Ranting Again

Okay, so I'm tired & bitchy. Heck, it's Monday, & I got no rest this weekend. We had 2 birthday parties on Sunday, & when I say back to back, I mean back to back. Erin enjoyed both parties immensely.
After work today we went & bought Erin's big girl bedroom set. We've planning on doing this for quite a while but had hoped to hold out until her 5th birthday this summer. Unfortunately, she's been very vocal about her bedroom.
"I don't like yellow. I want a pink room!"
"Where are the butterflies?"
"I want a bed like mama & daddy." (BTW, I didn't get a king size bed till I got married. When do you think Erin's getting hers.)
Her bedroom set should be delivered within the next 2-3 weeks. It's going to be pure hell until then.
The whole experience was quite nice since we knew what we wanted when we went in to the store. Even the sales lady tried to be nice. A few of her comments:
Are Oriental children just exquisite? Their eyes & all. . .
When did you get her?
My friend who's Oriental married an American guy. I really hoped their baby would have Oriental features, but he came out all blond & blue-eyed.
I wanted to smack the woman but self control took over. -
I didn't tell her that people are Asian & "things" are Oriental.
I didn't get her. I got a new purse. She came home almost 4 years ago.
Thank G-d your friends' child is healthy & able to be with his birthparents.
Okay, so I wanted to stop the transaction & not buy the bedroom set. Then I looked at my beautiful Asian daughter who had been so sweet the entire time & used her manners. Then I took out my credit card & paid for her new bedroom set. She smiled & all was right with the world.

I keep thinking educate, educate, educate but I know I get tired of that approach too. Sometimes I just want people to keep their yaps closed!

BTW...I wanna see the new goodies when they get there ;0)

That's right, miss Tammie! All is right with the world as long as your princess is happy!

Enjoy and we can't wait to see it!
