is the best policy. And big blue eyes and a winsome smile don’t hurt either.

This morning, this exchange:

AM: Sean, what should we do today?

Sean: We should go to Wal-Mart and buy me some toys.

So. We did.

  1. That’s what my niece says to me. Sometimes she calls me on the phone and says, “Aunt Theresa, I think I need to get spoiled, could you come get me?” It’s adorable!

  2. Hey…the guy knows what he wants. Some adults wait most of their lives to have that kind of self-direction. Pick me up a loaf of bread and jug of 2% milk. Okay?

  3. Antique Mommy, I just came over from Big Mama’s blog. Your blog is wonderfully refreshing! And it’s soooo nice to read a blog from somebody in my age group. I was really starting to feel like the “Granny Grunt” of blogdom. Of course, I don’t have children at home (unless of course, you count my 86 year old mother), but I have grandchildren that are 5 (two of these), 3, and 17 months!

    Yes Keith! Eternal love can now be yours at Wal-Mart for about $7.99. πŸ™‚

  5. Will that work for adopted sisters? I’ve got the blue eyes, a nice smile and freckles to boot…

    And I could think of some great toys with which we could play!

  6. Yeah. I’m a sucker, too. Only mine has big melty chocolatey brown eyes and bats his long lashes at me. He doesn’t even talk yet. He doesn’t have to.

  7. Man, after six kids my answer would be, “or maybe YOU should clean up YOUR room (that we provide and we also feed you and clothe you…insert diatribe here).” Your answer was better. You son is lucky that you are his mom.

  8. Sometimes. . .well. . .sometimes it’s just as much fun for us to go to Wal-Mart and buy them some toys as it is for them. My son is, right this second, enjoying a race track rug I bought him for just that very reason–’cause I wanted him to have it.
