Alex's Dream Home

Alex's school has their annual book fair going on right now, and on Friday, we joined him for lunch so we could go shopping. There was a huge display for the 'Wimpy Kid' books. We pre-ordered Wimpy Kid #5, which is released next month. But Alex also found another Wimpy Kid book he didn't own... the Do-It-Yourself Book.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid Do-It-Yourself Book

I wasn't so keen on purchasing this book, but I also thought the idea of Alex keeping a journal was pretty cool. And if it encourages his love of reading... call me a sucker.

The book is about half blank pages, half fill-in-the blanks.

My favorites of what he has done so far:

Drawn Dad, Ryan, Granny (spelled Grane) and myself:

I love the fact that Carl, Mom and I all have glasses. And that he has drawn the smallest person here, Ryan, as the largest.

He also drew his own Zoo-Wee-Mama comic strip. In case you are unfamiliar with Wimpy Kid lore, the Zoo-Wee-Mama comics feature prominently. They ordinarily look like this:

And here is Alex's:

And finally, the piece de resistance, Alex drew his very own dream home.

Zooming in on the architectural plans, his future home will be free.

And it will include a bowling alley, a 50 foot long bed (wonder what he plans on doing there??) as well as a 100 foot massage table. I asked him why the massage table, and he said it was for me. That's my boy!

He's also planning to add a movie theater, a race track, four dining tables, a hot tub, an arcade, a pool (and his WILL have a diving board, I was told). The final square, off to the right, was the last addition. Its his "War Room." Nope, its not a room to plan his mother's presidential run. Its a room for army tanks and where he can play with all his war weapons. Now THAT would be Carl's boy.
