Bruce thinks it's really funny to give other people's children annoying, noise making toys. Whoever got our children this one takes the cake, I think. Not only does it make noise unbidden, but it also parrots whatever noises it hears. It mocks you by saying everything you say back at you, but in a slightly higher pitch. This produces the most wonderfully annoying affect in that Justice feels compelled to scream at the top of his lungs when ever this thing is around. And people, don't say that "at least the batteries will eventually run out." My children have long ago figured out how to replace batteries in their toys by themselves.
I recall a time when I was particularly grouchy with my children for not cleaning up their messes. This was one of those times when you cringe at the thought of a neighbor being outside and overhearing your insanity. I yelled "Clean up your Crap!!" Mark was holding that dumb parrot thing, which yelled back "Clean up your Crap!! Clean up your Crap!!" I just love hearing exactly how mad I sound. (I know, I know, another potty word, I am so going to the bad place!)
I wouldn't be surprised at all if Bruce finds one of these to give to one of our relatives' children for their next birthday. Whoever did this one deserves an award or something. You got us good that time!
This spot is reserved for my a select few favorites, which are guaranteed to be wholesome and wonderful in every way. EVERYONE should check these things out!
Of course I love the scriptures, but you already know that, right?
