"What's an AT-AT," you ask? It's a Star Wars vehicle. It's also something my son told me that he absolutely needed. Here's how that conversation went:
"Mommy, can I please have a motorized AT-AT?"
"I'm not spending $130.00 for a Lego set!"
"That's not expensive."
"Yes it is. Now don't nudge me about it anymore."
Then Grandpa came over - the same one who put together that model tank and got super glue all over his hands a couple of months ago. Do you remember him?
"Grandpa, will you buy me a motorized AT-AT for my birthday?"
"Sure," replied Grandpa. "Where do I get it?"
I just shook my head. Where did my well-mannered kid go, and why is it that grandparents spoil their grandchildren? I suppose I'll find the answer to that when I become a grandmother!
