Remember the Transformers my husband gave our son for his birthday? Well, I gave him a book, among other things. (Yes, he's spoiled rotten.)
I was with my sisters and parents at B&N where I purchased the book, and they thought it was a terrible idea. In fact, they laughed. Yes, it was a little gender specific, but how often are we guilty of buying something for our children because WE wanted it? Well, I wanted this book. (It's a BOOK, I tell you!)
And my husband? Well our conversation went something like this.
Him: "That's not a book."
Me: "Yes, it is."
Him: Take it back.
(But it IS a book! See?)
(For the record, my son liked it for a couple days. Maybe my daughter will appreciate it more.)
