Took the kids to Disney's Animal Kingdom last week, and my son fell in love with Chip and Dale (who were dressed in dinosaur costumes).
So my wife finds out that they sell little Chip and Dale stuffed animals *in the dino costumes.* She gets a friend to buy them while they're at Animal Kingdom a few days later. I don't know if I've ever seen my boy as excited as he was opening those toys.
For me it was a "this is why I love being a dad" moment.
