something you need to know . . .

if you want to be a two year old with any social standing whatsoever in our local park, it is necessary - - absolutely necessary to own one of these little plastic motorcycles (called motos); everyone who is anyone has one.
if your parents don't want to dish out the fifty bucks to buy you your own moto, make sure that you know someone who does own one (in this plaza it tends to be the lovely little Jaquelyn); stand next to it, eying it wistfully and reaching out a longing hand towards it until the mother of the moto-blessed friend pushes it towards you and urges you to get on and do a little loop.

Absolutely and totally true!

It is the same down here in the south. Even for girls.

I went to toys r us thinking these things would be worth 10-15€. They aren't really that advanced at the end of the day... 38€?!?! Forget it.

Is he wearing an eye-patch? If he was, what a great combo.

Aren't kids toys expensive? It's terrible how over-priced they are. We want to get the girls tricycles, but will have to go on a goodwill hunt.

We have a moto! I didn't realize how cool that makes us. Fortunately we rescued it off the side of the road. Emma has grown out of it, so when you come to LA you can take it with you. I'm seriously spoiling your "traveling with next to nothing policy." HA!
