So Helpful

My oldest is really into watching commercials. I think it's because they spread the news about all the great, new, must have toys out there. Lately, however, he has started to find a few things that he thinks I need. This was our conversation a few weeks ago.

"Mom! Mom! Come here!"

I walk in to see a commercial for ProActive face stuff. David is all excited so I'm somewhat confused. Where are the toys?

"It says it will make your skin nice and smooth. I bet it can get rid of your armpit darts!! "

And if this was not enough, last night he told me to "Write down this number FAST! It will make your teeth all nice and white instead of all yucky and yellow".
I need to stick to PBS where there are no commericals!

Oh, Amy, my Hannah (age 7) does this, too! Apparently, my laundry is not clean enough, because she's always pointing out the Oxy ads. Actually, she recommends quite a few cleaning products - hmmmm...

You have to be so proud. Whatever happened to the children of yesteryear who thought their mothers the smartest, most beautiful in the world??? LOL
