Yesterday I was in the car when Thomas says to me, "Hey Momma, I want to do THAT." I turn to look and I realize he is pointing to the toliet paper that I had bought during the triumphant Fred Meyer trip. (Now, why is that still in the car? Oops.) So, I say something like, "What Thomas?" He points to the toliet paper and says again, "I want to do that."
Have you ever even noticed what the sweet bear is doing? It looks pretty fun to a 2 year old but it isn't exactly what I would call family friendly advertising!
Here's how the rest of the conversation went.
(M) "Oh, you want to do THAT, huh?"
(T) "Yes, I doooo." (M) "Well, see...only bears can do that." (T) "Oh."
That was end of the conversation. It wasn't exactly the most honest answer. It was as creative as I could get at the time. I was not about to try to explain advertising to a 2 year old while driving (and enjoying my beloved Starbucks). I am still amazed that the answer worked for Thomas!
