not so fast

I guess I spoke too soon. Maybe we need a little more time with Safe Side Superchick.

The girls were overcome by temptation today in the Wal-Mart checkout line. The waiting, the friendly older couple behind us, the inquisitive cashier...it was the perfect storm.

Technically, they didn't really break the rules.

They pointed out that they didn't know anyone in line, labeled them all "don't knows," and then asked if it was okay just to say hi.

It was all over after that.

They started with "Hi," then proceeded to put on a mini-talent show right there in line. It was complete with theme songs from all of the Disney Princess movies, some high-kicks, and a little hair-pulling. Fortunately for the girls, there was a problem with the register just as we tried to pay, so they had a captive audience for an additional few minutes.

When the couple behind us asked the girls what their names were, I was curious to see what they'd say. Like I said, they didn't technically break the rules. Instead of telling them their names, they spelled them!

What can I say...if there's a loophole, these two will find it!

Oh, meant to get back with you on the Hooked on Numbers. We love it so far. Girls have learned so much - they love the cd-rom with games most!
