Best seven bucks I ever spent....

I babysat for Andrew today. After lunch both boys started getting a little cranky. I remembered this little treasure that I picked up on clearance at Marshalls for $7. I was planning to give it to Sam as a reward for say, pooping on the potty SOMEDAY....Instead, I gave it to him right then, for being cranky....To say it was a hit would be the understatement of the year. They played with it peacefully for almost two hours.

Sam played with it for another hour after Andrew went home. After three hours straight he said, "Mommy, this isn't so much fun anymore." Ya think?

Aren't you glad that you saved it back. Nice move, mom.

Once I wrapped up my kids books and would get them out occasionally to give them a present. They were so excited for the gift and would act like they had never seen the book before. Then when we started to read it they'd get this suspicious look in their eye like 'Hey, I've seen this before.'

Eventually they figured me out. But it was fun while it lasted:)
