Tommy goes from one thing to another, constantly. 2 things are very consistent for him. Nintendo (Mario in particular) and Game Shows (wheel of fortune and Jeopardy since he was about 6 months old could quiet the crying baby).
Well, as hubs tends to do, when Tommy LIKES something, it causes hubs to go all CRAZY and he hits ebay to find everything with that LOGO on it. Not something I mind at ALL because, they're usually really cool items.
However, as Tommy has gotten older, he doesn't like to share these things. He no longer WATCHES these shows. I've noticed that lately, he'll turn the channel on at 7 and 7:30 for a mere 2 seconds to make sure the shows are still ON, but he says "OH!!!" and changes the channel rather quickly back to... whatever was on. I don't understand this. I've tried with all of my might. For YEARS we (all 4 of us) would play gamecube around the clock. He LOVED IT!! WE loved it!! Imagine his face when we surprised the kids with a trip to NYC (we lived on Long Island at the time) to Nintendo World Store. It was awesome. But then, in Tommy's world, Nintendo was gone. NO MORE. Couldn't turn it on in front of him. He completely shut down to Nintendo.
In comes GSN. He found that channel and for the next 3 years, it was the center of our life. I didn't mind too much. I love game shows too. I love him being able to RELATE to the excitement of winning, and the let down of losing. Even if they were severe repeats of old 70's game shows. Those were his favorite!! Oh The Match Game (O_O) ... Richard Dawson and his kisses lol He used to LOVE when I'd play along online and get our high score on the tv!!

This week, hubs decided to clean out his locker at work. He used to work midnight shifts. The guys would split up the shifts and when they'd go on break, they could nap. So, since Jeopardy was dead, hubs took Tommy's old Jeopardy blanket. I forgot we even OWNED this. I honestly don't even remember BUYING this..lol Anyhow, he brought it home since he doesn't work midnight shifts anymore. So, I wash it (3 years in a locker.. um, yea.) and while Tommy was getting ready for bed last night, he unveiled the blanket. To be perfectly honest.. i thought he was going to run away from it yelling "NOOOO!!!" or something very similar. Instead, what i got was... clapping and flapping. I swear if the boy had feathers, he would have FLAPPED away last night. HE WAS SO FREAKING EXCITED! So it goes without saying that.. he forgot about this blanket too lol Since then, he's carrying around this blanket like Linus from the Peanuts. I love it. HE LOVES IT!
I needed some happiness. Thanks bub :)
