Aw-ful or Awe-some?
As much as I don't like my dog, he really is well behaved. But as soon as company steps foot in our house, he goes berserk. He starts doing all kind of naughty things he doesn't normally do just to get a little attention out of our guests. We have friends visiting this week.
My way-into-superhero-crazies collect these little three inch superhero action figures. And since we have guests, Chief decided to turn War Machine into lunch. He feasted on his foot before we got it out of his mouth.
Parker was devastated. He pleaded for a new one and was near tears. Reid on the other hand could not have been more excited. One of his favorite superheros now has a stump...just like him. It couldn't have been more exciting to my one-footed two year old.
My first reaction, truthfully was more like Parker's. That's a toy that gets played with regularly. I really considered replacing it. They're not very expensive. But Reid's excitement was so cute, I don't think we need a new one. Just because something is missing a foot doesn't mean it's broken. And footless or not, he still looks just as tough and awesome as before (plus a few battle wounds in the shape of teeth marks).
