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.
