tate-lang

When I was in school, I dreamed about becoming a psychiatrist or a ballerina. Like most girls I would dream about being a movie star too. But those dreams are the impossible kind, the kind you don’t really set your heart on.

I just stumbled across that vine again where the kid unwraps his present and it’s an avocado, and he’s just like “it’s an avocado!  …thanks!”

and Holly and I decided that is definitely something Stan would pull

and it definitely happens in the Stay-at-Home Stan AU.  Angie and Stan are like, at Tate’s third birthday party, and Angie realizes they didn’t get a gift for the lil tater tot.  she sends Stan to go get something for their nephew.  and Stan panics (”what do kids like what is appropriate for a toddler shit how much money am I supposed to spend I JUST met the kid”) and just grabs the first thing he sees at Walmart.  which happens to be an avocado.

Angie facepalms a bit when Tate unwraps his present, but he seems somewhat genuinely happy at having an avocado, and the adults are really amused, so it’s not like it ends poorly.

she does tell him later that, generally speaking, produce is not an acceptable gift for a toddler.
