Build a bear Bankruptcy..
Today me and Mr Bold took the girls for a treat to the trafford centre, since all the free options like feeding the ducks and going to the park have been exhausted and also the weather was not permitting to out door activities. After lunch at TGI Friday's, which was very yummy by the way, we took the girls to build a bear.
O.M.G. Have you seen the extortionate prices they are charging for basically baby clothes you could buy for a few quid in Ethel Austins,i mean £3.50 for a pair of cotton knickers for a bear? I don't think so! The kids were in their element and i let them pick an outfit and shoes for each of their bears at home. Mia chose the Hannah Montana outfit and Fi wanted the princess fairy outfit with ballet pumps to match. The spending didn't stop there though as they also wanted matching backpack baby carrier thinys and matching sunglasses and handbags for their bears, i buckled i had no reserve left and just wanted some piece and quiet. The poor twins didn't get a look in....god help me when all four are asking for outfits, accessories and Bears to boot I'll be bloody destitute. So for all you parents out there who are lucky enough to be oblivious to the whole build a bear phenomenon...do not do it, don't even go there......believe me your bank balance will thank you for it!
