I had caught a great deal online for a cutesy Fisher-Price Little People nativity set, and was very excited when it arrived the other day just in time to prevent a toddler mutiny.
Having grown increasingly bored with his massive toy collection, my son had begun disassembling our entertainment center and playing Frisbee golf with our DVDs.
When I unwrapped the set, he immediately climbed down from his precarious perch atop the television, put down the Wii sensor bar and came running to investigate.
He smiled and cooed with I pressed the angel on top of the stable and it began to play music. He gave kisses to Mary and Joseph, and laughed happily with the three wise kings.
For about five minutes.
The rest of this week?
