No Crocodiles Or Rhinoceroseses, I Only Like Hippopotamuseses

Yesterday Darwin spilled the beans that I'm getting sea monkeys for Christmas (because the aquasaurs were not enough of a fiasco?).

Today, Griffin's been doing the whole you're gonna be so surprised Mama! and you're gonna love what I got you Mama! and full of happiness and joy.

He was telling me it's red! your favorite color! and was giggley and happy and then Darwin goes and becomes a BUZZKILL and sarcastically proclaims, "Yeah, you got mom Sea Monkeys. So what?"

Obviously, he realizes Festivus is tomorrow and is starting with the Airing of Grievances early.

Hippopotamuses like you too!

Next year maybe you don't tell Darwin what the Christmas presents hold? But, really, that's not the point. What are you going to name your sea monkeys???

Happy Festivus!

You better like those Sea Monkeys, Mommy! I tried to steer him away from them, but it was also the first actual present selected, sooo... I didn't push too hard.
By the way, when I went through my bank drive-thru yesterday, they wished me Happy Festivus.

Aw man, I totally want sea monkeys! I love how children pick out gifts they want for themselves.
