We bought some stuff at GAP when the cashier informed us of the GAP Rockstar event at Mercato. When V heard the word rockstar he immediately declared he wants to go.
April 14 came and we headed off to one of our my favorite mall Mercato. The organizers asked us to line-up the only problem with this was no one from GAP was there to look after the line and it was quite chaotic with some parents arguing over who was there first.
Finally after spending 40 minutes waiting it was V’s turn to have his rockstar make-over. He had wanted his hair up with colors sprayed on them like the other kids before him. All the time he was looking at this 2 yr old (I think) boy who was crying his lungs out while one of the ladies tried to fix his hair who wanted to give up already but the Mama insisted/instructed that she put more gel here and spray more colors. By this time you could here comments from other parents to stop the makeOver for the little boy and let him rest. V couldn’t help but speak out as well “Mama wawa the boy is crying he does not like it” If i were the parent I would have not insisted on the make-over because clearly my son was not happy. Oh well…
After the make-over kids were asked to line-up again to have their photo’s taken and oh my some parent’s just couldn’t wait giving instructions to kids to move up when clearly there was no longer any space. One of the host kept reminding parents and kids to not push and not go up the stage (for parents) since it would be dangerous.
Event’s like this are great since kids really have fun but parents most of the time forget to behave. At the end of the day V had fun and didn’t want us to touch his hair.
