Sucker for Toys

Why is it that I can not just go to the store for one item? I have been looking for a mesh crib bumper for about 3 weeks. I went to all the local stores with no luck. I knew the Babies-R-Us had them, but it is somewhat out of the way.

Today I actually got done work early and traffic was not so bad. Since the traffic was light I was able to take the highway near the only Babies-R-Us anywhere remotely near me.

I was only going to spend 2 minutes to get the bumper and $24.99. Well, 40 min's and $84.99 later I was armed with the bumper, a unbreakable mirror, a little tike's boom box, 4 board books (Goodnight Moon, Runaway Bunny, Gossie and Ollie), playschool busy beads, a shape sorter and a little people dump truck.

Bubbie loved all of them, definitely worth the trip. At least I actually got what I had went for this time.


  1. Just wait until he gets older. My living room looks like a toy store now.

  2. I'm the exact same way with Wal-Mart and Target. I'm their bitch.
