friday night ang, riley, and i headed to lexington. we figured (i mean... i figured) i would pick up my comics and find a few things for riley.
while in target i thought i would see if i could find riley a table for him to play on. once i entered the toy section he started going crazy. crying really loud. so i handed him a little laptop for babies. he was quiet as he played.
ang and i both know how much he likes to play with my laptop, so i figured i would buy it for him.
i found ang in the food section and showed her my great find. i puffed my chest out with pride and smiled for how well i knew my son's needs.
she told me to put it back.
her reasoning was "we don't need to buy him things he will only play with a few times."
so i took it back.
it broke my heart to know that he would not be leaving with something... so i picked up a little stuffed toy.
she told me to take that back (she claims she is not that bad of a nag...).
our next stop was babies r us.
we found some nice clothes and some cute little shoes.
while ang was looking for some more clothes, i thought i would take him to look at the toys.
yelling, and crying followed...
i tried my hardest to keep him happy, but he wants what he wants.
ang came and offered to take over while i looked at some clothes for him.
the next thing i know i see her walking towards me carrying the same laptop i wanted to get him.
"should we get this for him?"
needless to say... he has a laptop now.
angie admits that it was my idea, but i know now how it works...
mommy has to say it is "ok" before riley can have any fun...
that's ok... i plan on making sure he loves cartoons more than math. that will teach her.
