Aaaarrrrrrrr!!!

Happy "talk like a pirate" day.

It also happens to be Charlotte's second birthday.

Apparently I have done something particularly awful to my brother and sister in law. I can't fathom any other reason why they would give her this for a birthday present.

Seriously - after five minutes with it, you want to shoot yourself.  Even better, if the kid wanders off, after a couple of minutes IT CALLS  THEM BACK.  I'm not making this up.

Oh, and she adores it.  Took it to bed and pushed the button over and over and over again for twenty five minutes before she went to sleep.

Belay that - I hear it on the monitor again.

Think she'll notice if I take it back and get her something that doesn't require batteries?

EDIT:  Okay, we put her to bed an hour ago.  Bedtime is 7:30.  I just went up and turned it OFF.  The howling is now raising the roof.  Sigh.  This is one of many reasons why I haven't bought her any battery-powered toys.

Thank you Bruce.  Thank you very much.
