween town. masks, paints, costumes, graveyards, and talking, push-button activated butlers that have scared countless children shitless whilst their parents shop...or come up behind them to scare the bejesus out of them while sticking their hand near the cackling witch.

i love how no matter what mask lady n has on, she is always "growling" with her claws raised. from bert...to the joker....to the creepy bug eyed guy.....rarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

then i took lady o to go look through some stuff to find a camera for the girls to share so that they lady n will stop stealing mind. when i came back to sir g & lady n i found this:

umm hello. my birthday is next, wild child. then it's yours. then it's christmas time! gee willakers!!!
as soon as i turned the corner, i caught her doing this!:

as if we needed anymore encouragement! i'm sure my taking pictures didn't help! so i had her put everything back by process of elimination: moon sand or dora princess? dora princess or doodle pad? doodle pad or bathtub shave kit? etc...until we reached bathtub shave kit [she chose that over like 6 of the remaining toys in the cart.] she was ok and then it was shave kit or camera? sad face time. lots of whining and crying at this point.

i finally got that whole issue handled and we were looking at bedding for their bedroom. alas, she tried again...and she has no clue i got this picture...and to just show how much she wanted the pillow down there i'll have you know, we never purchased it...and she never even noticed it was missing!

I don't know if it was Lady N's claws or not but that Bert was scary!

Jax said...

It certainly looks like a good time was had by all!

That is tooooo funny. Isn't it amazing how shopping with kids is like a walk through a mine field? You are constantly having to dodge their purchases ideas! Just today we went to Publix...for spaguetti and cheerios...and spent a great deal of time arguing with Ben that NO HE COULD NOT HAVE THAT MOTORCYCLE that was hanging so perfectly at a child's eye level in the cereal aisle!

Kathryn said...

Hilarious! Looks like the most fun I've seen anyone have shopping for things that you dont even need...YET!

Love the costumes!
