Random redemption

We have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the latest lego minifigures-Lego Batman Movie! All of our intell pointed to a release date of January first. Sometimes they take a little while to find the bullseye, but I didn't want to take any chances. Late Sunday afternoon, after pretending to not know what little pouches I was talking about, I was shown this display.
I believe that is called adding insult to injury. I had other Targets I could try, but after three Targets were sold out and two Walmarts showed no signs, I knew things were looking grim. I felt like I had failed as a mother. There was still one possibility, but I told my son he would have to accompany me...to the giraffe store.
I was proud of his skills in mystery figure detection! Now if he would just figure out some general housekeeping chores (and have a fleeting interest in performing them).
