Wild Goose Chase
In keeping with the recent goose theme of the Henderson household, tonight after the kids went to bed I went out to find the Lightning McQueen scooter that Samuel is dying to have for his 3rd birthday on Sunday. Samuel is truly a product of his generation as he first saw this scooter while shopping online at Disneystore.com. He can't even say computer (he calls it a "peter") but knows how to use a mouse.
Samuel is in love with all things Cars and has wanted a scooter since January when he saw his neighbor and one true love, Olivia, riding one. At that time he wanted a pink one but has since switched it up on me and wants a Ligtning McQueen scooter. I went all over Salem tonight looking for it: Walmart, Target, Fred Meyer...Toys R Us was already closed but I'm checking there tomorrow. I will be so screwed and tatooed if I have to order it online and pay for shipping for it to be here before this weekend. Let this be a lesson to you my readers: do not wait until the last minute to buy your 3 year old's Lightning McQueen scooter.
I was on the phone with my Mom tonight as I was driving all over town like a crazed woman and she was telling me about the time she searched all of Montana, high and low, for a Cabbage Patch doll for Christmas. I still have that Cabbage Patch doll, Andy, safely tucked away in my hope chest so I can only hope for such results for Samuel. Wish me luck and if any of you have any strings to pull in the Lightning McQueen scooter arena let me know!
