Isaac has to get creative

Hey guys, Isaac again. Mom and Dad are working on getting out of debt in anticipation of my little brother and sister coming and that means there has to be some cuts! I mean it is not like they're going to get a bailout from Congress or anything. So the first program to be cut, toys. Mom and Dad said I would have to make do with a mixing bowl.

I am not happy.

But I guess I will have to make it work. Daddy tried to show me an easy way to play with the mixing bowl by wearing it as a hat.

I politely tell Dad that I don't want to look like a dork. I can't believe he tried to put that on my head.

Well it looks like Mom and Dad are serious and going through with this plan of cutting the toy budget. Maybe I can come up with something if I just sit here long enough. Think, think, think.....ah man this works for Winnie the Pooh .... Think, think, think.

Well Mom and Dad don't know but I took a spoon before they tried to get rid of it on E-Bay. Maybe just maybe if I hit the top of the mixing bowl with the spoon. Just like this.....

BANG! BANG! BANG! CRASH! CRASH! Yeah this is fun. This will teach Mom and Dad to not buy me toys..... Ha Ha Ha.

Mom is now complaining about a headache. If I keep this up, maybe I will get more toys and they will cut something else, instead.

What!!!! They decided to cut the food budget instead. I guess this is all I get to eat. My one poor bowl of ..... nothing?

Well I guess since they aren't going to buy me more toys and they're cutting the food budget, I am starting to get the point. In fact I am inspired by their determination. I am even getting in the act. I am going to use this mixing bowl to get a jump start on potting training to save on diapers.

Hmmm. You must also be budgeting your letter use on the blog; otherwise you'd be using "they're" instead of "their". . . . Thank goodness the cuteness budget is unaffected!

Grammar Pat...I hope I got all the corrections. Thanks for the catch. I don't want Mom and Dad to know that I have trouble with grammar already.

Love Isaac

I am laughing uncontrollably! This is the funniest thing I've ever read! The picture of Isaac with the mixing bowl/potty training bowl is priceless!
