I figure my ungrateful boys already have enough toys to circle the globe. It's time to reward their creator.
But instead, Aunt Mary seized upon Joey's request and appeared at my house last night with this:
|I'm starting to think I'm her least favorite sister-in-law.|
That's right. A cuckoo clock. Because nothing says love like a chirping bird every fifteen minutes. Apparently, this was Joey's sole request to his fairy godmother.
Yet what Aunt Mary didn't realize when she ordered the gift was the nature of the creature that would be leaping out from behind its little blue doors. This was no delicately carved forest bird. Why, just have look:
Aunt Mary's cuckoo clock has a deranged chicken in it. Somehow, this is all very fitting.
Later that evening, I wondered where my son got the idea for such a thing. It's not like we have anyone in the family who owns a cuckoo clock. But as I started putting away a few items in the pantry, it struck me:
|Relax. He eats Cheerios, too.|
Can anyone guess what Joey's favorite cereal is?
I love that my son has embraced a theme. I just wish it wasn't Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs.
