A Thousand Word Thursday

So after 4 kids....I have never given in at the stupid little rides at the grocery stores. Once you put in a quarter, you are screwed for life. Then if you are at the checkout and don't have a quarter or 10, then you have to be the bad guy during a knock-down drag out. Well I have never given in until now. Sophie and I were at stupid Wal-Mart and the rest of the girls were at school. Sophie wanted to ride Snuffy the airplane.......whats it going to hurt I asked myself and then I put in the 2 quarters......yep, this is what happened. She screamed bloody murder. And then you ask how long did I let her scream just so I could snap this picture?! I was not about to pass up this opportunity and now I know that she will never want to ride one of these stupid little dirty rides again!!! Now I know that I will also be able to save money by not having to take her to 6-Flags...ever!!!! hehehehehehehe.....my poor baby....

Oh, LOL...that is so funny. I would have done the same thing. Make a point and shoot a pic at the same time. lol

HAHAHA! That's funny! I also claim that I will never let my kids ride one of those things either. So far, so good, but I only have 1 15-month old. Oh, but we were at the mall a few weeks ago and I went into Bath and Body Works and when I came out my husband had the G-man on one of those. He didn't put any $ in, but now the G-man know about them. And, yes, our mall is kind of gheto, it has some of those riding things!

I'm a mean mom...I always so no to those grimy little rides in Wal-Mart...and also the gum ball, temporary tattoo, and jewelry machines in the front of restaurants!!!

This totally made me chuckle out loud. Honestly, I think pictures of little kids crying is the most hysterical thing ever.

Evolving Mommy Catherine said...

Poor little girl, I bet it was a shock to her (and you) when it turned out to be a torture device and not a fun ride.

Just A Mom (call me JAM for short) said...

Yes, yes, I remember those days. Glad to see you're laughing about it already. You are laughing, right?

Brooks said...
