the deep blue

 i am not a souvenir buying kind of gal.
in fact,
i haven't ever purchased a souvenir at any place i take the kids regularly.
when we were in grad school we couldn't have any extras.
now that sean's a working man we've tried to keep our old budgeting habits.
but when i spotted the white plastic polar bears today,
i knew i wouldn't be able to contain myself.
a new exhibit,
first zoo outing with chase
{he was so impressed}
and a good night's sleep 
left me in an extra good mood.
the kind of mood that buys something small in the gift shop.
but by the time i realized they made loud squeaking sounds it was too late.
the kids were already sold.
and my credit card had already been swiped.
the good thing was that i knew where my children were the entire rest of the day.
the bad thing was that so did everyone else.
when we went into the giraffe house i turned to brooke and said loudly,
"what kind of mom buys her child such obnoxious toys?!"
very judgemental like.
yep,
me.
i'm the one, thank you very much:)
and then we discussed the best way to get those squeakers broken.
the fastest way possible.
any suggestions?
all applicants will be considered.
also, 
i need a fan with misters installed on my back patio 
for the rest of the summer.
or on my back.
whichever.

Sometimes toys in our house magically get "lost" until a later date when mommy is in an exceptionable generous mood! And..I won't lie sometimes they get lost for good!

What a fun day! Squeakers and all...

;)

PS. My kids used to have squeaking whales from Sea World.

You are so funny, seriously crack me up. Love that you were being all judgmental to yourself. Funny girl.
