little teeth

Scene: Target - girl's section looking at the Nick & Nora jammies (shhh he doesn't know he's in the girl's section)

Me: Jack - will you wear these jammies with the candy canes and sock monkeys?
Jack: Um, I don't know, they seem kind of silly to me.
Me: Well, what about these purple ones with owls on them?
Jack: Mom, owls are creepy. Did you what two animals I find creepy? Owls & dolphins Mom
Me: Why dolphins?
Jack: Mom, they creep me out cause they have those tiny little teeth. Little teeth creep me out.
Me: So is that a no on the owl jammies - because we could have matching ones, they come in my size.
Jack: That's a no.

I guess another Christmas is passing and my dream of dressing the family in matching flannel pajamas is slowly dying. Unless I want to give up and wear LEGO Star Wars printed ones.

The little teeth scare me too. But I love owls. Dolphins are odd to me, maybe its the big lump of a brain they have.

LOL!I never really thought about their little teeth, but now I won't be able to think of dolphins without being a little creeped out myself!

Well, we never had that Christmas morning of the fam dressing in matching jammies either. Somehow the vision of your Dad in a Santa Hat and Christmas print flannel doesn't seem right. But we can all dream.
