Parenting and family, served with a shot of vodka
My smallest fry has been a little under the weather the past few days, so we watched a little extra TV. After her favorite show, Peppa Pig, we saw a commercial for a new toy: Lalaloopsy’s Diaper Surprise doll.
My first thought was: I know this thing is not aimed at me, but I want nothing to do with any diaper surprises, directly or indirectly. My youngest is potty training, I’m hoping those days will soon come to an end.
So, I continue to watch this commercial to find out exactly what the surprise entails. According to the commercial, the doll “magically poops charms!” Just feed the baby some water, press its bellybutton and it will crap out a charm that your child can then hang on a bracelet and wear around.
I can just imagine this little girl going to school to show off her bracelet, and someone goes, “Oh, so cute! Where did you get it?”
Nice try, Lalaloopsy. I’m certainly not going to teach my little lady that awesome things happen in diapers… that’s exactly what we’re working away from at the moment. Furthermore, any jewelry she wears will not be generated in anyone’s nether regions.
Thank you, and good night.
