When It's Fun to Have a Boy

I've been a little obsessed lately with vintage robots and wooden toys. Really cool wooden toys are easy to find for infants, but there's not a whole out there for the almost-fives. Lucas begged me to stop at one of our favorite locally owned toy shops today and we picked up these awesome retro stacking robots. They had some beat-up looking ones on the train tables, but when we went to look for a package to purchase, the store was out. One of sales clerks told us they'd have more in a few weeks. She tracked us down a few minutes later with a box in her hands. Lucas, in his trademark bull-horn of voice, starting telling her she was his hero for finding these robots. TOTAL SCORE!

The alien push car is actually part of the Brio train sets. Super cute.

Also?! I'm watching American Idol right now, and there just never seems to be any shortage of tone deaf folks who think they've got what it takes to be a superstar. Mind boggling. Don't these people have mamas that love them enough to NOT want them to be made fools of. I'm all about fostering one's dreams, but if my kid couldn't sing his way out of a paper bag, I wouldn't feed him to the wolves like that.

I didn't watch American Idol, but I saw some clips online. Ryan Seacrest tried to high five a blind dude? He needs to pay more attention. Although, I did watch the clip over and over because it was sort of funny.
