Joey now officially has a new obsession: Transformers. First, it was everything Mickey Mouse – how he would want all things with that mouse logo, right down to his shirts. Then he moved on to Cars. We even got a big McQueen car he can drive around the compound and a bed decked in Cars-motif. 
 
But Transformers wasn’t an instant hit with the little boy. Two of our friends had already given him each a robot last Christmas which just accumulated dust in Joey’s toy box. But a few months back, Joey and I chanced upon AXM showing Transformers the entire day. And I was in big trouble.
A few weeks ago, we went to the toy store to buy presents for his friend’s birthday. I knew Joey would never ask me to buy toys when I told him before hand that our sole purpose for going to the toy store was to buy gifts. I was so touched by this that I offered to buy Bumblebee (to which the little boy even refused an Optimus Prime, saying, he just wants Bumblebee). Being the good boy that he is, Joey just asked that I take him to watch the new movie instead of Prime – which we didn’t get to do, unfortunately, as Joey had been having an on and off fever for the past two weeks.

Bumblebee

Can anyone tell me who he is?



So, as an additional bonus for his being such a sweet little boy, and as a reward for acing his first exams, I got him Prime. 😀

Now he’s hinting at having Sentinel Prime as well.

 *****
Joey: Mom, why did Optimus Prime and Sentinel Prime fight?
Me: Because Sentinel is a bad robot.
Joey: But he’s an autobot. Autobots are good robots.
Me: Yes, he’s an autobot but he became a bad robot.
Joey: But why???
