Another Adventure at Babies R Us

Must be a woman thing.  Guys don't do this shit. Never.  I never have.  But I caught T doing this Saturday, and in public at Babies R Us for that matter.  We are in that god awful store that we get stuck in for hours after my wonderful wife says "We only have to go in for a few things."  Yeah right. I hate Babies R Us.  That place sucks.  Bunch of pregnant women, mothers, grandmothers, and all the husbands, boyfriends are all walking around looking at each other with the same look of "HELP ME" in their eyes.

So this one time I look around for T so I can put something back in the buggy that the kids had gotten out and I see her and this other mother and T is letting her try on the baby sling.  I just shake my head and walk up and ask "What in the world?"

So T is ripping off the sling and letting this other woman try it on with her kid and all.  Really this is a good thing because it is promoting sling awareness or some shit like that, where moms will keep their kids close to them instead of tossing them in the buggy.  So T and this other woman are now talking about slings and trying them on and this and that and all I keep thinking about is how we are never going to get out of the f-ing store.

I don't go to the store and pick out underwear and look at other guys and say "Hey how do those fit?" And then want to try them on.

Just another example of what fun we can have when we are locked in the Babies R Us.  What next bras?, nursing shirts?

I love my wife so much, but can we please keep the Babies R Us time to a minimum?

Don't get me started listing stores I will never, ever, read only if nookie is on the line, visit with my wife again.

Fabric Stores.
Women's Clothing Stores.
Baby Stores.
Linnen's & Things.

I don't mind the conversations about random shit. It's mostly the fact that they take 2 hours to say something two guys could say in 5 minutes and be done.

Anymore, I try to send my wife to the store with her best friend. Then, I double whatever estimate they give of how long they'll be gone. That way, I'm OCCASIONALLY surprised when they get back before I expect them!
