This is a balloon fish on a balloon fishing pole. Did you know such a thing was even possible? Look at his eyes! A lady at Applebees made it for Punkin while we waited for our food. He did not understand AT ALL what it was or why he couldn't have it ASAP. But he did have fun flinging it about the table and dragging it behind him in the parking lot. But because he kept trying to eat the balloon, I wouldn't let him have it in the car. This caused a ridiculous blowout that lasted at least 7 minutes and resulted in two hits to mommy and numerous hits to himself. At one point he hit himself with one hand pretty hard, and then stopped screaming, looked at his hand, and made a face that read, "Why'd you do that?"
I'll let you see for yourself why Oma said he has balls. Silly Oma.
Now this is the phallic part if you ask me. The pink balls are supposed to be the reel.
Oh we were a sight today. I went in to the grocery store at 7pm. I admit that I was stretching the limits of Punkin's patience and tolerance, especially considering we had just been out to dinner with my parents. I went in for mini marshmallows and chocolate chips. It's for a S'more dessert, okay? I came out with mini marshmallows, three bags of chocolate chips, graham crackers (just in case I didn't have enough), fudge brownie mix (duh), frosting (for the extra graham crackers...if my sugar levels reach dangerous lows???), a bottle of laundry detergent (I saw it was on sale as I chased Punkin down the isle after I placed all of my disguised sugar on the counter) a two year old hanging off my right arm (quite literally hanging--he decided every three steps to lay down on the floor as I desperately grasped his hand), and an open purse (filled with board books, diapers, crayons, a ducky blanket, and a sippy cup) off my left hand (which was also carrying the "food" and the detergent). My saving grace? I went to pick up Punkin, and I accidentally tickled him. He almost jumped out of my arms (which he didn't want to be in anyway) and squealed so loud the lady in front of us turned around and laughed. Lesson One: God's grace and wisdom comes in many forms, including a sense of humor. Lesson Two: No matter how many things you are buying at the store, no matter how short a time you will be there, always ALWAYS opt for a cart.
