Death to Elmo!

Dear Son was into Elmo oh so briefly. The sentiment was gone by the time Son reached the ripe ol' age of 2 1/2 years. While anything and everything Elmo has generally been banished from the house, a hooded Elmo bath towel remains. I grabbed it last night after Son's bath and popped it over his head before he knew what hit him. As soon as he realized, the protest began, "Ohhhhhhhhhhhh! I HATE Elmo! I hate Elmo because he doesn't involve GUNS!"

Transformers have LONG outlived Elmo in this little boy's favor. I think Transformers have enjoyed a year on the pedestal so far. At the moment, the boy (in his 3 1/2 year old big boy status) covets a Bumble Bee helmet and blaster gun more than anything else.

I think I should have at least kept that 28" Elmo doll around for target practice!

Ha ha, they grow through those phases so fast don't oldest is almost 4 and he is stuck on Curious George and the Land Before Time videos right now, he left Elmo in the dust too. Dinosaurs in his world are SO cool, he will take me step by step through the whole video, with sound affects and all from beginning to end...lets just say it was cute the first time. He does tolerate his brothers watching Elmo (some times) and I think he secretly still like him, but won't admit it, you know cause he's bigger now.

Oh our two Z's are so much alike!
Mine likes to sleep with his "shooting stick!"
As for Elmo, I have to admit, I kind of hate that manic red monster myself. (Don't tell anyone I said so.)
