But I'll Do Anything To Get Out Of It!

tour bus or bust...busted!

On Tuesday, I needed to go to the Mall to return something. While I was there, I thought I'd earn a few mom points and take the girls to this:

Chesterfield Mall
Hannah Montana Replica Tour Bus
Tuesday, July 22nd
12pm-5pm




I thought after I'm done with my business, we'll run by real quick. In and out. Home in plenty of time for lunch.

Wrong!

In line to see the tour bus, was about 500 other little girls. We waited in that line for about 45 minutes when my 3 year old was getting impatient and wanted to be held. Not. And my 5 year old (the reason for the waiting in the first place) decided she didn't care too much to see the bus. So, we moved on to wait in line for the Hannah hair dos and karaoke. Although not as long -- those lines proved to be just as slow.

Then, to make matters worse...rainfall. Momma insisted we go home. We were wet, we were hungry and any minute someone was going to have to pee...me!

I grabbed their hands and made a run for the car -- both of them in tears. What a mean mommy I was! I tried to explain to their sad faces that sometimes mommy had to make judgement calls that nobody liked for "our own good." They weren't buying it.

So... an attempt to earn mommy points turned into a couple of hours of wasted time and the feeling I needed to make something up to my kids. Fortunately, nothing a few cookies couldn't cure.

And all we got from all of our trouble was a couple of Hannah posters and this photo:

So disappointing--I'd be sad too! We love that Hannah Montana!

Ah that's too bad. I just don't get the whole Hannah Montana / Miley Cyrus thing...I have 3 boys so have no idea what is going on.

Oh, the girls next door went to this! I wonder how long the four of them stood in line!
