One thing I’ve learned about my child and toys is that he is completely content with small-ticket items. Don’t get me wrong, he loves his big-ticket items but I marvel at how happy he is with a 2-inch plastic whale. He seems to latch on to one toy at a time. One that just makes him feel incomplete when he leaves it at home. We took him trick-0r-treating at a local park last Saturday. They set up small stations throughout the woods sponsored by various organizations. Near the end of the path, he happened upon the ultimate treat. Brandon caught this picture which I thought was hysterical considering that he now worships this odd little toy – a shark head with a fish in its mouth. It’s as if the shark head was delivered like manna from the heavens.
But I realized that I too get attached to new toys all the time. Well, maybe not toys but I have my fair share of favorite things that keep me happy. My latest?
Bounce Dryer Bar. If I had seen this in the grocery store, I highly doubt I would have purchased it. But, a friend gave me one and I L-O-V-E it. Basically, it’s a bar that sticks on the side of your dryer instead of using dryer sheets. It is supposed to between 2-4 months. I’m guessing mine will last at least four months.
Chex Mix Turtle Bars. My, oh my. I really don’t care for granola bars too much. Blame it on the worm I found in one a few years ago. But these babies are my little indulgence.
So, what’s with my obsession with bars? Huh. Anyway…let’s move on to my favorite topic…entertainment.
Modern Family. The only trouble I have with this new show is that I can’t decide which character I love the most. The characters are so well-written and the actors are perfectly cast. It’s by far my favorite. (Yes, I like Glee just like the rest of the world but the truth be told, it kinda drags on sometimes.) You can watch all the episodes here.
Jim Gaffigan: King Baby. We got this DVD from Netflix because I heard that Jim Gaffigan is pretty funny. I literally thought I was going to have to turn it off because I was getting a headache from laughing so hard. I’m not much of a bacon fan, but after watching his show, I now love bacon if only for the principle of it all.
What is your latest?
