Consumerism is the De-bil!

June 15, 2010

Did you hear in the video how he wants a lot of stuff but just can’t remember what? I can only hope that depth of short term memory loss will work to my benefit.

In case you didn’t catch it, “Iwaagitdat” is Zach-cretion for “I want to get that.”  You can hear him chiming this phrase in every room in the house with a television during Spongebob, Olivia, or Max and Ruby. He does this even if there’s no one there to hear him.  Because the Wishing Star is listening.

We’ve got three birthdays for three-fourths of our children coming up over the next month, so  they yelp Iwaagitdat if they see anything remotely interesting enough to play with for more than five minutes and also made in China. As I write, Chloe just  sat down next to me and said Iwaagitdat three times during one Barbie commercial.  Let’s see.  As of today, the tally for Iwaagitdat items will cost me about $312,654.87.

Wait–Zachary yelled out a succession of Iwaagitdats just now.  He wants a Transformer, Legos, a child-sized Hummer, a race track, and Tampax tampons.

    DO NOT get him the tampons. No good could possibly come of that.

    Oh consumerism! The thing I’m really trying not to get my son in to. It’s so hard to do that with all the commercials on television for the latest toys, breakfast cereals, and fast foods. I just resort to videos for him and it keeps the advertisers out of my house. Your little guy is so cute though!!! Good luck satisfying all the kids during their birthdays.
