Danger! Christmas Ahead

So the season has begun. The season for excruciating shopping trips with a two year old that is. We went to Walmart this morning and both my boys (hubby is such a kid about Xmas) were delighted to see the Christmas trees out for sale and the yearly extension of the store for "Juguetilandia", the giant toy section filled with thrills and chills for the kid set. Last year Max was too small for the "gimme, gimme" part of Christmas but apparently this year he has embraced the concept.

"Dame, es mio!!!" "Give me, it's mine!"

"Quiero un coche!" "Want car!"

"Mis dulces, chocolate!" "My candies, chocolate!"


Needless to say it was a less than enjoyable shopping trip. I did buy some decorations and lights for the tree we will purchase (next month, November is too darned early as far as I am concerned!) but we managed to escape without buying any toys.

Next time I'm bringing a blindfold. Or Valium. Feliz Freaking Navidad.
