Why I will be a good parent.....#1

So today was Friday and I usually watch my nieces on Fridays. Well today we needed to go to Toys R Us to look for a present for someone who will rename nameless until after Dec. 16th. Anyway...We pull into the parking lot and my very very smart 6 year old niece asks...

Rorie: Brit Brit (my nickname for the day) Why are we here?

Myself: I need to look for a gift.

Rorie: (Says to her 3 year old sister Peighton) They have a lot of toys here Peighton.

We get out of car and start walking in.

Rorie: Are you going to buy us something?

Peighton: (With a huge smile on our face) Your going to buy us something?!?!

Myself: (The fastest I have ever been able to come up with something) I would love to buy you something but Santa told me not to. He was afraid that I would buy the same thing that he was planning on giving you and he would be so sad!

Rorie: Yea...That sounds right! Peighton we have to wait until after Christmas!

Now I know that it is not good to lie to your children but come one..I did a pretty good dang job! There was no begging, no arguing, no tears and no headaches. (All of which would have come from me.) I had so much fun with them! They are the two cutest little things! And sense I dont have my own kids to brag about...I get to brag about them.
Here are a couple of cute pictures I snapped during the day!

Definitely a sign of being a good mom. Being able to whip a lie out of no where, on the spot. Way to go woman. You're well on your way. :)

Quick thinking Brittney! You will make a great mom, and definitely not just because of this:).

Adorable girls! So what will your excuse be for not buying them toys after Christmas?

You definitely have all the right stuff to be a super great mom! :)

Way cute nieces! I love your ability to quickly diffuse a potentially hellish experience @ Toys R Us....That's a quality of a rock star mom. I'm proud.

P.S. The lying gets easier when you realize it's the only way to stay sane. :)

was it really a lie? how did you REALLY know what Santa was bringing.. and what if you got the SAME gift.... and what if he would have been so sad... I say kudos on the mindset of santa!!! You saved a mother heartache on Christmas morning...
