calling all super readers (UPDATED to add size 3T)

to the book club!

This is a public cry for help. My child is in need, and so far I have been unable to help him on my own. I am now reaching out to you, and asking you to help me help him. You guys are scattered across Oregon, California, Massachusetts, Texas, the Midwest, and the Southeast. Surely, if we all work together, one of us will be able to resolve the crisis. After all, it takes a village, right?

Asher needs new Diego jammies.

Apparently, Diego is SO 2007, and since Asher was not yet aware of the existence of cartoons at that point, he missed the fad. I bought some Diego pajamas on consignment, but Asher outgrew them before it got cool enough to wear them. Nonetheless, he spotted them in his drawer, and his gleeful cries of "Diego JAMMIES!" could not be ignored.

Exhibit A:



Please note the exuberance over the Diego jammies.

Exhibit B:



Please note his exposed little belly, the restricted movement in the shoulders, and the sleeves that can't quite reach his wristbone.

The child NEEDS Diego pajamas. Needs them. And no self-respecting toddler (or his mother) can continue to abide jammies that are so clearly too small. I check W@l-m@art and T@rget every time I go, and they are nowhere - nowhere, I say - to be found. But you, dear friends, have OTHER W@l-m@rts and DIFFERENT T@rgets in your areas. Maybe Diego is still in fashion among preschoolers in your area. There's only one way to find out.

Please keep an eye out for us. If you find them, PLEASE buy them (as long as they are priced such that you don't gasp and say, "WHAT?! For PAJAMAS?!"). I will write you a check including shipping, and put it in the mail as soon as I hear from you. Together, we can help Asher achieve his dream of wearing Diego to bed every night.

Those pictures are too cute! (The sheer joy in his face is priceless and could be a diego commercial.) I'll keep a look out at the stores here. I also found this website: http://godiegogo.tystoybox.com/ttc/Pajamas/cPath/10459.html

So funny! If all else fails, could you buy some plain pajamas, cut out the diego from the old pajamas, and sew it on the new pajamas, applique style?

This is why I need you guys. It didn't even OCCUR to me to look online for them. Thanks.
