the mall of america was complete mayhem - not gonna lie... it wasn't pretty!
my poor darling daughter was so overwhelmed, overstimulated, tired and "over it" by about 10 minutes into the experience....
there were SO MANY PEOPLE and not enough space to walk, push a stroller, deal with a child having a tantrum, sweat a little, and drink a diet coke all at the same time.
i managed to hit a few stores, after miss thang fell asleep in her stroller AND word on the street is that my dimpled dude of a husband purchased something for me and it is hidden in our room... i have looked ALL OVER and still nothin'.... no, i am not 12... yes, i love to know what i am getting for christmas, birthdays, valentine's day, anniversaries, etc... sorry! :-) mama no likey surprises!
we managed to make it home (thru major SNOWFALL) without crawling into balls and crying a little from the madness... the hubster had to plow, josie got the stomach flu, and i have taken several long, hot baths, and am trying to remember to take it all in stride....
if mary can give birth in a stable, then i can handle flu bugs and a traveling husband.
on a different note... found this and had to print it out and plaster it to my cupboard!
