Little Lobster

Backstory: When Mark was little, he was never afraid of monsters under the bed. Instead, he was afraid of lobsters under the bed because they could crawl out at night and snap off your fingers. He succeeded in getting his younger brother to share this fear.

I found this out not too long ago, and I obviously had to share it with a few friends. My friend Katrina followed up by buying Mark a lobster claw oven mitt so he "could bite back." Now I tend to gravitate to lobster items, although Steven doesn't have a stuffed lobster yet.

I was at a mom-to-mom sale yesterday and was looking for a halloween costume for the little buddy when I found this. It was way too good to pass up (and at $4 a pretty good deal!). As you can see, he's not too sure about it. . .maybe because we all were laughing at him :) Have you ever seen a cuter lobster?!

No, I have never seen a cuter lobster : )! Not even in the tank at Red Lobster, and there are LOTS of cute Lobsters in there! I would like to gobble that baby up though. He is so delicious!

Definitely the cutest lobster I've ever seen. Great back-story. I'll have to share that with Phil. So, is Mark still scared of lobsters?
