Me: You’ve been such a good boy, you can get a new toy when we go to Target. 4Yo Son: A new toy!? Me: Yes, how about a new puzzle. 4YO Son: I don’t want a puzzle, I want “Doggy Doo”. Me: “Doggy Doo” ? 4YO Son: Yes, I saw it on Cartoon Network. Me: What is “Doggy Doo”? 4YO Son: It’s a doggy like Weiner that goes poo, poo. Me: I’m not getting you a doggy that poo-poos. You got two doggies that poo-poo all day long. 4YO Son: But I want “Doggy Doo”! I want to play with “Doggy Doo”. Me: Let’s take a walk outside in the backyard, there’s plenty of “Doggy Doos” to play with.
The TAKE AWAY: He didn’t think the trip to the backyard was funny. I didn’t think the toy “Doggy Doo” was real. And for the record, he got a puzzle.
