Last weekend we visited my daughter and her family. She wanted us to help them get some painting done. Translate: Jim painted and I got to play with my granddaughter Lily. Lily's latest toy-of-the-month are "little people" and all the accessories.
No, my granddaughter is not into midgets.
But the Fisher-Price Little People.
Aah. (Shaking your heads like you know exactly what I am talking about!)
When it was Lily's nap time, it gave Grandma some time to play on her own.
And arrange things in rows.
Like three blue elephants (not to be confused with Three Blind Mice).
and three yellow lions.
Here is a parade of little people.
Let's take a closer look at these little people, shall we?
First off, there's ALWAYS one in every crowd that has to go against authority. (Like the kid who sticks up his middle finger in a class photo.) I told all these little people to face forward. Can you see the idiot who is facing backwards? Yeah. Like I said. One in every crowd.
I was happy to see that Lily is an equal opportunity 2 1/2 year old. You see that her little people are well-diversified. All the white arrows point to her well-mixed crowd: young, old, black, Asian, and even a redneck or two. And the yellow arrows? Those two are bullies! Just look at those expressions! My son-in-law was highly insulted. He said, "Why do they always have to make the red-headed kid a bully?" (He has dark red hair.)
So, what say you? You want to jump on this crazy train?
Stay tuned. Tomorrow I have a story about the Fisher Price farmer in the dell. Takes on a whole new meaning when we say, "The Farmer takes a Wife."
