Look ‘er in the Eye

by Telling Dad on July 14, 2010

Once again, YouTube’s choice of screenshot has me with my eyes closed. Either I blink WAY too much or YouTube is having fun with me. Anyhow, what follows is my foray into vlogging without any particular reason behind it.

Excuse my co-host. She obviously isn’t aware of show etiquette.

LMAO Ok first off I am with you! If you stop playing with a toy, then it's fair game! You snooze you lose! If you don't like that then that is YOUR problem and NOT someone else's.

2nd off I really think that Dora looks a lot like you. I sure hope Heather beat Dora's mommy before bringing her home.

People never cease to amaze me in situations like that.. regardless if she had left it unattended or not she didn't need to be bogarting all the plastic food!

Dora is a bit scary.. however I did like that you color coordinate your daughters.. ;)

And that's why I generally don't like other people's kids. The parents are nuts, and teach them crazy things. The girl wasn't playing with them. The cart had been abandoned, and therefore it was fair game after 10 minutes of nonplay.

I think Dora's the reason your transmission died too. That's a scary doll. Reminds me of Chuckie. I hope she doesn't come to life in the middle of the night. Dolls and clowns are creepy.

And nevermind that this happened at a Childrens Museum and not in that little girl's personal playroom. That none of the plastic food was hers to begin with. egad

Oh, but make sure you look Dora in the eye and tell her how angry you are about her blowing out your transmission though. She should be good for a full reimbursement.

Hahahaha! Yeah, I noticed afterwards that I looked Dora in the eye…that I was talking down to a doll.

Help me. :)

Gena – I had nothing to do with Dora coming home with us, you can blame Greg's family for that one.

My husband stumbled into my office when I was watching this. His review: "The story was eh but everything else going on while he was telling the story was GREAT! The story was the chip to the salsa."

I totally agree that this father needs to teach his daughter how to share. I'm sure he has the best of intentions trying to teach him daughter how to express herself but it was misapplied in this situation.

Okay…wait…why was there a grocery store in the petting zoo? Do the animals go shopping? Did I miss something. Those bells are super cool! I want them. And your daughter is ADORABLE! But Dora not so much. She kinda freaked me out. I think she wants to eat me AND the grapes and broccoli…
