We ventured to the mall yesterday for our Santa picture. Yes, I said the MALL. On a Sunday. In December. The only positive thing I can say about it is that it is over. Although the kids were pretty cooperative, I had a less than favorable experience with stupid teenagers, crowds, and loud Christmas music. I'd like to share my little ditty, in the melody of Jingle Bells on what I think about taking the kids to a mall and paying 20 bucks for an overpriced, 5 x 7 picture:
Dashing through the mall
To meet Santa on his sleigh
O’er the crowds we fall
Crying all the way
Bells in my ears ring
Making spirits dark
What sane mom says on a cold Sunday:
“To the mall we will embark!”
Oh, Santa picture, Santa picture
Santa all the way
What hell it is to wait in line
On a December Su-u-u-nday!
But, I would have to admit that it turned out pretty darn cute....
