A Real American Hero


My friend called me Tuesday afternoon from Target. We were just chit-chatting like we always do when she asks if either of my kids needed a bathing suit. Little has at least 4, so that's a no. GG has 2. She wasn't with me when I bought them, which means they naturally do not fit.

I asked her how much the suit were and she said 8 bucks. Sign me up! I told her I was packing the kids up and we'd meet her there. She said she snagged one she thought was cute and would show me when we got there. Just call her when we were there. Ah, the beauty of cell phones!

We get there and GG is in heaven! She loves clothes shopping so when I told her to walk around and pick out whatever she liked, I was then proclaimed to be the best mom ever. Well, maybe not, but she was still excited! She finally picked out a pink 2 piece with butterflies. She tried it on and it fit to a T. Score!!!

Now, if you have more than 1 kids, you know that when you get something for one, the other expects something as well.

While GG was trying on her suit, my friend took Little Dude over to look at toys. She needed birthday ideas from him. Assuming I let him make it to 5 next month. It will be tough!

When we met them over by the toys, she pointed out what he said he wanted. He was drooling over some GI Joe mask and sword/missile shooter thing-a-ma-bob.

What I told Little Dude~ you have a birthday coming up. Put it on your list.

What I meant to say~ Are you freakin kidding me? How do you possibly need another toy?! It's not small, it makes noise, and quite frankly, that mask is a little creepy!

And then I saw the price.

Real American Hero

It was on clearance for $3.51

Seriously, how could I NOT buy it for him?!

And now I have my pwn little American Hero!

Real American Hero

Thankfully it's not a loud toy by any means. I keep telling him how cool he looks. GI Joe is an army man and he's so excited that now he's one, too.

What I mean to say~ Quit shooting the missiles at your sister!!!!

Until next time....

OH I hear ya momma. IF I buy for one I have 2 others coming close on his heels. OH see I couldn't let my boys have that, they would be having sword fights in the house, and one would get hurt, then I would have to scream because they have only been told a blue million times not to swing it AT anybody.. see yeah. But score on the cost and the bathing suit

HAHAHA! I love little Dude's Sword pose. Not only will he definitely make it 5 months with that pose, he's a great candidate when to protect himself when if he should ever hear my "watch your balls" morning call!!!

That would be tough to pass up. I found a transformers costume on clearance for $7 and couldn't resist. My son wears it all the time. It's hilarious.
