I stopped at BRU today to get a travel swing. I'm heading to my inlaws (without hubby) in the morning and we need a swing or I'll lose my sanity. I ended up out of the store without getting anything extra like I usually do and only had to pay for what I expected to pay for.
As I'm leaving, my mother in law calls and asks me to pick up a booster seat for her house (for allie) and I was all "I just left there!" but decided to go to Toys R Us instead to pick it up. I wanted to get some lap-tables for the girls to have to color on during our drive since I won't have anyone else in the car to help me with dealing with their requests. I went in and made the mistake of "looking around" and especially did the wrong thing when I went into the video game aisle. I left with a $487 purchase. And I didn't even get the effing booster seat! Back to BRU for the booster seat, but I got out, once again, with just that one item.
It used to be going to the gap or old navy where I'd always get tons of shit for myself. Now I blow all my money in kid stores. Argh!! See what being a mom does to us shop-a-holics?
