Manic Mom's Mental Myriads

Stop by and have a laugh from Manic Mom's Mental Myriads on Motherhood, and some other stuff too, but mostly motherhood, wifehood, thoughts on writing, etc. No politics will be discussed here or geography, and I will not be solving any mathematical equations. Just some BS on whatever I feel like blogging on...

Fake Poo

The Balloon Fairy visits each of my kids the evening before their birthdays, so they wake up to a room full of balloons. Tukey and I spent an hour in his room this a.m. having a balloon fight. He was in Heaven with how fun it was.


And then...
Hands down, the best birthday gift for a four-year old--




Except for when I stuck the fake tongue in my mouth and pretended it was coming off, then Tukey seriously did gag and rush to the bathroom because he almost had to throw up!

Alani--when IS your birthday? You going to the Last Fling this weekend? Isn't the balloon thing cool? I don't know how I thought of it one year, but my parents didn't do it for me.

Joel--Alani can get the balloons, and she'll give you the Poo.

Tommy--Who says it's DOG Poo?

LOL!

Great gift ideas, Stephanie. Can't think of much that would be more perfect for a boy his age. Our nephew's five, but I don't think his parents would approve of our giving him something like that. Too bad. Hope he had a great birthday. And the balloons are a terrific idea.

Love the balloon thing!

That set is awesome. I bought a set last year around Halloween for Kiddo. As soon as my husband saw them he had to have a set for himself. He took them to work and used each item in different ways. He totally got a couple people with them. Ha! I totally grossed out though when I first touched each item... I did not expect them to feel quite so real. Not that I've ever touched a brain before. ;)

You will not believe how worth the $3.99 it was for that gift set of gross items!!! It has been so much fun to play with--everybody wanted to touch and play with them. Can you imagine if they made an "adult" kit with even grosser stuff!!! Ugh.

My favorite is the tongue. A one-year old was over last night and I kept trying to put it to his lips because it is about the size of a little kid's tongue. Gross, but definitely so worth the entertainment value!

A month after I bought that set for Kiddo my niece was up here visiting. The two of them had a ball throwing the tongue up in the air - it would stick to the wall or ceiling and then fall down. They thought it was awesome and totally hilarious.

Those things are too much -- when my mom saw them even she had to touch them and she laughed and laughed about them. Maybe not all that surprising, but my grandmother also was laughing hysterically over them and that is a bit of a shocker. :)

If I ever have kids I am sooo stealing that idea! Thanks for visiting my newer blog. Maybe some time check out my other one: http:trivialtiffairs.blogspot.com
Thanks for the positive feedback, first visitor!

evercurious--you wanna steal the fake poo idea or the balloons?? LOL, probably both, right!!!! I swear we are fighting over who gets to play with that sticky tongue! In fact, it may end up in hubby's ice water tomorrow a.m.!
