So, I pick up everything I needed. And then more. Much to my surprise EG was still fascinated by that stocking. I hated to do it but I just had to take it from her (in a nice way!) as we were headed to the checkout line. Oh. My. Word. She had a fit!!! She had NEVER fussed about something being taken from her so I was shocked by her strong expression of well, anger, I guess. So I immediately gave it back. I walked around for about another 5 minutes trying to distract her and get it away from her. It wasn't happening. And I was ready to get out of there, so I broke down and decided to just buy it, especially since she apparently developed an immediate attachment to it. Besides, I thought that small, ugly thing couldn't cost more then $1.
Finally, we head to check out. After wrestling with EG to get the stocking from her to ring it up, the stupid thing was $4!!! Yes, $4! I couldn't believe it! That might not sound like a lot, but for something I REALLY did not want, even for free... $4 was a lot. So, needless to say that ugly stocking will be sticking around for a while. And I will bring it out when she is older and remind her that was the item she threw her first tantrem over. Ha!
The star of the story
Told you it was ugly, ha!
At least she does still play with it. So I guess it was worth the $4 after all : )
