All She Wants for Her 4th Birthday Is...

...An Aqua Globe. Perhaps you've seen the infomercials? They're little blown glass devices that promise to water your plants PERFECTLY for you FOR TWO WEEKS. No messes! It's that easy!

I had no idea Pipsqueak knew about those, but as evidenced by this video, she has. She asked me why I wasn't buying her one. What I didn't say, but would have loved to, is, "When I can buy a Toddler Globe which consists of a little plastic device I can pop in your ass that will FEED YOU for TWO WEEKS! with NO MESSES! I'll consider it."

Until then, she's getting a princess like the rest of the girls out there. Hey, someone's got to clothe those execs at Disney.

i'm with Pip on this one. Those things are so cool. I want one too.

She is so stinking adorable. "does it look like a meatball?"

Can I keep her? Please?!

my sons LOVE those things! My 4 year old is a sucker for all things infomercial - we've tried the green bags, the craft-lite cutter, the little vacuum thing... he really wants those globes, too! We have like 2 houseplants...

Man...
and I thought all you L.A. types
were tree huggin' organic living types! Only the kids maybe? LOL

Hope she likes her princess and has a wonderful birthday!
God bless.

manalive, that's awesome. pip is pretty much the cutest child in the world, and I totally want to get her the watering doohickey.

how can you resist?

meno said...

Man, keep your eye on that one, she's a charmer.

Imez said...

But, how come you aren't going to get her one?

I mean, it kicks Sleeping Beauty's ass!

JCK said...

So funny! I'd want an aqua globe, too ...except I have a black thumb. It might not translate for people like me.

Too adorable what our little munchkins say. Happy 4th!

Will check in with you soon. Have a safe flight.

JCK said...

P.S. Featured you on Monday.

PJ said...

How can you resist such a request??? C'mon. Get her an aqua globe. And some cute little rubber boots to dig in the garden!!!

She is adorable!!!

Baldodad said...

Tell me where to get such an item and it's hers.
Seriously, not being a TV watcher, I've never seen them, but the way she sells it is too much for words. I think once Baldo gets over his hatred of girls, the two of them are gonna be big-time buddies....
Enjoy blogher. Bmom went a couple of summers ago and had blast.
Aloha,
J

PS. Meatballs!

I am impressed with her deft avoidance of "Do you believe everything you hear?"

Um

"Does this look like a meatball?"

Brilliant!

Valerie said...

damn straight those kooks @ Disney need clothes.

just last week one exec is down to her last dozen Jimmy Choos.

Gretchen said...

How will you live w/yourself if you don't buy it? You might as well call yourself a dream crusher. ;)

What a cutiepie. I hope the party is/was fun.
