Thomas and the Jailbreak

Yesterday, we went on two Epic Adventures. The first was to the mall, to buy birthday presents for the Little as well as various other sundries. The second was to Price Chopper, because the fridge, freezer and all the cupboards were empty. Really and truly empty. While at Price Chopper, Daddy bought Big this:
Now, this particular Thomas is VERY securely fastened into the package. Unfortunately, it is displayed in a cutaway so that little children can see and touch Thomas, but not get him out. So, for the subsequent grocery shopping and while waiting in line, I had to hear "Mommy, want to get Thomas OUT!" in a high, squeaky voice. Repeated approximately every 30 seconds.
Finally, convinced my head would explode if I heard the phrase even one more time, I handed Big a pencil, and told him to draw a picture of Thomas on the box. He did that, but then decided to use the pencil to better ends, and tried to stab enough holes in the box to break Thomas out. It didn't work, but I admired his initiative!
