I have just returned from my last minute Kmart run for the few items that I did not want hanging around the house. Namely a new sandpit shell and a seesaw, now both hidden away in the garage loo. I have really taken advantage of our local 24hour Kmart since they changed to round the clock bargains, earlier this year. It is a child free sanctuary in the evening. A little wander never goes astray, they have some great stuff and do all their markdowns late in the evening.
Anyway this evening, the eve of Christmas eve, I was disappointed to find my sanctuary over run by toddlers. I got there at 10 and left just before midnight and I am not exaggerating when I say there would have been 75 to 100 kids in that store when I left.
I know it is Christmas, but I can not imagine having my kids out at midnight, cruising my local Kmart.
What about you? Is it OK? Normal even? Or are you like me, just a little bit horrified and tutting under your breathe?
