“Don’t make me use the cute eyes!”

Last Friday night I was running around making a list of things I needed from Wal*Mart for the weekend. Hubby and the two older boys were at the Friday night high school football game. J and I were just hanging out getting ready to make our trip to WallyWorld when J asked me what I was going to buy him during our shopping trip. I calmly, and with all the firmness I could muster, informed him in no uncertain terms that I would NOT be buying him anything on this particular shopping trip. With a heavy sigh he informed me that all his current toys were old and boring. Sorry! Not buying any new toys. I comfortably settled in with my heels firmly planted. Then he went for the jugular.

“Mom, don’t make me use the cute eyes.”

What? The cute eyes? “Bring it on”, I told him.  So he tried. He looked at me with his big, soft, brown eyes and…

I bought him two Fantastic Four action figures.

  3. Actuallly, he’s teaching a class on the ‘fine art of manipulation” down at the community college this semester.

    But honestly, I didn’t mind too much because this is the same kid who cleaned two toilets for me ealier that day.

    Yeah….my “cute eyes” routine lost it’s effect a couple of years ago…..when I got a job. Oh well.

  5. Well then, he absolutely deserved the toys! What a cutie! My dad couldn’t stand my puppy dog eyes–even now he’ll give in if I use them!!!
