I took Molly and Luke to Build a Bear Workshop for the first time today... Let's just say it didn't go very well. Probably my first mistake was leaving the house too late this morning. I shouldn't have left so close to lunch and nap time. I was alone, so I took the single stroller. I pushed Luke and had Molly hold on to the stroller strap. First time to try this setup, but she did awesome! I really was very proud of her. I didn't want to tackle the big twin stroller and knew the side by side would be hard to handle in the store. We stopped at the food court for lunch. There was a Chick Fil A, so at least I was able to get some fresh fruit to go with the chicken nuggets! :) They did awesome eating their lunch. Another proud Mommy moment! Everything from that point went down hill! We went into the store. Molly was super excited! Luke really could have cared less...he has never been a stuffed animal lover (love this about him...btw). Molly picks Hop the bunny to buy, so over comes an overly excited, loud, somewhat nice lady to help Molly stuff her bunny. Molly wanted nothing to do with her. I really think she thought this lady was going to hurt the bunny she just fell in love with. She told the lady "NO" you can not have him! At this point I am really thinking this is the worst idea I have ever tried to do alone with them. I am trying to push Luke while calming down my daughter that is embarrassing me in public by actually throwing herself to the ground! The store is packed with a birthday party with all eyes on us!!! I am thinking to
myself what in the world do I do (all 3 of these options ran throught my head)....A) Run as
fast as I can out of the store with Molly screaming like I am abusing her B) Try and talk some sense into her while this over the top sales woman remains suck to us like glue C) Cry myself.....I went with B. I literally had to tell the lady to please go and help other
children. I tried explaining to Molly that they are stuffing the animals, so she could cuddle them. She still wanted nothing to do with it, but she also didn't want to give up the limp
bunny in her arms! I knew I was not going to pay 22 dollars for an empty rabbit! I asked the sale lady to please just make a bunny for Molly and I would make the switch right after I pay. This lady made Molly's bunny and brought it over to her and ripped the hollow bunny out of my daughters arms....WTH?!?! Molly of course went CRAZY!!! I was beyond shocked! I paid for the
bunny and got the heck out of dodge!!! Sorry, I have no photos of that extra fun adventure,
but I do have pictures of why I think Molly was in such a bad mood!!!! Poor girl was exhausted!!! How is it even possible to go asleep like this?!?!
If you are wondering what happened to the poor rabbit....Molly fell in love all over again! :)
Hope you have a great Sunday!!
