Weebles Wobble

So quick post tonight because I have me a date with Colin Firth. Yes, THE Colin Firth. He's in my living room now waiting on me so I must be brief.

Today was tres stressful. The buggernut had more tantrums than I can count. The worst one was when we were in the book/toy aisle at Once Upon A Child. I was sorting through piles of germ covered reading material when the bug spotted what must have looked to her like the highlight of her past 2 years. Weebleville. Yes, Weebles. Those nasty little rolly people that never fall down. Not only did Weebleville make music but it also had all these lovely spinning pieces. Let's just say the buggernut was workin' it like Michael Jackson in the Thriller video. She LOVED it. But alas, being the mean ole mom that I am, I was not going to allow one more piece of plastic crap toy into the house...especially since next month is her 2nd birthday in which we will be blessed with lots of crappy plastic toys. I did try to negotiate with brand new Madeline books and toddler sunglasses but that was just not enough. She wanted Spinning Weeble-hell. This prompted the tantrum from Hades. Honestly, I used to look at moms and their kids in stores when their child was laying on the floor screaming and thought....oh, please, that will NEVER be me. Boy does God have a sense of humor.

In knitting news, I'm almost done with the baby hat. The Kashmir DK by Trendsetter ended up working up nicely after I hacked off half the skein because apparently on Trendsetter yarn skeins, you pull from the outside NOT the inside. Yeah. Well. Lesson learned.

Must go. Really Colin IS waiting. In DVD form. Disc 1 of A & E Pride & Prejudice arrived today via Netflix. What's better than a quiet house and a little eye candy. What, what.

So did you end up buying the Weebles just to get her settled down or did you leave the store with her kicking and screaming?
