The One Where I Buy a Semi-Pornographic Thermometer

So, as I've mentioned before change is evil here at the Castle.  And change is upon us in the form of cooler weather.  For the last four years we have battled with Fall and every year he kicks our, well, you know.  So I just purchased a little something that I hope will help us win this round . . . a somewhat risque thermometer for our spirited miss.

As well as telling the temperature, there is a picture of a lady, who bears a striking resemblance to "Barbie" who is in various states of dress (or undress) as the weather dictates.  I am hopeful that this will help reinforce what I am telling my spirited little girl in terms of choosing weather appropriate clothing.  It was a relief to finally find one that fit her specific requirements (this is not our first attempt at this):  not a boy, not a little girl, not a girl that really looks like a boy.  Thank you amazon.com for having this lovely option this year!!

Fingers crossed that our little miss sees this as
"such a hot day, I should wear a tank top dress" and
*not*
"whoo-hoo I can get away with just wearing my unders".

I read your title and literally clicked and re-clicked thinking I had stumbled upon something inappropriate. Heehee. I hope this helps too. I wouldn't mind having Barbie help me dress either. ☺ Crossing fingers for you!

OK... *how* did they get my picture, and *how* did they get it on that thermometer?!

Wow, pretty risque! But if it works...our little "weather person" is "Willy Weather," and he does get down to swim trunks, but nothing like yours!

Momma Chronicles, the King says, you gotta be careful what you post on the internet . . . you never know where it might end up! ;)
Sarahendipity, sorry for the scare. My evil side couldn't resist! :)
