Today, I decided to get the Santa visit over with. I figured we get to the mall just before 5, on a Tuesday, and we won't have a long wait. First and foremost, I failed to take into account the fact that Santa gets like a 90 minute break mid-day. Oops, my bad, we got there just after his break started, but there was no indication of how long it would be, what time he'd be back, etc.
So, we went ahead and went into Gamestop as it was right in front of where Santa was at. As the kids wandered around, Nick and I perused the PSP games for a few minutes, then I Raegan came over to show me something.
She and Chris knew I was looking for a pink PSP yesterday, and she found a rubbery skin set all in pink. She wanted to let me know that I could put that on any DS and have a pink one. So... here's how MY end of the conversation and hers went:
MOm: "Oh, that's ok, I decided not to get a DS for Christmas."
Rae: "Aww, why not?"
Mom: "Well, there is really only one or two games I am interested in, and if I want to play one, I can just borrow yours or your broth-............."
-mom slaps hands over face-
Rae: "Oh, what games? Wait- we're getting DS's?!??!?!?!?"
Ugh.... So, Raegan knows the big secret of what her and Chris are getting. :( I'm so upset! I know she's highly excted, but really, Nick and I were just excited to see their faces on Christmas Morning when they -finally- get what they have been asking for now for months.
So, Christmas isn't ruined, but still... I don't like that she knows now.:(
