Zombie Slayer

Standard

You might remember in my Spring Break post that Jake and I went out for a movie and dinner without Doodle in tote. What you may not remember (probably because I neglected to tell you) is that in between the movie (Jack the Giant Slayer) and dinner (Olive Garden) we stopped at Barnes & Noble to kill some time and look around.

Now, if this were, say, three and a half years ago that Jake and I had time to kill at Barnes & Noble, we likely would have spent all of our time in the New Age, Religion, Philosophy, and Sci-Fi sections, grabbed a half-dozen new books or so, and went along our merry way. It was not three and a half years ago, however. It was four days ago. Four days ago (as well as every day since three and a half years ago when we found out we had made a baby) we were completely obsessed with our Doodle. Sure, we spent a good fifteen minutes in the New Age/Religion/Philosophy section and gawked at the outrageous prices of new books nowadays. And Jake did mosey over to Sci-Fi where he found THE book that he needs next in his series, but I told him we could find a used one at a fraction of the price. But then we did what is now our norm. We went over to the kiddo stuffs.

Doodle’s got tons of books – that’s not to say that he doesn’t need tons more, but there just wasn’t much that caught our eye over there. Again, the new book prices thing kind of helped with that – used books all the way! So we wandered over to their little “toy” section. Adult toys (No! Not that kind!) like Star Wars bobble heads, Mario Yahtzee, and Marvel comic stuffed heroes. All super great things, but not quite what we were looking for. Then we saw it, and we had to get it…

(Mind you, we did also end up getting a set of fruit dominoes for Doodle for counting and fruit identification purposes and a physics book on clearance for Jake, but that is not what this post is about…)

Y’all remember Doodle’s Zombie Slayer Christmas present? Well, it needed an accessory…

Zombie!

Zombie!

Putting that zombie slayer to good use.

He figured out how to kill his zombie friend with headshots all by himself, even.  Such a good boy!

    • Seriously, apart from the random temper tantrums, I can’t imagine why a toddler wouldn’t be an awesome member of a zombie apocalypse survival team… 🙂
