I am so GLAD I’m done battling this stupidity.
Moms? Just. Say. No. Early and often. And that goes for our uber-consumer HUSBANDS, too! :)
However, one of our boys was a total Early Bird, who was up at 4am every morning, and once he could turn on the TV, he became an ‘Infomercial Zombie.’
It wasn’t unusual for him to wake me up in the wee hours asking if he could use the phone and my credit card. It’s funny now; not so much so back then, LOL!
With no cable or satellite, commercials on TV around here are pretty mundane -— the latest mattress sale, local car dealers, etc. Of course the national ads are there, but since program pickin’s are slim, the box isn’t on that much.
Her Santa wish list pretty much reflects the lack of inundation as much as it reflects Mommy and Daddy’s willingness to use the word NO.
