Hiya!

I gave in. The peer pressure was too much to handle. Everyone else is doing it, why not me, right? What can I say...I crumbled.

I am attempting a 365 blog. I will probably do it on Flickr too, since I will already have the pictures and everyone on THERE is doing one too. So I am dubbing my 365 Flogr. Dont strain yourself thinking to make sense of how I came up with that. I really dont know either.

Battle #2: Toys in stores that AREN'T TOY STORES...

My friend and I went to Old Navy today. I had to return a shirt (which, of course, I forgot in the car and was too lazy to drag the kids back out with me to get the bag) and wanted to look at a few more shirts.

We were in line, innocently waiting to be checked out. Then I see it...RIGHT THERE, right on the level of a child in their shopping cart, was a basket of stuffed animals. These Old Navy guys are sneaky. Placing these lovable, incredibly cute, knit, plush stuffed animals, who offer nothing but love and affection to your children, right in the reach of their little, greasy, grabby hands.

And you know what happens when you give a kid a toy...

Meet our newest friend...Pinky the Hippo...

Old Navy is great at marketing to the little ones, for sure! I have more than one Old Navy football!
