Yes, I came home and hopped on Amazon and quickly found a Mermaid Barbie doll for $15. Perfect. Mission accomplished. Next is Polly Pocket mall. Wait! $149.99??? Lovely. Well a friend tracked it down at Target for $50 and still that seemed steep since Santa was already done shopping. Low and behold, the Sunday before Christmas, Target marked them down to $29. Sold!
This leads to today. I hear Ethan playing Legos next to Emma who is trying to open her Polly Pocket Mall. She exclaims with all the exasperation she can muster "WHY does Santa have to make this so HARD???" Followed by a very long sigh....
Ethan responds with his usual logic, "Emma, it's not Santa, its the Elves."
Emma thinks for a minute and says matter of factly, "Well, those Elves are NOT very smart!"
I have to admit I've had trouble helping her get the mall to go up and down so I have to agree with her on this one. ;) And No, that is NOT Emma gazing lovingly at the Mall in this picture.
