When discussing that he’d be going to my husband’s parents’ house for the weekend, Little Man started complaining about how his Grandma had kept two of his Transformers, which really upset him.
“Did you tell her they were yours?” I asked.
“I did, but she thinks they’re hers and said she better keep them for all the grandkids to play with. Can you believe that?!”
“Are you sure they’re yours?” Between the ones we’ve purchased, have found at yard sales, or he’s been gifted, he probably has 50 different Transformers.
“Of course I am! I know all of my Transformers,” he said and proceeded to rattle off the names of his various Transformers. “And you see what’s missing there? Starscream and Bulkhead. I only had one Starscream and Bulkhead, and now I have none. You know why? Because she kept them.”
“I’ll talk to her, then,” I offered.
“No need, Mom. I’m going to take my vengeance on Grandma.”
“I’m going to tell her to either hand over Starscream and Bulkhead or vengeance will be mine.”
I’m not sure whether to laugh or be slightly horrified. “Okay, um…how, exactly, do you plan to take revenge on her?”
He considered this for a moment. “Well, I’ll tell her that she needs to give back the Transformers she stole from me, and if she doesn’t, I’ll pass out right in front of her.”
“That’s how you’re going to get her back? You’re going to pass out?”
“Mom, it’s not going to be passing out for real, it’ll be fake. But it’ll scare her enough to give them back.”
Shit getting real over Transformers!
I texted his grandma and let her know what was up. “I didn’t realize I kept his Transformers. He can definitely have them back. I don’t want him pretending to pass out! lol!”
The morning he went back, Little Man told me that he changed his mind. “I don’t think I’m going to seek vengeance on Grandma after all. But I am going to ask her to give back my stolen Transformers.”
“That’s probably good,” I told him. “I don’t think Grandma would want you passing out all over the place.”
When I picked him up yesterday, he had not only the two stolen Transformers, but another one had surfaced as well.
