“I just want snow-plow Thomas”

My kid is OBSESSED with Thomas the train (aka Thomas the tank engine, aka Thomas and Friends). He loves Thomas and everything Thomas. He knows all the engines, their names and numbers, which ones pull coaches, which ones pull freight cars…

He plays with Thomas, watches Thomas on TV,  forces invites me to play Thomas with him, wears Thomas clothes, eats off Thomas dishes, reads Thomas books at bedtime…

It is all Thomas all.the.time.

And frankly, I don’t get it. Except for the fact that it’s all very British and proper. That part is cute. But the rest of it I just don’t get. Seriously. Try watching an episode. It’s actually kind of boring. But what do I know…I am just mom. Plus I’m a girl. I am convinced that all little boys between the ages of 1 and 5 have some level of love for Thomas. With my kid, it borders on insanity.

Anyway, he  has wanted snow-plow Thomas since CHRISTMAS. Has been BEGGING for it. They have one at school, and he desperately wants, no, NEEDS one at home.

His birthday is coming up on Wednesday. I guess I have to find snow-plow Thomas. I hope Target still has it in stock…

“It made Ms.M Happy”

My son’s teacher was happy with him  and praised him because he dressed himself. You may wonder why he had to dress himself at school…well he “pee-peed on himself”. If Ms M can find the silver lining in my boy’s pee accident, I guess so can I.

Spending the evening with my boys last night was kind of fun – no major freak-outs. Except for my three year-old telling the baby to “get out” of his toys…And the baby kept coming back. He is persistent, that little one. I had to separate them before it came to shoving and crying. Ah boys 🙂

My husband went to Target last night which is why I was home alone with the kids. Upon returning home, he says “I can see the appeal. I get how you can spend so much time there”. uhhh….yeah! Target is awesome!!! He got his item on sale AND got a gift card. SCORE! (the score is for me, since I’ll be using the gift card)

Oh yeah, before I forget…Cyber Monday was so fun! I learned something new yesterday – EBATES!!!!!! You get cash back for shopping online through the site. Try it!! www.ebates.com I will probably be doing most of my christmas shopping online through ebates, and come February 15, 2010…cha-ching! cash money in my mailbox!!!

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, today is world AIDS day. Over 30 million people worldwide are living with and dying from HIV/AIDS. Please support research efforts, support AIDS orphanages and charities, and support those you might know that may be infected.
