Mr. Men

This house, or at least a few certain someones within it, are a bit Mr Men crazy. To be fair, the new Mr Men show is pretty funny, and considering, at least in Tassie, it only lasts 15 minutes we tend to tune in daily. Not all the old characters have shown themselves in the new version, but many of the classics are there; Mr Bump, Mr Grumpy, Mr Stubborn, Mr Loud, Miss Calamity, Miss Chatterbox, etc.

Check out the fun for yourself over at Mr Men. For a really good laugh check out the Mr Noisy video. This one has us in stitches just about everytime we watch it. Lawrence is hoping the shows come out on video soon so he can "get one for the boys." I personally believe that's just an excuse..

Morgan is so infatuated with Mr Men that he spends ages drawing them for us and then asking us to guess which one he's drawn. He does a really good job with it. Jayden, on the other hand, doesn't bother drawing anything, he simply does something and says, "Guess who I am?" I'd like to point out that his two favorite characters are Mr Rude and Mr Noisy, need I say more?

So, when the kids saw plush Mr & Little Miss toys at the shop they were very excited. Yesterday, when I made a dash out for milk and supper supplies Daddy told them they could each pick one of the smaller versions. True to fashion Morgan chose Little Miss Scary, and Jayden chose Mr Loud. However, it didn't stop there. Daddy had to get Mr Grumpy, and when I said that someone *SHOULD* have gotten Mr Bump because he's so funny he was tossed in the cart for me. All I can say is thank goodness the kids didn't say, "Here's your Mr Bump Mom!" after the toys were rung up.

Check out the resemblances below:
