Recently, I was a bad mom. A really bad mom. I told my daughter if she continued to be a good girl, I would go to the Disney Store to buy her a Mulan costume for Halloween. So every day, she was very well-mannered and on her best behavior, both at home and at school (although expected, even without the bribe).
The time came to buy her Mulan costume and I was very much excited for her because it was the day we had all been waiting for. It was five days before Halloween and I just knew that no other girls would want to be Mulan and it would be heavily discounted because it would be excess stock.
Boy, was I wrong and it was the biggest retail wake-up call ever.
I walked in and started looking for the costume and couldn’t find any. So I asked for a team member’s assistance and they took me to the corner where the only costumes I saw was for a pirate, some plastic character (whatever that was), and an overflow of Jasmine tops and pants (too risque for my four year-old).
