My girls are in love with the little mini beanie babies that come with the McDonald’s happy meals right now (yes, I bought them a happy meal, calm down). Ellie got a pink elephant and promptly named him “Boo”.
At the closing party for the BlogHer14 conference I just attended in San Jose, CA, McDonald’s happened to be the sponsor – so guess what Mama brought home for the girls? You got it… beanie babies galore. (And I didn’t even have to consumeÂ a millionÂ happy meals to score all of the goodies!)
SO, becauseÂ we really don’t have a need for 19 extra mini elephants… we decided to bring a bag-o-beanies to a friend’s bbq this week and share with the other kiddos we know. Ellie was SO excited to show everyone the swag… so to the first adult she saw when we arrived, she shouted,
“HEY! WE BROUGHT A TON OF BOOS FOR EVERYONE!”
Which, while still appropriate for our group of friends… probably not the best thing for my 3-year-old to be shouting.
