So we went to Lowe's today, like we often do on the weekends. We were just walking along, looking for mousetraps (that's a whole 'nother story!) when little Jimmy starts kind of whimpering/whining, not really crying but definitely upset...what on earth is wrong bud? Well, I turn around and there at the end of the aisle is this:(if you click on the picture if will take you to the Lowe's web page with her description)
We had walked right by her and I didn't even think about the fact that, hey, my little guy just MIGHT be afraid of that big scary life sized thing that is motion activated and starts moving and cackling when you walk by. Nope, not me, I just walk right in front of her, and I did notice her, but i being afraid of her never even crossed my mind. I actually even thought he might be entertained. Nah ah. He was squirming and panicking and was just plain worried about her the whole rest of the time we were in the store. We walked waaaay down the front of the store to the other end where the lumber is and he was STILL looking back at her, making sure she hadn't followed us. We even let him hold the mousetraps and told him they were witch traps, so he was safe if she came near (after trying to explain that she was pretend and she couldn't move of course). That helped a little. Then we went down an aisle and were looking at hardware for a bit and he forgot about her. As soon as we went to check out though, he spotted her and started hollering! So Jim tossed me the keys and out we went to the truck. And thus ended our first experience with Jimmy being scared of something. He has never done anything like that that I can remember, he wasn't scared of anything last year around Halloween, so I guess we have entered a new stage of awareness. Poor little guy =(
Oh and PS - I have to admit, that witch did kind of creep me out too, lol! Must be that ugly face and the fact that she is motion activated, that kind of stuff always catches me off guard a little! I mean, come on, lets look at that again shall we?
U - G - L - Y, you ugly, yeaaaah you ugly!! A face only a mother could love (or something lol). Goodnight!
The Ducklings have Arrived! - Meet our new babies! They are so adorable. Just 2 days old and cute as can be. They all arrived safely this morning and have settled in very well. We order...
