Heh-LO Clueless Aunt

I took the Tongginator shopping yesterday to purchase a present for her soon-to-be-five-year-old cousin M&M. The Tongginator insisted, absolutely INSISTED, on finding all manner of Hello Kitty goodness.

: Honey, why is it so important to get M&M something that's Hello Kitty? I really don't want to go to store after store after store.

TONGGINATOR: Mom! M&M absolutely ADORES Hello Kitty stuff. I HAVE to get her something Hello Kitty!

TONGGU MOMMA: She does? I didn't know that.

TONGGINATOR: (totally sighing at me) Yes, Mom. She is All About Hello Kitty. How could you not know that?!?!!

I'm not sure whether this conversation proves that I am a terrible aunt or that the Tongginator is an excellent cousin. Possibly both.

I stayed up late to avoid the Neti Pot nightmares, but now that I read today's post I can go to bed in peace. Dreaming about Hello Kitty should be fairly safe. :)

HELLO TM! Where have you been?!!!

You aren't a bad aunt TM - and T IS a good cousin! But - this is about one of the true joys of children - reminders for us to remember the IMPORTANT things in life! ;)

hugs - aus and co.

If you're still looking for stuff, the dollar section at Target almost always has tons of Hello Kitty items.

Haha... "all about Hello Kitty" eh? Was it just my middle school that every girl had a "Sanrio" character that was theirs? Bad Matz Baru....Kerokerokeropi... :) LoLo came home from HK smitten with "little burnt toast." Such crazy things!

LOL... or possible they change their "favorites" daily!! I'm just sayin.... I know a four year old who pulls the same thing:)

Hope you are feeling better! it has been one heck of a winter for you.

I guess it depends on whether M&M really likes Hello Kitty, or whether T does! that happens a lot around here.

Heh, that's funny. I clicked on this post thinking it was going to be a story about an Aunt who said something insensitive about adoption.

What a sweet story. We love Hello Kitty too. :-)

Knowing how much you "love" Hello Kitty I'm sure you loved spending money on anything Hello Kitty related. Target, Toys R Us, and even Wal-Mart have a good selection - 25 years old and she's still going strong.

Hoping you are feeling better my friend and that God will heal you!

Both. Definitely both! But isn't it great that with T's help, you will look like a fabulous aunt?
