But I want it now...

Who hasn't felt like the cat in the picture? I know I have more times than I care to admit.

Last night we stopped by Toys R Us. Yes, it has a/c!

Rose has been asking to buy a new backpack for a while now. One time led to a few tears that reminded me a little of the picture above. Earlier in the week, we'd been at a different Toys R Us where Mackenna bought a Jonas Brothers Messenger bag and lunch box. Rose whined about not having her wallet with her, but she managed not to cry when she walked out empty handed. A step in the right direction. Yesterday she finally figured out how to ask politely, and her daddy said, "Yes!"

When we arrived at the store, she knew exactly what she wanted...a Selena Gomez backpack. If you don't know who Selena Gomez is, she's a young actress who plays Alex Russo on the Disney Channel show Wizards of Waverly Place. She was also one of the little kids from the Barney show.

They had three or four different versions of Selena backpacks and messenger bags. Rose looked at each one. She picked a black pack with a colorful paisley like design on it with a picture of Selena and the word "Alex" written in hot pink.

Toys R Us was also having a sale this week that we learned about when Mackenna had purchased hers. If you bought a backpack, you also got a free lunchbox (worth $7.00) so she picked out a matching one! Not a bad deal for $14.99.

At the cashier's, her eyes twinkled when she pulled out $15 from her Tinkerbell wallet. This was her first backpack. Let me clarify that, her first backpack that wasn't a hand-me-down from her big sister. She put it on and wore it out of the store. She was so proud. And so was I!
