I got to spend an hour with this little guy last weekend:
Now that is some serious blonde cuteness right there.
Little Elliot was adorable and agreeable in every way. I kind of wanted to take him home with me.
But it’s probably good that he’s not my kid, actually.
Because I’d never be able to say “no” to a face like that:
I’d say “yes” to his every whim. Our house would just be stacked to the rafters with puppies and ponies and balloons and candy.
You know, as a life-long, native Minnesotan, I’d really like to tell you that seeing this out my window this morning — on today, the 11th day of spring — didn’t bother me:
I mean, I’d really like to tell you that.
But I can’t.
There are oh-so-many reasons not to let your kids eat at McDonald’s, you know?
And really, we try to avoid it. But occasionally, we get sucked into the fast/easy/playland-ness of it. We know it’s not healthy, but there we are … nuggets and chocolate milk in hand.
However, I now have one more frightening reason to not let your kids eat at McDonald’s:
This is the Happy Meal toy that one of my kids received.
And I know it’s a character from a movie, but still … that is just downright creepy.
McDonald’s must have done their market research, though, because the kids still like it.
