It happened at Target…so many of our mishaps do…we were shopping for a blanket.
All of little M’s blankets are baby ones, and are so short on her, so she was in the market for a new one.
I was thinking it would be simple.
We would go in, grab a throw in the color of little M’s choosing, and be done with it.
I love Target, but sometimes it is not my friend.
We came away with a blanket all right…but it did not work out the way I thought it would.
I pulled our cart up to the kids bedding section and grabbed a couple solid color blankets off the shelf.
“Look, they have all these colors,” I told her, “which one do you like?”
But she wasn’t listening…because she had spotted some other blankets close by.
She spotted the Spiderman. “Look mommy! Spiderman! That’s what I like! It matches my panties!”(Yes it does…I don’t want to talk about it.)
The picture on the blanket looked a little violent, so I told her we weren’t getting that one, but it didn’t matter…
“Look mommy! Vader!” She jumped up and down with delight “I LOVE VADER!!”
I couldn’t see it, and she had to tell me several times where it was, but I finally found it back behind some other throw blankets. I pulled it out, and little M went crazy.
I asked her if she was sure she didn’t want the pink throw to match her outfit. She said “no thank you.”
And we went home with a Darth Vader blanket.
And the girl was happy.
She also noticed while we were there that there is bedding for her big girl bed. I am going to have to figure out a way to make a girly Darth Vader room if this continues…
