I should have guessed!

Because when you are a little girl and BEG for Santa to bring you THIS:








What you inevitably end up playing with instead is her stupid little dog:

I'm not complaining. At least she liked something she got for Christmas. All I'm saying is that Santa could have saved herself about $146.00 if she had known.

So, just to save me some aggrevation... is parenting always going to make more sense in hindsight?

I'm not sure about that one. For us it is all the $ we spent to go to the amusement park...which was fun but where did they have the most fun? They tell me it is a toss up between Grandpa's house (a shack, really, I took pictures this time to prove it) or the pool. Could have saved me oodles of cash!

Homeward bound...YEEHAW!

I have no kids, so I can't speak to the last line, but I do know this is pretty funny. How, as kids, the most expensive hard to find items are always at the top of the Christmas list it must be some sort of super skill that leaves us as we age. Well, maybe not, my significant other begged for an iPod for Christmas and has yet to use it. Just aquire all the little accessories for it.

It's kind of like when we spent tons of money on the cat and he played with a piece of paper. My kids tend to go for the boxes, whether it's their present or mine!
