Los Papús Son Apenas Cabritos Mús altos

. We all know that dads are really just bigger
kids, but this is never more apparent when there
are toys involved.
. For my son's 5th birthday this past week, we
decided to get him some Transformers. . Since
Transformers are a bit more difficult to find out
here (meaning I can't find them at Target), I took
the kids on a little adventure to the place
parents dislike more than all the kid food places
combined - Toys R Us.
. Once we got there, I called my husband to let
him know that we going to be looking for the new
Toys that our son was coveting. . The call went
. Me: "OK, we are here looking at the
. Him: "Well, why don't you see if they have a
. Me: "Um, ok"
. I noticed that his voice sounded a little
funny and then he started talking a little faster.
. Him: "Or, you could look and see if they have
a Blasticon or a blah blah-icon or"
. I had to stop him. . I said "Honey, I realize
you had Transformers when you were younger, but
don't you think they may have changed in the past
. He was actually name dropping about toys! .
After laughing hysterically at him, he informed me
that he would pick out the toys himself, which was
fine with me.
. After my son opened his new Toys, my husband
had to show him how to put them together. . Now, I
imagine that as a young boy, part of the joy of
having a new Toy is pretending like you know how
it works, then spending the next 2 hours trying to
figure out how it actually works. . Apparently, it
works this way for the big guys too.

. I had to physically take the toy away from my
husband so my son could put it together. . I'm not
sure if my husband was more upset at the fact that
I took the Toy away from him or that he didn't get
the Toy figured out before I took it away.
. Later that evening, my son came knocking on
my door while I was working. . He knows that I am
not to be disturbed unless someone is in need of
serious medical or Mommy attention, so I answered.
. He was coming to ask me if I would get his toy
back from his dad. . It seems that Dad needed to
"show him how to properly transform" his Toy.
. I had to gently let my husband know that the
new Toys were for our son, and that he had to let
our son figure out the Toy first, unless he asked
for help. . Luckily, my son received two of the
new Toys, so now there is one for each of them.
