Oh, bummer

Janine was listening to Baby Bop cheer as he watched a TV commercial for some toy. He yelled at Janine over the back of the couch that he wanted some toy. She told him that he could save up his money and buy it.

The commercial ended with the disclaimer "must be 18 years old or older to order."

Baby Bop stopped cheering and groans "Oh, bummer!"

Janine said "Good parent that I am, I'm not going to explain what that means. I'm just going to let him think that you have to be 18 years old to own that toy."

Yeah, it is pretty funny.

I suppose at some point we should explain that while an adult needs to order the toy, we could order it for him.

So far our older children haven't spilled the beans!
