I also had to call Toys R Us yesterday to see if they had something in stock. Their hold music was Christmas themed (don't get me started) and then they had the other song about not wanting to grow up... their theme song? I held the phone about three feet away from my head while D and I listened to it. The good news is that the employee that answered was friendly and helpful telling me that yes, they did have four of the toy in stock and it was on sale. Now I have to figure out a way to get back to the city and hope they still have one there for me to bring home. I can see the disappointment all over the soon to be five year old's face if it's not there. I will hear it forever, too. He doesn't forget anything; it's scary.
Well, it looks like I have 73 extra things to do and at least half of them involve ridiculous research on the Internet... I better hit publish and move on.
p.s. D is bouncing off the walls for some unknown reason... I think he's performing a psychological test on his mother. I hope I pass.
