Kid(s) for sale....

Once again my children stand in the way of my blogging greatness. How am I supposed to write and research about the satin green Manolo Blahnik peacock pump?? (As worn by Molly on the Bachelor Wedding.)  They've been on my mind for a while and I am in lurve with these shoes but apparently they aren't available anywhere. Unless you're getting married on national T.V. to a guy you met on some cheeze reality show. 

{So delicious, no?}

Gathering useless information about things that don't matter takes time (honestly not that much), but if it did I'd really be pissed...demanding/needy children are no excuse not to produce a quality post. I have standards to uphold readers are discriminating.

Case in point - Kid #2 refuses to nap today and is apparently entering the terrible 2's (never mind that he isn't 2 until August), I may have to resort to late-night blogging. That may cut into my TMZ viewing time. But since I despise TMZ (as mentioned here) that might not be a bad thing....
I'd like to blog about my latest shopping finds but again Kid is cramping my style. I attempted to shop with Kid #2 this morning at Winners (TJ Maxx) and was looking at a Missoni dress and a Pucci tunic. (Yeah our Winners is all high fashion like that.)

{Just imagine Mama in these....}

 Could I try them on? No. Were they still way too expensive anyway? Yes. But that's not the point. The point is that I wanted to try them on but Kid decided to have a nuclear meltdown in the size 9 shoe isle because he was out of Teddy Graham cookies.

all gone, no more



Lately my kids have been soooo demanding. I love my nuggets but I really could use a break from them. Maybe this is the PMS talking right now but if anyone wants to buy my kids just name your price $$. If you're already trying to sell your own kids thats fine because I happen to know some roaming European Gypsies that might be interested in taking your kids and mine. Maybe we'll offer a volume discount. With the money I make I'll go back to Winners and buy that Missoni dress.

this is exactly why i roll solo sans children. as for the boy, he knows when it's appropriate to interrupt my blogging and online stalking of shoes.

good luck with your kiddies. hope they're napping like babies right now.

OceanDreams said...

Aww I hope you get a little break from the kiddos soon, hang in there and hope you get to escape into your shopping bliss!

Those shoes made my heart stop. Excuse me.

Gypsies are always a great option! How could they turn down a bulk-load of blogger's children?!

Wow I'm often nthe same mood!!My kids act the same way too!!Do you think that with three kids I'll get more???

Savvy Gal said...

LOL... shopping with kids can be hard. Whenever I go shopping with my sister and nephew we basically need to grab and go. Else, he will try to arrange the whole store and we will buy a bag or something out of the need to make it up to the store.

I hear ya, mama! It is so hard sometimes, you know? My children are very demanding, too - cutting into my blogging/online shopping time! ;)

Tracie said...

1. I'm pms'ing too. And things are not going well around here.
2. My mother is taking my kids for 2 weeks this summer. I'm going to enjoy it - if I live that long.

Awww I'm sorry life has been so stressful, with the kids and all. It sounds like you need a BREAK! Is there any way you could drop the kids off at a baby sitter and have a much-needed Me Day? You totally need a day to relax, shop, and maybe get a mani/pedi/facial/nap. Lol. Poor thing!!

Oh gosh I do love those shoes too...fabulous indeed! xoxo

Annika said...

You know you love it super mom!!!

Thank you for all the great advise that you commented. My problem is that even having a degree I still really do not know what I want to do. I do not know what it is that I want.

So that is my first step, figuring out what I wanna spend time on doing!

Thanks for being awesome!

Annika said...

Oh and those shoes are gorgeous!

Ela said...

I'll buy them, I'll buy them!!!

Don't worry, life w/o kids still manages to get in the way of blogging. Don't worry, it's just a phase...or so I hear ;)

I love Winners!
