I should NOT be allowed out!
Ok, so, the picture at left is the pile of STUFF that I'm supposed to be wrapping right now. Those are the gifts from "Santa", mom and dad. The pile doesn't have the Leapster game that I already wrapped or the Barbie "Island Princess" doll we got her AND Tikka (the Island Princess's elephant and sidekick). The big thing in the back is also part of the Island Princess STUFF and has a vanity, a free standing screen/backdrop, a tea set, the little monkey from the show - the packaging boasts "OVER 20+ PLAY PIECES". The big peacock looking thing that's laying down is a dress just like Barbie's "big scene" costume in the Island Princess DVD that her Dad got her a few weeks ago. Now, here's where the confession rolls in... for those who don't know me personally you probably don't know that I have an aversion to all things Barbie and think that they are inappropriate for little girls... kind of like guns for boys... not really the stereo type I would like to smear all over my kid. And then I get out into the shopping crowd with my mom and I LOST MY MIND!!! The rest of the schwagg is all stuff that I can see me getting her... sparkley red ballet flats, pink faux Uggs, 2 pair of jammies and a baby digital camera. I'm overboard but still inside my body when I pick those things. Clearly, I should NOT be allowed out. When I pulled it all out to wrap I thought, I have to record this pile somewhere before its dispersed.
Ok, back to wrapping... I just had to get this off my chest!
