The boys watched regular Saturday morning cartoons yesterday, so they were exposed to commercials! Gah! Guess what they decided they needed, right away? Yep - Shoes Under.

They were fascinated. "Benjamin," I said, "You already have a drawer under your bed. It's pretty much the same thing."

"But I want one of those - with the lines (dividers) in it!" he insisted.

"Honey, you only have two pair of shoes."

"Well, I want a shoe set, then."

"You want more shoes?" I asked.

"Yeah! More shoes." Poor kid - we could probably arrange for another pair of shoes. Both boys had way more shoes back when they couldn't walk and didn't even need them.

Ha! Similar situation here about 2 weeks ago... Noggin has apparently become Nick Jr. (didn't notice because we only DVR) and Nick Jr. = Madeline (6) first exposure to commercials.

Guess what she now wants? Touch & Brush (automatic toothpaste dispenser). John duct-taped a tube of crest to the bathroom mirror, but she was not impressed :)
