A Really Cool Gift

My brother isn't the only one with gifting-skills. I let the kids pick out their own gifts with their own money for my brother's soon-to-be-three-year-old boy. I tried to guide them with "Thats nice, but not in your budget-range" and "Thats nice, but he's only about three" and "Thats nice, but his mama won't let him have it with good reason"

They ended up with a wonderful round of gifts that Jay REALLY enjoyed. He carried the little synthasizer through the house rocking out. He refused to take off the seriously-orange hunting cap, even clamping it to his head all the way through SundaySchool. But the best was what Ron gave him. A little fire-truck rescue-type vehicle. That has three buttons. That make ... interesting ... sounds. Loudly.

Sound one: A vroom-vrooming sound.
Sound two: A siren.

(Duh-duh ... Duh-duh ...)

Sound three: A rather grim sounding man shouting "Put your hands up or I'll shoot!"

And the extra-interesting part is that if its 5:00am and you're really sleepy and your small child sneaks up to the bed to share his new toy, odds are you'll wake up really ... grumpy. And in need of a drink. And maybe clean under-wear. But I didn't ask about that. TMI.


ROFLOL! Oh, so you're one of THOSE aunts!

Internet down. Computer down. Will deal with it sometime this weekend. Meanwhile, think Happy-Happy-Happy thoughts! Envision ballerina-dancing-chiwawawas! Lol. I need some sleep.

Fixing this will apparently involve either me hauling my CPU to my husband's office, OR getting a new husband. Either is a distinct possibility at this point. (Thats a joke, people, fyi) He's a sweetie. Well. Maybe not right this very specific minute. But he will be soon. He always is :)
