Trying to make our day go by a little faster until my wonderful husband gets home, I decided to take the kids to the fountain downtown.
We have always loved this fountain, but the past few times there are so many people that it's not fun. Today might have been the deciding factor that we NEVER go back. We were minding our own business in one of the smaller fixtures and a little girl comes over and takes one of Jamey's guns....he did have two but we have lost so many toys at the fountain, it was not going to happen again. I get it back and she sits beside me staring, "can I have that gun, he's not playing with it." it was in his hands, he was shooting it...."no hun that's his." We went through this for another fifteen minutes. "Can I have one he has two, can I have it now, It's my turn." Finally I pulled my parent voice out from the very corner when she yanked it out of his hand for at least the third time and said, "NO it's his maybe you should bring your own next time." She runs off. Now I have two little girls trying to pick up Baby Jack...him not having it. Them taking him into the big fountain or attempting it. I went over picked him up and had to remind them a real baby is not to leave his mommy's sight and not to be played with like a doll....five minutes later the first little girl comes back with I'm guessing her dad, he went on to tell me Jamey hit her and that is NOT to happen again. I corrected him and told him she had been harassing me over these guns since we got here and there was no hitting that had taken place. Well he believed me ( I was about to get my parent voice back out) turned and left....his daughter with me asking if she could have the gun NOW. Finally we left....NEVER to return.
