I thought that it would be a great idea to take Taj to see Santa for the first time, but I didn't want to go on the weekends because everyone took their kids to see Santa on the weekends, so I took him during the week thinking that I wouldn't have to wait in line--wrong! The day I took Taj to see Santa at the mall I kind of dressed up, and by dressed up I mean that I wore high heels with my jeans that I haven't been able to fit into for months, so I was feeling pretty good and pretty confident that I wouldn't have a long wait to see Santa.
When I got to the "Santa Tracking Station" there were only like ten people at the most in line, so I was like "Sweet. We'll get this over with in ten minutes." Unfortunately every little kid that was in line had to take time to tell Santa what they wanted for Christmas, not like that's what they're there for or anything:) To make a long story short I waited in line for an hour!!! and I thought I was going to die. By the time it was our turn Taj was crying because he was hungry and my feet were killing me. I thought I was wearing my comfy high heels, but now I know there is no such thing! I was going to be so mad because I didn't want Taj crying in the picture after I had waited so long!
I found out that our wait was longer because of one lady in particular. She kept having them take her child's picture over and over again because he was crying and none of the pictures looked good to her. I was like "Lady, he doesn't like Santa okay, so just beat it!" I didn't say that outloud, but I'm sure that was the pain talking. Anyway, when Taj made it to Santa's lap, he couldn't stop smiling. He loved Santa Claus this year, however, I may be the annoying lady next year with the crying baby.
