Going shopping with two kids- yeah, right!

I've already been thinking about shopping. First off, my son's birthday is in November, and Christmas follows very closely behind. I want to do something for Little Man's birthday, and the thought of going shopping for the party stuff alone has me stressed, never mind the thought of Holiday shopping...ugh.
The thing is my mother keeps telling me that I should just do all my shopping on Black Friday to knock it all out of the way. I laugh at her. I tell her that Yes, I may be up at the butt crack of dawn but it doesn't mean I want to be out shopping.
Then there's this site that lets you do your Black Friday shopping online, showing some great Thanksgiving deals. It's awesome, it even sends you alerts when new Black Friday deals are posted. Easy enough right? My favorite is the KB Toys specials, God knows that I'm going to be doing a lot of toy shopping every year now...
So is it cheating if I do all this stuff online instead of waiting in line at the stores like some poor unfortunate souls???

UGH. Any kind of shopping at all leaves me exhausted.

Good luck, though....

Ah, you found my secret! At first I'd straddle my husband with the kids and I'd go out to shop alone. In the last couple of years, I've enjoyed online shopping for most of my Christmas purchases. Start making your lists now, and order EARLY, because shipping will KILL you and your budget if you wait too long.

And it's worth it. So no, it aint cheating! I think it should be mandatory with parents of more than 1 kid. Especially when you have a UPS guy as cute as I do!
