This is what I heard all day last Thursday....and I mean all day. Along with.... "Barney, Baby Bop, and BJ are coming to my house." I would just agree with him thinking he was just exploring his imagination. Turns out he really DID think they were coming over and as the day progressed and they didn't come he started getting upset.
"Call Barney, Mommy. Tell him to come soon." So I played along and pretended to call Barney but I was starting to get worried. I obviously knew that Barney and all his friends were not going to be making a stop at house but Bubby G was adamant that they were.
Then he switched gears a bit and decided he needed to go find Barney and he was positive that Barney was on the farm. So Mr. G and I took Bubby G and Sissy G to my cousin's farm to look for Barney.
Guess our trip to the farm wasn't enough to get Bubby G's mind off of Barney.
When we got back to our house and we noticed that Bubby G was really starting to get upset I decided to take him into Wal-Mart to find him a Barney to bring home. He was so excited....at least until we got to Wal-Mart and we realized that they had no Barney.
He was in tears when we got home so we decided to go for a walk trying to find Barney. And, of course, we had no luck. After seeing our lil man so upset and disappointed Mr. G and I decided that the next day we would take Bubby G to St. Clair....an hour away...to Toys-R-Us to find him a Barney to bring home.
But, just as our luck would have it, Toys-R-Us had no Barney either.
The next day Mr. G was telling a woman he works with about our Barney adventure and she told Mr. G that she has a Barney from when her kids were little and she would let Bubby G have it if he wanted it. Talk about an answered prayer.
