Uncle Yoy's birthday is quickly approaching. I took the Yoys up to Hallmark to pick out some birthday cards.
I immediately noticed a fatal design flaw in my local Hallmark. The aisles containing the greeting cards were a tad narrow. Today I was rocking the double umbrella stroller, which isn't obscenely wide.
I pulled the stroller up to the Uncle cards. Little E immediately put down the car he was gnawing on and grabbed a couple of cards. Hmmm...this isn't working. So I move the stroller over in the aisle.
I didn't realize that on the other side of the aisle were all of the children's cards with Mickey, Cars, and every other enticing animated character known to a two year old.
As I picked up and put down the uncle cards, I turned to see Big E literally "making it rain" greeting cards. He kept shouting "LOOK AT ALL THE STARS!"
Good-ness! I move the stroller to one side and Little E is eating paper like it is his job. I move the stroller to the other side and Big E has his grubby hands on everything.
Luckily, our friendly Hallmark lady came over and entertained the kids with the musical cards until I had selected the birthday cards for Uncle Yoy. I hurriedly straightened up our aftermath and hightailed it out of there.
I'm sure they were happy to see us go.
