The power of advertising on tv...

is a pretty powerful thing...Last week we were sitting at the dinner table and Brenly tells us that she is freezing and that she needs to get her blanket before she can eat! She continues to say that she is always freezing when she sits down to eat! We both look at her as if she has lost her mind...but allow her to go get her blanket (she is VERY good at using EVERY excuse in the book to keep from eating...esp. when we are eating something that she isn't fond of!) so she goes and gets her blanket and sits back down at the table! She starts "picking" at her food again and says..."Last night (because any moment that is not in the here and now...is last night to her!) I saw that they were selling these blankets that have sleeves in them...they only cost 4 numbers (meaning $19.95) AND they come in different colors! They have kids sizes too! I need one so that I can wear it when we eat!" She would be referring to the "slanket" that they sell on tv! Imagine my child ordering a slanket to wear at the dinner table, so that she will eat!...OH MY...way too much tv for my oldest child!

That is so funny!! My sister keeps joking that she is going to get one...and I wouldn't put it past her!!

And you are right, kids watch one commercial and it is like they have the whole thing memorized!

This is hysterical because Cooper told me the other day, "Mommy, I need that blanket with sleeves on it!" :)
