Cuddle Time Chimp/Conversations with Claire

Has anybody seen these? It's this monkey made by the Fur Real Friends people, and it makes chimp noises and hugs you and stuff...Claire has been talking about it for a while. I had never seen it, though.

So a commercial for it just comes on and she yells, "Mommy! There it is! Look!"

I watch the commercial, and I have to admit, it's kinda cute. When the commercial is over, Claire turns to me and says, "So, you TOTALLY want me to get one, right???" rofl!!! Is she a manipulator or what? She doesn't just come out and say "I want one of those", she turns it into something that I want for her!

When she was a baby...long before she could talk...if I was somewhere and picked up some outfit or some little toy I was considering buying her, I think she actually knew whether or not it was for her, and whether or not she liked/wanted it. And if she liked it, she would throw up on it! And I had to buy it then! lol!

Ah yes! The puke on it and you have to buy it trick. A classic gambit.

I think all children inately know how to manipulate thier parents. It is like the penguin chick pecking the red dot on the parents' bill to get them to barf up breakfast. Or something like that, anywy. Yes, well...
