I'm thinking its a good idea since all the good parents are at home with their children doing homework, getting baths and tucking their children into bed at a decent hour.
But we've already established that I'm not a good parent...right? ☜ Click there if you need further proof. (Is it wrong that I still laugh at those videos?)
The prince was out of town hunting with his new BFF who saved him from having to go to Delaware for work. Seems like they concocted some story about a group hunting trip with all kinds of big wigs, movers and shakers, and CEO's of companies that the prince's boss is drooling over.
The prince is just drooling over getting to call this work....
So since the prince is not what one would call a "steward of patience"...I decided to go ahead and take the boys to see Santa without him....that and I'm not sure how long the heirs can pull off this "good boy" act they've been failing at working on.
So we head to the mall just before 5 o'clock.
I'm thinking the stay-at-home-moms are rushing back from the mall to Little Caesars home to cook dinner and the working mom's are still on their way home from work.
I'm so brilliant.
My plan is working as I round the corner coming out of Macy's.
What do I see?
A tiny little line!!!
I feel like I've cracked Davinci's code...
....until I find out they've closed the line and Santa is about to take a one hour break!!!
Whaaaaa?!?! A break?!
You take a break from December 26 until sometime around Halloween Thanksgiving!!!!!
And it's not like you are doing anything!!!
You are sitting your big fat....ummm....patootie...in a big comfy chair!!!
Seriously Santa...a break?! Really?
It's enough to make a person want to become Jewish.
And the guy at the kiosk beside "Santa's House" with the #!@* remote control helicopters....thanks for adding something else to my kids lists when I have no more school days to shop.
Not cool, dude. Not cool.
On a positive note...thanks to my smart phone, I've written my entire blog post while standing in line....though the typing on this thing is waaaay slower than my laptop.... (Grrrrrrr.) But at least it helped me kill some time.
I guess I'll just play bubble breaker now....till my battery gives out....
Here is a Santa pic my friend sent me....bless their sweet little hearts...
