I've fallen down on gift-buying, what with traveling to California (what, I forgot to tell you went there for a week?!) and then Button's birthday party (go Amazon prime and photoshop at 11pm the night before the party...and wait - HE'S FOUR YEARS OLD?!) and all of a sudden it's the day before E's birthday, but he already opened gifts from his family the night after Button's party, so it'll just be us and the kids tonight - low-key dinner at the house and some gift opening.
So while I've horribly slacked (I only have one cool gadget thingy I happened to see while in Staples last week buying a computer monitor for work...) Button is on top of it all (with influence/help from Mom).
We went to the $1 store this past weekend with some money and a mission:
Button gets to pick whatever he wants to get for Daddy's birthday.
So we start down the first aisle - and the excitement drove him to grab one of the first things he saw -
"Oooooo how about soap for Daddy?"
(Soap = V05 conditioner. LMAO)
"Oh, look - VANILLA soap for Daddy!"
I said, "Are you sure that's what you want to get Daddy?" while trying not to crack up.
He confirmed it, and I tried to keep him from grabbing four more things, rapid-fire - pushing him through to the next aisles. (You're welcome E - you won't be getting a dish sponge or a stack of paper plates!)
So in addition to the cool gadget thingy I got him, E will be opening tonight:
- a bottle of V05 coconut hair conditioner
- a plastic dart board game
- a DOG BRUSH ("so he can brush his Rocco-dog!")
- a giant plastic magnet (but it really works!)
- and a glow TeenageMutantNinjaTurtle necklace.
