Buzz Lightyear TO THE RESCUE!

Barnum is MORE than obsessed with Buzz Lightyear. He truly believes himself to BE Buzz Lightyear. This fact was made evident one time when he was being placed in "time out." You see, when he became what The Strong Man and I deemed as "eligible" for "time out," his mommy was paralyzed and his daddy was juggling too many flaming batons. Therefore, we needed more of a time out PLACE versus a time out SPOT. A place he couldn't run away from.

Barnum & Bailey's sweet, sweet Aunt (hmmmmm. We'll call her The Puppetmaster) had the clever idea to use any parent's best friend...the Pack N Play. FYI....Worked like a CHARM!!!

Back to Buzz...One day The Strong Man was executing the "time out" routine with Barnum and the second he placed him in the Pack N Play Barnum stood up, pointed one arm straight at The Strong Man and used his other arm to deftly push imaginary buttons while yelling, "BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP!!! I don't want time out. I get you Zurg!! (The Evil Emperor from Toy Story I & II). The Strong Man reacted in textbook parenting form by falling to the ground and playing dead.


  1. Love it! Keep them coming, you have a gift!

  2. The Puppetmaster - huh? I am deeply honored and will do my best to live up to that name. I remember this exact incident. Very hilarious! Smart kid.

  3. I never heard about that! That is so funny! P.S. I need a name. I guess you have to have a story with me in it thought huh? We can work on that.
