I was at Target in Albany last night and I almost didn't look... but I decided I probably should... and voila! Mater! MATER! Not one, not two, but THREE MATERS... and I bought them all! I did the happy dance and called Rob in the middle of the store. I FOUND MATER!
I haven't decided whether to let them earn them or to save them for Easter Baskets yet.
For those of you who haven't been keeping track of my saga, I've been on the hunt for Mater for probably a full year now. I mean, looking every time I go to any store that might possibly carry the Cars cars. Even going out of our way to stop at malls to see if they have a store that would carry a large enough selection of the Cars to possibly have Mater. He's been elusive, unavailable, never there. But he's like the second to the main character, so no collection is complete without him.
Last week I finally went and bought a 'brand new Mater', even though he's only brand new for like 2 seconds of the movie. Titus has been carrying him around and sleeping with him for a whole week now. I can't wait til he gets his Mater!
Yes, when you are a mom, some things are worth blogging about and this is most certainly one of them!
