Sucker

Cole has been trading little plastic animals with another boy at daycare. A lion for a tiger, a cow for a pig, etc. No big deal. Cole is always so excited each day to show me what he traded for.

Today was no exception.

When we were in the car, Cole exclaimed, "I gave my plastic fish to B today!"

I asked him what he traded it for.

Wait for it...





A plastic soda lid and 2 popcorn kernels.

Seriously.

I'm pretty sure someone got screwed on that deal.

Pin It!

hehehehe....he might need someone to intervene on his behalf. But I bet he was happy with the trade...and that's all that matters.

Becky said...

that's pretty awesome!

Delberta said...

I bet he thought he got the cement footer of a grain bin, and corn to fill the bin. ; )

My son asked for a certain toy for weeks, and he finally got it last weekend. He loved it for two days before trading it for a crappy little lego man, which he promptly lost at beavers.

LOL At least he didn't feel cheated!

Susan said...

What a trade! I think his buddy made out pretty good.

Merrie said...

Go Cole! lol What a happy little heart he has -- that's awesome!

lori said...

I was so thinking what Delberta said...but not in those technical terms. Like a trough and some corn, mom.
He is a cutie!

Bren said...

I'm with Lori! Maybe it's part of his master plan to keep trading up (down?).

Tiffany said...

LOL well at least he was happy with his prize(?) I guess thats what matters right? haha

Bonnie said...

Who knows what little guys are thinking when they are making trades. Maybe Cole thought he could plant the kernels and grow some corn. As long as he is happy(we know the other guy is), that's all that matters.

Emily said...

Awe, poor Cole. Just as long as he's happy though...

Michelle said...

There you go, you could have gotten by for christmas with pop lids and corn....hello.

Teri said...

Is this other kid 25 years old? Yikes. :-)

Momma@Live. Laugh. Pull your hair out said...

Who knows? In 25 years he can have them appraised and they might be worth some $$$!!!!!!

Becky said...

You know it! What the heck is B going to do with a plastic fish??

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Linda said...

first, that picture of him is adorable. he is such a handsome young man---but apparently no Donald Trump. perhaps, he should watch a couple episodes of the Apprentice.....
