--It was past time to get Manny a new pair of shoes, so I checked them out while we were at Target the other day. Much to my delight, I saw these cute retro looking sneakers that I thought were perfect. Manny, on the other hand, flipped.his.lid. when I took his shoes off to try these on him. Like bloody-murder-she's-slicing-me-with-razors screams. I managed
to wrestle him down to get one on long enough to see that it fit right, and decided to take a chance and get them. After we left Target, we went through the drive-thru at Chick-fil-a to pick up dinner before church. While waiting in line, I suddenly see something go whizzing by my head and land in the front seat. I look down and it was one of Manny's shoes. I asked what he was doing, and he started screaming bloody murder (much like he'd just done in Target) wanting his shoes on. I told him he shouldn't have taken them off and thrown them, and turned around to give him his shoe when he starts saying, "No mama, other shoe. I want it! I want it! I want it! Shoooosh on I want it. Mama. Shoooosh on. I want it." I finally realized he was possibly asking for his new shoes, so I pulled them out of the bag and said, "These?" to which he wildy applauded and said, "Yay!! You did it!!" So yes. It actually was quite the accomplishment figuring out what he wanted as it's anybody's guess these days, and I'm not gonna lie...it was nice to be recognized with a little applause from the peanut gallery. Am I the only one with a bipolar toddler? Needless to say, he loves them now and talks about them all the time. For today anyway. :)
--Have you upgraded to the new iOS on your iPhone yet? I did but haven't had much of a chance to explore the changes. I did see the camera takes panoramic shots now, which is SUPER cool! (I've been told it only works with the 4s or 5 though.) We're in the process of changing Manny's room, so this isn't really decorated right now how it will be...but I just wanted to show what the camera can do. I think it will be so fun to have. I also LOVE the new Maps app! It talks to you and is amazing. So much better than the old version. Oh and the new emoticons!! There are some fun additions. Do you know of any new changes or fun things in iOS 6? If so, please share!
