it’s really hard being a mom at christmas

kohl’s is having a 2 day sale on toys and a bunch of stuff, so lucas and i went there specifically to get maternity clothes and this toy i’ve been wanting to get lucas:

well we get there and they have the stack of fisher price toys on display on the floor in front of the maternity clothes i was shopping for; so while i was looking for my jeans, lucas was pulling out and looking at all the little people sets. he decided he really wanted the Discovering Vehicles at the Garage (basically a car wash). so i tried showing him the santa one next to it and asked him to choose one, but he still wanted the car wash.

talk about dilemma. i didn’t want to be like, “no you cant have the one you really want because mommy wants this one.” i couldn’t just say no he couldn’t have any, because i’d already told him before hand that we were getting one. i couldn’t buy both the same day in front of him. i couldn’t buy the car wash in front of him and then just not give it to him until xmas. soo i ended up just buying the car wash for him and not the santa set. i felt so ridiculous buying him a new toy to have and play with a few weeks before christmas and frustrated about the whole dilemma with the santa set. i think im still going to buy a santa set next week (i actually even found a better one on amazon for $7 more).

it’s really hard being a mom at christmas. i just want to buy him everything, esp since everything is on sale. and because im addicted to Little People. theyre sooo cute!

  1. Seriously, just do the 12 days of Christmas presents and it’s a legit reason to buy everything! 🙂 I’m so excited about starting that tradition.
