I’d finished getting the kids’ Christmas presents already. One day at Sam’s Club the kids spotted some giant stuffed toys. My kids about jumped out of their skin with excitement, they are obsessed with ALL stuffed animals but their very favorite are beanie boos. And these looked just like giant beanie boos. They begged and begged for these and I was like… well, I already bought all your Christmas presents, you’ll have to ask Santa.
It was a major challenge getting them to stay in the cart with Everett’s car seat in there, too! And I had to fight off my out of control germophobe impulses and tell myself that although the stuffed animals were touching the (in my view) disgusting, sewer like cart, and can’t be washed, I should just let it go. For the sake of Christmas.
